Old Dominion set aside two dollars from every ticket to their sold-out Chicago area show on Tuesday night (March 1), resulting in a $4600 donation to ACM Lifting Lives.
Known for their No. 1 hit, “Break Up With Him,” Old Dominion became the first band to sell out the new venue, Joe’s Live, in Rosemont, Illinois. Ed Warm, co-owner of famed venue Joe’s on Weed Street, is a partner in the new club, which was formerly Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill.
“Music has the power to heal, motivate, empower, unite, and improve lives, and tonight, all those things converge,” said Old Dominion’s Matthew Ramsey told the fans. “Chicago fans have supported us from the first time we played Joe’s on Weed in March 2014; I think I even recognize a few of you from that first night. We cannot thank you enough for helping us get to this point in our careers.”
“We are thrilled for another amazing year of support from venues across the country, artists and the industry to enable Lifting Lives to continue our mission of improving lives through the power of music,” said ACM Lifting Lives President Ed Warm, who owns Joe’s Live and conceptualized the ACM Lifting Lives fundraising effort in 2011.
