Tickets now on sale for Annapolis Rising and Concert information update

Updated Information about Annapolis Rising: A Benefit for The Capital Gazette and Free Press Event features Capital Gazette Journalists, Good Charlotte, Less Than Jake & Jordan Klepper 


Annapolis, MD (7-20-18) – Last week, Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley announced the City will host a benefit concert on July 28 for the victims’ families and survivors of June 28’s mass shooting at The Capital Gazette building in Annapolis. The concert also will promote freedom of the press and its importance to our country’s democracy. Headlining the concert is international recording artist, Good Charlotte, a Maryland-based band with connection to the City. In addition, just announced, Less Than Jake, another national recording artist currently performing on the Vans Warped Tour, will open for Good Charlotte in the evening portion of the event. Jordan Klepper, from Comedy Central’s The Opposition and Klepper shows, will speak before Less Than Jake. 


The concert will begin at 12 noon with several musical performances by additional local bands, including Dublin 5, Clones of Funk, The Great Heights Band, Higher Hands, Skribe and more. Also joining the lineup will be guest speakers coming from the world of journalism, including Rick Hutzell, editor of The Capital and several reporters; Marty Baron, editor of The Washington Post; Elisabeth Bumiller – Washington Bureau Chief of the New York Times; and Tom LoBianco, formerly of Associated Press and CNN. Proceeds will be donated the fund established for the victims and survivors and journalism scholarships. 


The event will take place entirely on the block of Calvert Street between West and Northwest streets. (THIS IS A CHANGE from the original location.) Tickets cost $25 each (children age 10 and under are free with paying adult) and can be purchased on this link. There is a limit, first-come, first served, of 3,000 tickets due to space limitations. All sales will be online. Ticket holders must bring tickets with them to event. 


Legal identification required for alcohol purchases inside the venue. No chairs, coolers, backpacks or outside beverages allowed. There will be food and drink sold inside the event perimeter. Preferred parking is available at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium (Rowe Boulevard side of lot) for $10, with proceeds also going to the victims’ fund. Free shuttles will be transporting Navy stadium parkers to the event. Additional parking information available at www.annapolisparking.com 


Sponsors are helping offset costs associated with staging, A/V, security and more so that nearly all proceeds from tickets can be donated to The Capital Gazette’s victims fund.
