SULLY & FRIENDS: LIVE FROM THE LIVING ROOM MARATHON FUNDRAISER TO BENEFIT THE SCARS FOUNDATION

Sully Erna of GODSMACK has gathered some of rock’s top voices for his SULLY & FRIENDS: LIVE FROM THE LIVING ROOM marathon fundraiser to benefit THE SCARS FOUNDATION, which he founded. The Thursday, August 6 benefit will stream on his YouTube channel and The Scars Foundation’s Facebook page at 8:00 PM (ET)/5:00 PM (PT) and will feature special sets from Godsmack, Aaron Lewis (Staind), Brent & Zach Of Shinedown, Papa Roach, Mike & Adam Of Saint Asonia, Nuno Bettencourt, and Clint Lowery (Sevendust), as well as special performances from Sully Erna accompanied by Chris Lester and Máiréad Nesbitt.

Beyond the livestream (which will feature a live ticker displaying how much money is being raised throughout the event), a 10-day auction will advance the event with a variety of GODSMACK instruments (listed below); bids can be placed here.
