Sons of the Silent Age, a David Bowie tribute band, performed to a sold out crowd on Saturday, Jan. 11, at Metro Chicago. They were joined by special guest, actor Michael Shannon.

The event raised more than $65,000 for integrative medicine therapies for NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) Kellogg Cancer Center adult and pediatric patients.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Sons of the Silent Age is composed of nine Chicago musicians, when Chris Connelly (Revolting Cocks, Ministry) and Matt Walker (Filter, Smashing Pumpkins and Morrissey's band) joined forces in 2012 to pay tribute to their hero David Bowie.

For the third year, the concert is benefitting the NorthShore Integrative Medicine program, as one of the largest and most-well established programs in the country.

Each of the parties involved in the benefit concert -- from the Sons of the Silent Age bandmates, to the owner of Metro, to the NorthShore Integrative Medicine team -- share a common bond of commitment to the cause, and for some, cancer survivorship.

NorthShore's Integrative Medicine Program uses safe, evidence-based complementary therapies and communicating fully with patients' traditional western medicine physicians and specialists optimizes each patient's health and a heightened sense of well-being.
