MECHANIC FALLS, Maine (AP) - The lead singer of a band whose pyrotechnics caused a fire that killed 100 people in Rhode Island is performing in New England for the first time since the blaze.

Jack Russell’s Great White is performing Aug. 15 at Harvest Hills Farm in Maine, which suffered a tragedy of its own during a fatal hayride accident last October.

Russell was the lead singer for Great White in 2003 when the fire broke out at The Station night club in West Warwick, Rhode Island.

Pyrotechnics ignited soundproofing foam on the club’s ceiling and walls, causing a fire that killed 100 people.

Stan Miller, CEO of North East Concerts, which is promoting the show, told the Sun Journal (https://bit.ly/1JLd53O) that the event provides an opportunity for healing.
