'Aftermath: The Station Fire Five Years Later' Preview Clips Available Online

VH1Classic.com is launching "VH1 Classic Presents: Aftermath: The Station Fire Five Years Later" online on Thursday, March 20 giving viewers an early look at performances from the special airing on VH1 Classic and VH1 on Sunday, March 23 at 10:00 p.m.

"VH1 Classic Presents: Aftermath: The Station Fire Five Years Later" interweaves performances from the benefit concert hosted by Dee Snider, which took place on February 25 in Providence, Rhode Island, with on-camera stories from survivors, who share their first-hand experiences of what happened that night five years ago. Bret Michaels opens the documentary, taking the audience back to the site of the fire that now stands as a memorial.

The concert features TWISTED SISTER and TESLA, Aaron Lewis from STAIND, WINGER, and Eric Martin from MR. BIG. In addition, country music lends a hand to rock and roll with sets from John Rich (BIG & RICH) and Friends, featuring Gretchen Wilson and Dierks Bentley.

The Station Family Fund was founded by five survivors of the February 17, 2003 fire to provide financial support for medical treatment, rehabilitation and household expenses for survivors and their families and is understandably in continual need of financial replenishment. All of the proceeds from the concert ticket sales, charity auctions and direct donations to the fund go direct to the Station Family Fund, a non-profit 501 (3) charitable organization. To donate to the Station Family Fund and to find out more about their work, please visit: www.stationfamilyfund.org.
