LAS VEGAS — Imagine Dragons and The Killers will pay tribute to the victims of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history when they headline a concert Friday in Las Vegas.

The concert at T-Mobile Arena will benefit the victims of the Oct. 1 shooting.

Image Dragons frontman and Las Vegas native Dan Reynolds says the concert shows that the community will not let the “senseless behavior” of a person “stop people gathering and enjoying life and entertainment.”

A high-stakes gambler killed 58 people and injured hundreds more after shattering the windows of his hotel suite and unleashing gunfire on a music festival below before killing himself.

The trio Boyz II Men, magician David Copperfield, magic duo Penn and Teller and Cirque du Soleil performers will also participate in the concert.
