DENVER — Two benefit concerts by Lotus to honor the lives of band member Chuck Morris and his son Charley who died while kayaking in Arkansas will be livestreamed.
Lotus announced Friday that it will partner with nugs.net to livestream both nights of the Morris Family Benefit concerts from the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver. They're set to take place on April 21 and 22.
The shows aim to unite the Lotus community as they celebrate the lives of Chuck and Charley Morris. They went missing March 16 while they were kayaking on Beaver Lake in Arkansas. On April 9, the Benton County Sheriff's Office said their bodies have been recovered.
Livestream tickets are on sale now at nugs.net/lotus, with 100% of the net proceeds donated to the Morris Family.
Both Denver shows will feature special guest musicians that are friends, former band members and close collaborators of Lotus and Chuck.
