It’s the Wrestlemania of summertime! That’s right, it’s time for WWE SummerSlam coming up next month (August), but first, there’s a very important event going on the Thursday before.
WWE, Barclays Center and iHeartMedia have announced that there will be a SummerSlam concert, the first WWE has ever done with SummerSlam, and it will take place on Thursday, August 18th at 7pm ET at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. The special thing about this SummerSlam concert, isn’t just the concert itself, but that proceeds from ticket sales will be benefiting Connor’s Cure!
This first ever WWE SummerSlam Concert will be headlined by Flo Rida and Jason Derulo. As well as feature performances by Daya and Jordan Hollywood. There will also be special appearances by your favorite WWE Superstars. Tickets will go on sale THIS FRIDAY, July 29th, at 12 pm ET via Ticketmaster.com.
Connor’s Cure was created by Stephanie McMahon and Paul Lavesque as a fund to help the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburg Foundation that supports pediactric brain and spinal cord cancer research. It was created in honor of an 8 year old WWE fan, Connor Michalek who was a patient at the time and battled with a rare tumor that affected both his brain and spinal cord. You can learn more about Connor’s Cure here. This past year, WWE and The V Foundation partnered up to expend Connor’s Cure outside of just the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburg Foundation and now supports pediatric cancer research nationally.
The WWE SummerSlam Concert is just ONE of many things going on during WWE’s week long fan centered events before SummerSlam on Sunday, Aug. 21 at 7pm ET at the SOLD-OUT Barclays Center as well as live on WWE Network.
