Suspenders Worn by Jeremiah Fraites on Tour with U2
This item is STAGE WORN SUSPENDERS belonging to Jeremiah Fraites, drummer, pianist and co-founding band member of The Lumineers.
Jeremiah’s wardrobe selection of wearing a fedora and suspenders on stage have become an iconic staple for the musician throughout his career. The Lumineers went on tour with U2, opening their shows from May to June 2017 for the band’s 30th Anniversary Joshua Tree Tour.
"I remember playing U2's song "One" in New York bars 10 years ago with Jer on the drums. A lot has changed since then but I still never would have imagined that we'd be opening for such a legendary band to mark such a legendary album, The Joshua Tree. Their songs are so timeless and significant, you ca't imagine a time when they didn't exist. That sort of song writing has alway been an inspiration for us, songs that cross generations". - Wesley Schultz
The Lumineers were formed in 2005 by guitarist and singer, Wesley Schultz, and pianist and drummer, Jeremiah Fraites. Wesley and Jermiah both grew up in Ramsey, NJ and started writing music together after a mutual tragedy formed a lifelong bond between them.
The Lumineers have released three chart-topping studio albums: The Lumineers in 2012, Cleopatra in 2016 and III in 2019. They have performed in stadiums, arenas and theaters around the world.
When a child becomes ill, the family balance is inevitably affected: everyday life involving mum, dad, siblings and grandparents changes. The Onco-Hematological illness will take over and for some time distort the life of the child or adolescent, filling it with therapy and hospitalizations.
In these moments, the whole family must be helped to face difficulties that require great courage and heavy sacrifice.
The UGI volunteers have been assisting with this disease for over 40 years by accompanying young patients and their parents to provide as much support as possible. The organization is present during hospitalization, it provides financial aid when needed, it contributes to scientific research and the treatment of pediatric cancers, as well as offering free accommodation at "Casa UGI" to those who come from outside the city of Turin and need to stay near the hospital. In addition, with the launch of UGIDUE in 2020, the organization offers patients who come out of therapy and their families a dedicated space to recover psychological and social tools needed for the return to normal daily life, accompanied, where necessary, by psychomotor rehabilitation courses in the UGIDUE gym.
Childhood cancer requires a real show of collective commitment.
If we put our heart into it, together we can win. It's a blue heart of hope.
