The DAVE MATTHEWS BAND will perform in the latest installment of STAND UP FOR A CURE's 2008 Concert Series at MADISON SQUARE GARDEN on September 10th. The exclusive event will be hosted by JULIA ROBERTS and will be preceded by a private VIP pre-show party featuring DJ SAMANTHA RONSON.
The NEW YORK-based non-profit STAND UP FOR A CURE created the 2008 Concert Series as a year-long effort to raise funds and awareness for lung cancer research and treatment. BON JOVI was the first act to perform in the Series, which has also included performances by JERRY SEINFELD and BRIAN WILSON.
"We are thrilled at the range of artists who have opted to shine a light on the need for funding and awareness this year," Founder/Exec. Producer JORDAN BELKIN said. "The combination of world-class entertainment, underwritten by generous corporate and private citizens, and the support and interest from the public and the media is a testament to what can be accomplished when public figures lend a hand to a worthy cause."
