The Strokes in Support Congressional Candidate Kina Collins @ Metro
June 17 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm$170 – $200
WHAT: By now you should be aware of Metro‘s ability to pull of fantastic, never-thought-I’d-ever see-it-again kinds of shows (last year’s iconic Metallica show springs to mind). Well it’s time for another one!
SO WHAT: Metro just announced that they will be hosting Grammy Award winning and truly sensational rock band The Strokes, who will be playing a concert fundraiser and rally on June 17, 2022 in support of Kina Collins, gun violence prevention advocate and Democratic candidate for Congress in IL-07. This is a rare perfomance as it has been 20 years since The Strokes vistied the Metro stage! “Kina Collins has lived the challenges on the ground in IL-7 and she’s exactly the kind of non-corporate, good-hearted, progressive-minded leader the world needs in these corrupt times,” said lead singer and songwriter of The Strokes, Julian Casablancas. “In a system dominated by super-pacs and profit-fueled political machines, Kina is rejecting all that, and choosing to fight for people’s actual needs and desires.”
NOW WHAT: Tickets are $170 for regular entry and $200 for early entry. All tickets include an event poster. This show will be 18+.
