Planned Parenthood benefit w/ Courtney Love & Melissa Auf der Maur postponed over “public health concerns”
This Saturday's Planned Parenthood benefit at Town Hall with a partial Hole reunion of Courtney Love & Melissa Auf der Maur, and more has been postponed "in light of current public health concerns." Here's the full statement from Feminist Institute President Kathleen Landy:
"In light of current public health concerns, we are disappointed to have to postpone our benefit concert. We are deeply committed to the values represented by Planned Parenthood's Bans Off My Body campaign and grateful to Courtney Love, Melissa Auf der Maur, Perry and Etty Farrell, BETTY, Rachael Yamagata, Joan As Police Woman, Jesse Paris Smith & Rebecca Foon, and Mx Justin Vivian Bond, as well as Executive Producer Lawrence B. Benenson, Producer Hal Willner and Town Hall for supporting our efforts. We look forward to fulfilling the goals of the evening as soon as we can responsibly do so. Many thanks to all our friends and supporters for staying the course with us!"
The Feminist Institute, who are presenting the benefit, also say "The teams have already begun work on rescheduling the event. Tickets purchased will be honored at the rescheduled date, or refunds will be honored at point of purchase."
SXSW, Ultra Music Festival, Pearl Jam's spring tour (and Coachella it looks like) are all among the many music-related events being postponed/canceled due to public health concerns over the coronavirus.
