Calvin Harris donates fee from Las Vegas show to shooting victims

Calvin Harris has donated proceeds from his Friday night (13Oct17) club show in Las Vegas to the victims of the city's recent mass shooting.

Earlier this month (Oct17), gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire on crowds at the Route 91 Harvest music festival, killing 58 people and injuring more than 500.

Over the weekend (14-15Oct17), the Scottish DJ announced the money from his gig at Omnia nightclub would go to the Las Vegas Victims Fund, although he did not disclose the exact sum donated.

"The city of Las Vegas has given me so much I donated last nights (sic) Omnia fee to the Las Vegas victims fund in the hope it will help rebuild the lives of the victims families and those injured two weeks ago," he wrote on Instagram. "Life is so unbelievably precious. Please be the most life loving version of yourself you can be. Go outside. Get off your phone. Engage with the world around you. Love God bless."

Harris' announcement comes almost a week after DJs Tiesto, Zedd, Kaskade, and Steve Aoki revealed they are going to play a benefit concert at the nightclub on 7 November (17).

Dutch DJ Tiesto, real name Tijs Michiel Verwest, has also donated $200,000 to a GoFundMe campaign launched by venue bosses. All proceeds from the club night, where Lil Jon and NGHTMRE will also perform, and the GoFundMe campaign will be donated to the Las Vegas Victims Fund.
