An event paying tribute to Stan Lee, the Marvel Comics legend who co-created characters like Spider-Man, the X-Men, and Doctor Strange, has been announced and will take place in Los Angeles in August.
Here are the details:
Heavyweights of the comic book world and the elite of the entertainment industry will gather together on August 22nd at the Saban Theatre in Los Angeles for a once-in-a-lifetime tribute to the world’s most iconic creator, Stan Lee. Unlike career-focused tributes, Extraordinary: Stan Lee will take a nostalgic and sentimental look at the life of this icon through a wide-angle lens in the vein of “This Is Your Life”.
Celebrity guests will be on hand to give thanks
“Back when I started writing, I never could have dreamed that someday these little characters I thought up would connect with so many people in so many places, let alone on the silver screen...I’m just floored,” said Mr. Lee. “I’m so lucky to have such great friends and supportive fans who continue to inspire me and have kept me going.”
Tickets for Extraordinary: Stan Lee live at the Saban Theatre (1,800 seats) will be available beginning at 10:00 AM this morning through Ticketmaster starting at $95.00 for general seats to $350.00 for VIP seats and meet & greet. The ceremony will also be streamed live to movie theater venues across the country (tickets will go on sale in July), allowing real-time access for fans outside of Los Angeles to share this truly extraordinary experience. In-Theater Live and Agents of Mayhem are producing the tribute event in partnership with Stan Lee Collectibles.
To give fans another opportunity to attend this memorable evening while supporting a great cause, Stan has partnered with the online fundraising platform Omaze to offer fans the ultimate Extraordinary: Stan Lee experience. Starting July 11, fans can visit Omaze.com and donate as little as $10 to enter for the chance to be flown out to Los Angeles, get put up in a four-star hotel and enjoy two front-row seats at the tribute. To complete the VIP experience, the winner and his or her guest will also have the chance to talk all things Marvel with Stan in a private meet-and-greet, as well as attend the exclusive VIP after party. Proceeds raised from the campaign will support Make-A-Wish® to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
