STAIND's AARON LEWIS Playing Benefit For Alma Mater

Launch Radio Networks reports: STAIND frontman Aaron Lewis will return to his hometown of Longmeadow, Massachusetts on November 4 for a concert to raise money for the Longmeadow High School creative arts department. All proceeds will go directly to the school to support its art and music curriculums. Lewis said in a statement, "I'm honored to return to my alma mater to support its arts and music program. Music education in schools is a vitally important cause, and I am very happy to support it, especially in my hometown."

The show will take place at the high school. VIP tickets are going for $100 and include a meet-and-greet with Lewis. Standard tickets are $60 in advance and $75 at the door.

STAIND will release both a greatest hits collection, called "The Singles: 1996-2006", and a DVD compilation, called "Staind: The Videos", on November 14. The CD will include never-before-released live acoustic versions of PINK FLOYD's "Comfortably Numb", ALICE IN CHAINS' "Nutshell", and TOOL's "Sober", recorded at a recent New York performance.

The band will play a few live shows in support of the new releases. Confirmed dates are:
