Remy Shand, Avril Lavigne And Gang Work To Combat SARS

MTV News reports Canada’s music elite, including Avril Lavigne, Sum 41, Sarah McLachlan, Barenaked Ladies, Our Lady Peace, Glenn Lewis, Remy Shand and the Tragically Hip are joining forces to battle Toronto’s tourism troubles, which began when the SARS broke out there earlier this year.

The show is set to take place come 21st of June at Toronto’s Skydome and the adjacent Air Canada Centre.

“We rely on concerts to bring in a lot of tourists to Toronto in the summer, so the reason this was put together by various levels of government and promoters was because we saw an opportunity to give back to the city using Canadian acts, showing the world that Toronto is open for business” said Brett Gallagher, vice president of concerts for the Skydome.
