MONTREAL — Celine Dion and Arcade Fire will headline a benefit concert in support of the young daughter of a man killed during Quebec’s election-night shooting.

The show will take place this coming Monday at the Metropolis — the club where Denis Blanchette was fatally shot on Sept. 4.

The 48-year-old lighting technician was killed instantly when he was struck by a single bullet at the Parti Quebecois’ election-night rally. Another worker was wounded by the same bullet.

Tickets for the concert range from $80 to $175, with the money going to a trust fund for Blanchette’s daughter. Organizers say funds will also be collected for Dave Courage, the other man hit by the bullet.
