‘ In view of the Tsunami, LBG wishes to do its little bit in conjunction with reputed venues as a part of a collective social responsibility effort. LBG hopes to partner with other bands for the other venues and do whatever it can in the true spirit of Rock ‘n Roll.

he concerts are for relief, which does not mean that it is only for tsunami relief but all kinds of relief. LBG being a part of the Chennai populace is aware that though a majority of the population was not directly affected, but everyone has suffered psychologically and emotionally to various extents. The aim of these concerts is also to help heal these scars and to tell people that everyone should be strong and that life has to go on... '

The response was immense and people flocked in to contribute and listen to the Music. The Show was a free Show, but everyone generously donated money in to a donation box which was being passed around during the show. Since it was an open show and was held right in front of the theater, there were people who were buying tickets, waiting for their Movie show , People who had finished watching their movie & people passing by in their vehicles, all stopping to watch the show till the very end. There was a major traffic jam…. But the Cops couldn’t do anything cause the Cineplex was well connected with the government!! And the show Rocked!!
