'N Sync will play a charity show on Miami's South Beach on November 11th. Ticket sales are limited to the VIP reserved seats, those closest to the stage. The nearly 2,000 seats will sell for $100 dollars each, while the rest of the show will be free admission, standing only.
With most of the costs of the concert footed by corporate sponsors and the city itself, the proceeds from the ticket sales, merchandise and concessions will go towards the families of the New York City Police officers and firefighters killed in the September 11th tragedy.
"My heart and the hearts of the guys breaks for those who have lost loved ones in this tragedy," 'N Sync's Lance Bass wrote in a post on the group's Web site. "Please know that my prayers are with you and the rest of our country in the coming days of recovery. It is important that we not resort to the same type of evil by mistreating innocent people because of our anger . . . Although we will never understand how anything this tragic could happen in our country, I believe God loves us and will get us through this. I am comforted by that fact."
'N Sync are also set to perform at the October 21st United We Stand charity concert at RFK Stadium in Washington D.C. The show will also feature Aerosmith, P. Diddy and Michael Jackson.
