‘N Sync will perform a largely free concert Nov. 11 on Miami’s South Beach to benefit the families of the New York police officers and firemen killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the city. Corporate sponsors and the city of Miami Beach have covered most of the costs of the concert, and will donate proceeds from VIP ticket sales, merchandise, and concessions to the aforementioned cause.
Admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Approximately 2,000 VIP tickets will go on sale Saturday (Oct. 13) through Ticketmaster for $100 each, with a limit of two per person.
As previously reported, the group is confirmed to appear at the United We Stand benefit on Oct. 21 at Washington, D.C.’s RFK Stadium. ‘N Sync is also planning a Thanksgiving special for CBS, which may include footage from the Nov. 11 show.
‘N Sync’s latest Jive album, “Celebrity,” is No. 17 on The Billboard 200 in its 11th week on the chart. The single “Gone” is No. 42 on The Billboard Hot 100.
