Bad Wolves delivered more than music during their sold-out show at Gramercy Theatre in NYC on Tuesday night. The heavy metal band from LA gifted a $250,000 donation to the family of the late Dolores O’Riordan, front woman for The Cranberries, onstage right before performing their version of the band’s hit song “Zombie.”
The donation was accepted at the show by her sons Donny Jr. and Taylor Burton, along with their father Don Burton, on behalf of all of O’Riordan’s children.
O’Riordan died this year in London on the day she planned to record her vocals for the Bald Wolves cover track. However, following the rock star’s death, the band chose to release the track nonetheless, with plans to donate all the proceeds, amounting to $250,000, to O’Riordan’s four children.
Bad Wolves frontman Tommy Vext said: “Our sadness the day Dolores passed was nothing compared to that of her children and her family. In light of the tragedy, donating our proceeds to her children was the only thing that made sense.” Vext also commented on the significance of the success of their cover, stating, “The kids who are hearing this song through Bad Wolves for the first time — it’s a true testament to the timelessness of their mother’s songwriting that will live on forever, and we are so grateful to be able to do this for them.” (Source: Billboard)
