Original GREAT WHITE Lineup Performs At Harp Seals Benefit Concert; Photos Available

The original lineup of GREAT WHITE headlined the January 27 charity show in Los Angeles to raise money to save harp seals. The concert, which took place at the Key Club, also featured former WARRANT singer Jani Lane with special guests JAK PARIS and award-winning singer/songwriter BOB GENTRY. Proceeds from the show will be used to oppose the largest slaughter of marine mammals on the planet and to raise funds and awareness to end the horrific and bizarre annual massacre.

This year in Canada over 335,000 defenseless Canadian baby seals were brutally clubbed or shot to death for their pelts, their bodies left on the ice to rot. Over 42% are horrifically skinned alive. The goal in planning a benefit concert is to first raise funds to help HarpSeals.org continue their efforts to rescue the baby harp seals in Canada.

Last year Paul and Heather McCartney brought media attention and made international headlines after they visited the seals in Canada and spoke up on the Larry King show about this needless brutality.

GREAT WHITE is planning a 25th anniversary reunion tour with its original lineup but no other dates have been booked. The band's manager Obi Steinman recently told the Boston Herald the band has 11 songs written and that the original members plan to begin recording next month for a new album.
