Fredericton Strong benefit concert pays tribute to first responders

Some of the biggest names in Canadian music took the stage at the Aitken Centre in Fredericton Saturday night to show the world that the city is stronger than ever.

That lineup included Matt Mays, Matt Andersen &The Mellotones, Classified, Neon Dreams, Tristan Horncastle, Tebey, Madeline Merlo, Ria Mae, Whitehorse, The Trews and David Myles who also served as host and MC for the evening.

The five-hour show in front of a sold out crowd of more than 3-thousand,  paid tribute to first responders and families .

All proceeds will stay in the community supporting three key support services who helped those impacted immediately following the tragic events of this spring and summer in the capital region and will continue to service our community as we work towards recovery.
 
The Canadian Red Cross in New Brunswick,  the Chalmers Foundation and the Canadian Mental Health Association of New Brunswick will each receive a minimum of $25,000 from the proceeds of the event.

The exact totals will be calculated in the coming days.
