Rockers Motley Crue and Kiss have banned together to pledge $100,000 to the victims of the Colorado cinema shooting last month.
The bands had a tour stop in Denver on Wednesday night, and have announced that they will be handing the generous donation over to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund.
Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx said in a statement; “Following the heartbreaking news of the senseless shootings in Colorado we wanted to do something to help the families and victims. We bonded together with our tour partners and friends Kiss to donate money, but we also hope it inspires others to do the same, no matter how big or small.”
Kiss’ Paul Stanley adds, “The terror these innocent victims of the Aurora massacre must have experienced and the profound loss their families now face is unimaginable. We hope that our small gesture helps inspire others to band together in compassion and financial support for all involved in this unspeakable tragedy.”
Twelve died and fifty-eight were injured when James Holmes opened fire on the Colorado theater during a midnight showing of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in July.
