The Houston native announced on Instagram that the concert, titled “Orion’s Rise,” will take place in Boston’s Orpheum Theater on Sept. 28. Knowles will be joined on stage by jazz band The Sun Ra Arkestra.
“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,” the singer wrote on Instagram.
She later announced that she decided to add an additional concert in New York City’s Radio City Music Hall on Oct. 3. Knowles will donate $3 from every ticket sold for this show back to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
Rock band Fall Out Boy previously announced that they would donate all proceeds from their Houston concert to Harvey relief.
Many other celebrities have pledged support for those impacted by the storm, including Knowles’ sister Beyonce who pledged relief support through her organization BeyGood. Sandra Bullock and Leonardo DiCaprio each pledged $1 million donations.
I will be doing a special "Orions Rise" show in Boston, and ALL proceeds will go towards Hurricane Harvey Relief. 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 !
