Anthrax is confirmed for Saturday’s Revolution Rock Festival in Connecticut and will take the stage at 1:30PM to insure they get to Brooklyn in time for the Saint Vitus show. The band has already begun to kick around ideas for a different set list and other surprises for Saturday’s show.
“With tomorrow night’s show having sold out so quickly, we decided to do a second one to bring more awareness to Gilda’s Club NYC,” said Anthrax’s Scott Ian. “Two shows in one day – it’s going to be amazing, so come on down.”
Gilda’s Club NYC was founded in 1995 in memory of Gilda Radner, the talented comedienne and original cast member of “Saturday Night Live” who passed away in 1989 from cancer. GCNYC’s mission is to support, educate and empower cancer patients and their families.
Way to go, boys. Great thing for them to promote this cause. I used to love Gilda Radner’s character, Roseanne Roseannadanna, on Saturday Night Live.
