Take Action! Tickets On Sale, New Tour Dates Added
Tickets for the Hopeless/Sub City Records 2008 Take Action! Tour featuring headliner Every Time I Die, as well as From First To Last, The Bled, August Burns Red, and The Human Abstract are on sale now. An exclusive internet-only pre-sale that began December 10 is now over and tickets for the nationwide tour are now available at all the usual ticket outlets.
The tour, now in its seventh year, will benefit non-profit organization Do Something, a group that gives young people the opportunity to personally help change the world. Putting their money where their mouth is, Do Something distributes weekly $500 grants to young people with an idea about how to make a difference in their community. In 2007 alone, the site issued over $240,000 to young people who are making change in communities across the globe. Last year Do Something reached over 10 million young people, age 25 and under, and helped them take action.
In addition to Hot Topic, additional generous sponsors and partners of the 2008 tour are: producer Live Nation, MySpace.com, PureVolume.com, Guitar Center, Alternative Press, AbsolutePunk.net, Etnies, and Fanscape.
In 1999 Hopeless Records formally started supporting non-profit organizations through their Sub City imprint and Take Action! initiatives. Since then the label has released over 30 charitable titles and donated over 1 million dollars to various non-profit organizations including over $450,000 through Take Action. The tour has previously featured many future stars including: The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Jimmy Eat World, Avenged Sevenfold, Hawthorne Heights, Chiodos, Thrice, Anti-Flag, Silverstein, Dillinger Escape Plan, and many more. Take Action! 2008 will benefit Do Something by donating 10% of all ticket sales and 5% of the suggested retail price for each Take Action! Volume 7 compilation sold.
