After Sunday night's horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas, Kings of Leon is stepping up.

The rock band pledged to donate the proceeds from their Friday night show at Las Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel & Casino show to Music City Cares, the city of Nashville's fund to provide support to the Harvest Country Music Festival shooting victims, families and first responders.

“Following the horrific events of this past weekend in Las Vegas, which have touched so many here and beyond, including members of our own Hard Rock Las Vegas family, we are honored to help the victims, their families and first responders for their heroic efforts,” Hard Rock Las Vegas' COO Jody Lake said in a statement.

Ticket information can be found at axs.com.

Following last week's tragedy, where a gunman shot and killed 59 people at a country music festival, injuring more than 500 more, the music community at large has banded together to provide much needed support to all those affected.

On Tuesday, Celine Dion teared up while resuming her Las Vegas residency shows, which she dedicate to the victims and families.
