With the continued stall on mass gatherings putting tours and festivals on hold, a massive and irreplaceable part of the music industry has been and continues to be horrifically impacted: touring support and live event crews. Founded by CHAD WARD, ROADIE RELIEF is working to bring the industry together to provide ongoing support to live event workers and so has organized, with 32auctions.com, to launch unique, music focused auctions! Their second auction, live now through April 14th, includes incredible donations from members of some of the biggest names in rock and metal, including KISS, FOO FIGHTERS, KORN, GHOST, BON JOVI, FAITH NO MORE, and many more.

Whether it was a tenebrous or a bright time in your life, we hope you look back at that point in your life and realize you made it through. Thank you for joining us on the road to Aurora, we have a long way to go.”
