TUPELO – The city of Tupelo is hosting Band Together, a benefit concert for those affected by the April 28 tornado.

The concert will be at 5:30 p.m. June 5, the same day the Tupelo Elvis Festival begins, at Fairpark.

A lineup will be announced next week, and it’s a diverse one, said Jessica Hollinger with the Downtown Main Street Association.

“We have some regional names and some local names,” she said.

The concert will be free, with donations accepted. Those donations will go through CREATE’s disaster relief fund.

The concert is being planned by folks who’ve brought Down on Main, the Mustache Bash and other events to Tupelo, Hollinger said.
