The club where 'DIMEBAG' DARRELL ABBOTT was killed is to hold a memorial benefit concert to raise money for the families of the shooting victims.

ALROSA VILLA in Columbus, Ohio, will fully re-open on 14 January (05) to hold a tribute in aid of the families of 'DIMEBAG' and the three others shot dead by gunman Nathan Gale during a DAMAGEPLAN concert on 8 December (04).

The venue's owner RICK CAUTELA says, "We know it's not right to open the Alrosa without having a benefit first.

"I'm not sure what's going to happen for the future. One minute I think the Alrosa has a future, the next minute I don't feel comfortable about it."
