A benefit concert for gender equality and access to sexual and reproductive health care that was scheduled to be held at New York City’s Town Hall on March 14 has been postponed due to current public health concerns triggered by the coronavirus outbreak.
The “Bans Off My Body” concert, jointly organized by Planned Parenthood and The Feminist Institute, was slated to feature a reunion performance by Hole‘s Courtney Love and Melissa Auf der Maur.
The show was also set to include a performance by Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell and his wife, Etty Lau Farrell.
“We are deeply committed to the values represented by Planned Parenthood’s Bans Off My Body campaign and grateful to Courtney Love, Melissa Auf der Maur, Perry and Etty Farrell, BETTY, Rachael Yamagata, Joan As Police Woman, Jesse Paris Smith & Rebecca Foon, and Mx Justin Vivian Bond, as well as Executive Producer Lawrence B. Benenson, Producer Hal Willner and Town Hall for supporting our efforts,” Feminist Institute President Kathleen Landy said in a statement.
She added that the teams have already begun work on rescheduling the event. Tickets purchased will be honored at the rescheduled date, or refunds will be honored at point of purchase, according to Landy.
