Celine Dion, Imagine Dragons and More Unite at Largest Vegas Strong Benefit Concert

December 3, 2017   02:43 pm


Céline Dion, Imagine Dragons and other top performers appeared onstage at the Vegas Strong Benefit Concert on Friday in Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena, the largest musical event to pay tribute to the victims of the October 1 shooting.

From inside a 32nd-floor suite at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, a male gunman fired below into the audience of the Route 91 Harvest Festival, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more before shooting himself dead. It marked the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Dion appeared in a video recorded in October at one of her concerts in Caesars Palace’s Colosseum, saying, “We dedicate tonight’s show to all the victims and their families and to the first responders and to the doctors and nurses who are working around the clock to save lives. And to so many heroes who did whatever they could to help complete strangers at a time of desperate needs.”

All proceeds from the concert are set to go to the Vegas Shooting Victims Fund. Dion had also donated the proceeds from her own show to the shooting survivors.
