Celine Dion, Arcade Fire to headline show for shooting victim
Celine Dion and Arcade Fire will headline a benefit concert in support of the young daughter of a man killed during Quebec's election-night shooting.
The show will take place this coming Monday at Metropolis, the St. Catherine street east club where Denis Blanchette was fatally shot on September 4.
The 48-year-old lighting technician was killed instantly when he was struck by a single bullet at the Parti Quebecois' election-night rally. Another worker, Dave Courage, was wounded by the same bullet.
Tickets for the concert range from $80 to $175, with the money going to a trust fund for Blanchette's daughter. Organizers say funds will also be collected for Dave Courage.
