In ongoing efforts to provide relief assistance to citizens in Puerto Rico facing devastation from Hurricane Irma and Maria, Pretty Lights Live will be streaming the PL sets for free on December 28-29 at The Fillmore in Detroit, MI (10:15pm ET) and on December 31 at The Fillmore in Philadelphia, PA (10:05pm ET) on the Pretty Lights Facebook page and the Pretty Lights YouTube Channel. A "donate" option will be available on each platform to contribute monetary donations to United for Puerto Rico. All donations from the streams will go directly to United for Puerto Rico to assist with hurricane relief efforts. $1 from all ticket sales in Detroit and Philadelphia will go to United for Puerto Rico (via Plus 1).
Pretty Lights Live ran a similar campaign earlier this fall for their September 29-30 Whitewater Amphitheater performance in New Braunfels, TX. That campaign generated an estimated $55,238 in contributions from live stream donations and $1 from each ticket sale went to assist Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts.
