Solange announces Boston show to benefit Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Houston


Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

A famed Houston native will be leaning on Boston to help victims of those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Solange has announced a special benefit concert to assist ongoing relief efforts in Houston, and the first night takes place at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston on September 28. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (August 31), we’re told. A second benefit show will go down October 3 at Radio City Music Hall in New York, where she’ll donate $3 from every ticket sold to the cause.

But the Boston date is all in on the fundraising.

“I will be doing a special ‘Orions Rise’ show in Boston, and ALL proceeds will go towards Hurricane Harvey Relief,” Solange writes on Instagram. “I’m committed to partnering with organizations on the ground in Houston and making contributions to uplift the city that raised me with so much love. See you September 28th Boston, I thank you in advance for making this a special meaningful night!”

Alabama’s Sun Ra Arkestra will open the show.

This will be Solange’s first appearance in Boston since she pulled out of Boston Calling Music Festival at the last minute back in May. When Solange announced she was bailing on the fest, to be replaced on the bill by Migos, she promised that she’d make it up to fans in the city.
