Corey Taylor performed a secret show in L.A. for a crowd of only 12 people. The proceeds from the event went to Sweet Relief, which is an organization that helps musicians and crew members who have to deal with illness, disabilities or old-age issues.
The private show raised money for the charity via a raffle. All donors were then entered into a pool and were then randomly selected. A total of 5 winners were drawn and each winner could bring a guest. Then they had the grand prize winner, who could attend and bring a guest, but also won a brand new Epiphone Gibson guitar, signed by Taylor.
Though the show doesn’t have the same energy that one is used to having, the fact that Corey Taylor and his band were willing to get up there and play for these people and the proceeds go to charity, is truly amazing.
Taylor posted on Instagram saying, “Unbelievable feeling being back in front of a crowd, even if it was only 12 people! Last week’s socially distanced secret show in LA was a blast.
“We played live music again and raised money for @sweetreliefmusiciansfund. Thanks to everyone who donated and thanks to our winners who made it out for the special night.”
One of the attendees posted a video of Taylor performing Stone Sour’s “Bother”, which you can see below alongside a highlight reel of the night.
