Portland, Oregon, by way of Wasilla, Alaska-based band Portugal.
The Man to headline StubHub's
Next Stage Benefitting Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation (MHOF).
Bay Area schools benefitting from full ticket proceeds of the
benefit concert as well as a portion of an initial $250,000
provided to MHOF by StubHub include Westlake Middle School, Martin
Luther King, Jr. Elementary and KIPP Bridge Charter.
StubHub, the world's largest ticket marketplace, is taking music
to the next stage in its biggest music initiative yet to support
emerging artists while giving access to the true music fan.
Launching with its first self-produced and self-ticketed live
concert event, the Next Stage Concert Series, the San
Francisco date with Portugal. The Man is the third of the five
cross-country dates in the series that will raise money for the Mr.
Holland's Opus Foundation and local schools in each market.
The first took place in May in Los Angeles featuring Swedish
singer-songwriter Lykee Li and the second took place in June in
Nashville featuring Los Angeles-based rock band Grouplove.
Portugal. The Man said: "Where we grew up there was no
music education. We think about how different our lives would have
been growing up had we had the opportunity to explore our creative
sides. As a band, Portugal. The Man has always done whatever we
can to encourage kids to explore music and the arts. We are
excited to partner with StubHub to help give kids the tools they
need to explore their creativity."
