Band Together NC Announces its Headline Act for Red Hat Amphitheater
St. Paul & the Broken Bones will headline the Band Together NC show this year, the organization announced Tuesday.
The eight-piece retro-soul band from Alabama will be the main attraction June 1 at Raleigh’s Red Hat Amphitheater. Toots and the Maytals also is on the bill, with one more support act to be announced later.
In years past, Band Together acts have included Lyle Lovett, B-52s, Hall & Oates, Trampled By Turtles, Ben Folds, American Aquarium and Walk the Moon.
Band Together shows have raised $9 million since 2001, benefiting groups such as the Special Olympics, Tammy Lynn Center for Developmental Disabilities and Kidznotes.
St. Paul & The Broken Bones, formed in 2012, have released several albums and EPs, including “Young Sick Camellia,” in September.
The band Metallica also raised $10,000 for Inter-Faith Food Shuttle at its concert Monday night at Raleigh’s PNC Arena.
