Before Swedish House Mafia hits New York City for a slew of shows on their final tour, the trio of superstars will throw a Black Tie Rave at Hammerstein Ballroom on February 28th to raise funds in support of hurricane relief. The show will be a much more intimate affair than the later shows at Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center.
100% of net proceeds will be donated to the mayor’s fund to advance New York City and the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund. Tickets will be auctioned off through Ticketmaster starting December 14th at 10am, and ending December 16th at 10pm. Starting bid for each ticket is $100 and fans can purchase a minimum of two tickets, and a maximum of four.
In an official statement, the group said “New York City has been a massive part of our journey and there was no better way to say thank you than to help out along with so many other worthwhile events. We had the night off before our Madison Square Garden gig…and what better way to spend it!”
Swedish House Mafia’s ‘One Last Tour’ has already kicked off in Europe, and will make it’s way to America in mid-February. The supergroup will hit Madison Square Garden on March 1st, and Barclay’s Center on March 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. They will close their tour by both opening and closing Ultra Music Festival in Miami.
