Kesha concert in downtown Pittsburgh renamed ‘Stronger Than Hate’

November 23, 2018

A nonprofit advocacy organization of LGBT issues announced that its Liberty Avenue “Countdown 2 Vote” concert event with Kesha has been renamed to “Stronger Than Hate.”

The proceeds from the event will be donated to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh Our Victims of Terror Fund.

“Last Saturday, we saw the worst of America. We look to use the power of music to come together and help people heal,” said Gary Van Horn, president of Delta Foundation.

The Grammy Award nominee wrote in a Facebook post that her heart “is filled with sadness following the horrible events” in Pittsburgh.

“I’m so sorry for the pain and suffering that so many are going through. I will still be coming to Pittsburgh this Saturday to play my show and deliver as much peace and positivity as I can. Let’s show the world that there is only love and always hope in Pittsburgh,” Kesha wrote.

The singer has been outspoken on political issues such as gun control and support for the LGBT community.

The Nov. 3 concert aims to encourage more people to vote in the Nov. 6 midterm elections.

Tickets can be purchased for $59 online or by calling 888-71-TICKETS. The event is a general admission show where no chairs or outside beverages are permitted. Those under 18 are permitted inside only with a parent or guardian over 25. Proper government ID is required.
