Due to popular demand, LaMontagne added second dates to Boston (11/23) and Chicago (12/1), both of which are now sold out as well. The Boston shows sold out within 30 minutes. As on past tours, front row and 5th row tickets were sold thru Tickets-for-Charity and are completely sold out. The tour has generated over $33,000 in gross donations to benefit charities including The National Children’s Cancer Society and others.
Ray will also play at “Love for Levon” a benefit celebrating the life and music of Levon Helm on October 3rd as well as at Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit on October 20th and October 21st.
