Three Days Grace Announce ‘Three Days of Giving’ Hometown Shows
Tis the season to give back, and Three Days Grace will be doing so on three consecutive nights in their hometown of Peterborough, Ontario next month. The group has revealed a series of shows, promoted as "Three Days of Giving," with all the proceeds going to a different charity each night.
The shows are scheduled for Dec. 11, 12, and 13 at The Venue in Peterborough and will mark the band's first hometown performances in five years. The opening night show, Dec. 11, will help out The James Fund, the largest umbrella organization for neuroblastoma families in Canada, with outreach programs into the U.S. and other countries.
Just last month, bassist Brad Walst took part in The James Fund's walk-run fundraiser for neuroblastoma research. His son was diagnosed with having a cancerous neuroblastome tumor several years ago, but the rocker revealed that his son has been one of the lucky ones with the tumor stabilizing. So Walst, in particular, has a very close attachment to the organization they're supporting. Fans can learn more about The James Fund here. Tickets for the Dec. 11 show may be purchased here.
The second night, Dec. 12, will aid Road Recovery, an organization that helps young people battle addiction issues and other adversities by harnessing the influence of entertainment industry professionals that have confronted similar issues.

The third and final night, Dec. 13, will benefit The Herbie Fund, an organization that brings children from around the world to The Hospital for Sick Children for life-saving or life-altering surgeries that may not be available in their home countries due to high costs or the lack of medical expertise.

My Darkest Days, who feature Brad Walst's brother Matt as their vocalist, will open all three shows.
