Guns N’ Roses, getting set for their first ever show in Hawaii this coming weekend will donate a portion of the proceeds from the gig to charity. The December 8 show of the “Not In This Lifetime” will benefit will the Andy Irons Foundation (AIF). The charitable organization was created in honor of the late surfing legend by his widow Lyndie Irons to raise awareness and institute programs for young people pertaining to mental health, drug recovery, and learning disabilities.
Lyndie Irons commented:
“It is such an honor to partner with Guns N’ Roses for their first ever show in Hawaii. As Andy sought solace through music, my goal with the Andy Irons Foundation is to offer hope and vital programs for young people struggling with mental illness, drug abuse, and learning disabilities. I am truly grateful for such an amazing experience with one of Andy’s all-time favorite bands.”
Andy was a beloved member of the surf community and a passionate music fan. Andy and Lyndie’s son Axel, named in honor of Axl Rose, will be turning eight years old on the day of Guns N’ Roses December 8th show.
