There are no tickets left but that's ok.

There are 1000 forum members here...

so how many of us have got tickets for the gig?
and how many can support the tribute (and Ron's foundation) without a ticket?

Personally I think it's 50 bucks well spent, ticket or no ticket.

We can donate directly at the foundation's website http://www.ronashetonfoundation.org

Here's a bit copied from http://www.ronashetonfoundation.org/news/ -

'Organizer Kathy Asheton speaks about the Stooges’ homecoming tribute to Ron Asheton...

Q. So how did this concert all come together?

A. The idea came about because of wanting to start a foundation for Ron. I asked Jim (Iggy Pop) if he would perform and said that he was more than happy to help out. Some time went by and then I got the idea to put it into motion, and of course we thought it would have to happen in Ann Arbor. My thinking was that it would also be a tribute to Ron and a celebration of him, and would include friends that hadn’t had a chance to pay respects to him. So it was a combination of having his friends involved and kicking off the foundation.

Q. What is the Ron Asheton Foundation and who will it benefit?

A. The foundation is primarily for animals and musicians, Ronnie’s two biggest passions. It was also to continue his legacy, to keep his life going, to keep things going that he cared about. He did a lot of donation work to the Humane Societies, so that will be primarily our function. But we’re kind of the little guy; we’re obviously not a humane society but we’ll kind of pick up the slack as well as working with some of the societies and shelters. We have a dog adoption plan that we will put in effect, plus we’ll be awarding scholarships to help the music community — scholarships to music programs in schools, supplementing instruments, things like that.'


It's easy to make a donation to the Foundation in tribute to Ron at http://www.ronashetonfoundation.org/donate-now/
