Brisbane’s The Tivoli will host an all-star benefit gig to raise funds for Australian Bushfire Relief.
Scheduled for Saturday, 25 January 2020 and titled ‘Raise ‘Em Up’, the event will include big names like Megan Washington, Matt Corby and The Kite String Tangle among the line-up.
The Tivoli’s Co-Owner and Creative Director, Dave Sleswick, announced today that all profits from the event (including tickets, bar and merchandise) will be donated and shared between the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal and WIRES – The NSW Wildlife Information Rescue and Emergency Services.
“Both WIRES and the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal are hugely worthy causes and we hope that throwing this ‘Raise ‘Em Up’ show provides people another way to support their critical work,” Sleswick said.
“In return, we promise a jam-packed evening of live music which will kick off from 5 pm with food trucks, a car park party and a great community raffle also taking place.”
Other stars among the act and also donating their time include Asha Jefferies, Ngaiire and The Riot. The worthy cause aims to provide support for the people affected by the fires, which destroyed more than 1500 homes and 10 million hectares of land.
Award-winning artist Megan Washington spoke of the gig and her hopes that people will dig deep.
“This is a tragic moment in history when all Australians need to come together and try to help each other wherever we can,” Washington said.
Tickets will be available for purchase from 9:00 AM AEST on Thursday, 9 January 2020 via Ticketmaster. A range of ticket prices are available, between $50-$200, for people to donate what they can. The event will be held at The Tivoli itself.
‘Raise ‘Em Up’ aims to “give a real helping hand to relieve those affected by the Australian bushfires”.
