A benefit concert was held at T-Mobile Arena on Friday night to help raise money for those impacted by October’s mass shooting that left 58 people dead and injured nearly 550.
The concert itself featured Las Vegas’ mainstays such as Celine Dion, Elton John, Boyz II Men and Cirque du Soleil.
Though, some pretty big sports stars also took time out of their busy schedules to appear and help raise money for those most impacted by the tragedy.
Vegas native and former NL MVP Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals and NASCAR legend Kurt Busch were also in attendance to pay tribute. In addition to this, players from the NHL’s newest franchise, the Las Vegas Golden Knights, shared an important message with the crowd.
The scene itself was festive as all get out as thousands of fans poured into the new home of the Golden Knights to help raise money.
“The cheerful conclusion brought all performers to the stage for a chorus of the late, great Elvis Presley’s ‘Viva Las Vegas,’ with Dan Reynolds and Brandon Flowers exchanging lead vocals,” the benefit’s official site noted.
It’s not yet known how much money was raised, but the fact that so many big stars came out to support those impacted by the shooting tells us a story of a region that remains united.
