    This is a really nice connection to see.  My son Ian had epilepsy.  He passed away June 6, 2017 after a severe seizure and cardiac arrest.

    Thankful to anyone who supports CURE.  As a fan, this is something that feels good to see.
    His eminence has yet to show.

    My father has epilepsy. It's been very unfortunate watching him get older and regress mentally. All because he was jumping on a bed and fell off when he was 8. 

    I'm thrilled to see Ed spreading his resources to cover yet another charitable cause.

    Miguel Cervantes is an excellent Hamilton. His Daughter has epilepsy and has been very involved in epilepsy charities since coming here summer of 16. Great cause, great entertainment.

    Thanks for the info, looks like an interesting event.
  • Really looking forward to this benefit... visit with some good friends in Chicago and be apart of a good cause.

    I was trying to figure out the Vedder relevance, lol.

    This is great though.  I lost my brother to Epilepsy and I can fully support this.

    I'm surprised that they capped it at $10k, but I guess without a pic of the guitar it's a gamble...

  • Might have to try and figure out a way into this.  Hard to say no when its like a block away, but a little tough financially.
  • tschavtschav Posts: 1,480
    Online ticket sales are closed... still debating if the bank can handle it.

    Three uke songs from Eddie doesn’t sound that exciting.
  • I emailed and they replied that it is officially sold out.  Curious how long the sets would be myself.

    It's a benefit. My hunch is that it will probably be just a few songs.

  • angry_skullangry_skull Posts: 214
    I bet it'll be 10 songs, live cut to vinyl. A track featuring Bryant and Rizzo and one with Michelle and Barack Obama. This will be epic.

    But seriously, whatever it ends up being, thanks for doing it Eddie.

    He is specifically listed as the headliner under other promo stuff for this event, so maybe not.

    I’m Just hoping for an eight song set at this point, can’t ask for much more and less would be kind of a letdown. I bet he’ll do RITFW with Nils.

    Dying to hear how this went! I'm home with the flu, and had to miss the benefit. I hope everyone is having a great time. Great cause and great lineup!
