Kiss and Motley Crue Donate $100,000 to Colorado Movie Theater Shooting Victims
Real cool move from some unlikely heroes. During their Aug. 8 joint concert in Denver, Kiss and Motley Crue announced that they will be donating $100,000 to a relief fund set up to help victims of the July 20 movie theater shootings in nearby Aurora, Colo.
Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx explains this kind gesture, made to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund, quite simply: “Following the heartbreaking news of the senseless shootings in Colorado we wanted to do something to help the families and victims. We bonded together with our tour partners and friends Kiss to donate money, but we also hope it inspires others to do the same, no matter how big or small.”
Kiss frontman Paul Stanley adds, “The terror these innocent victims of the Aurora massacre must have experienced and the profound loss their families now face is unimaginable. We hope that our small gesture helps inspire others to band together in compassion and financial support for all involved in this unspeakable tragedy.”
