Aussie rockers The Living End have announced a one-off charity concert for a New South Wales animal shelter run by their manager, Rae Harvey.
The benefit show will take place in the band’s hometown of Melbourne on Saturday, 28th October, and all funds raised will go towards replacing a house which was destroyed by fire at the Wild 2 Free Animal Sanctuary last year. The proceeds will allow orphaned kangaroos to shack up at a temporary location during the rebuild.
“Rae Harvey has managed The Living End for 20 years and aside from being a great manager and friend, she’s also been incredibly passionate about the wellbeing and protection of animals,” says the band’s Chris Cheney.
“When her dream of opening up an animal shelter literally went up in flames a year ago naturally we wanted to help. The funds from this gig will go directly towards setting up Wild 2 Free.”
“This benefit will go a long way towards helping us help more animals sooner,” says Harvey.
“I’m blown away that not only the bands have generously donated their time, but also the crew, poster artist, publicist, booking agent, ticketing company and venue – thank you all for helping us help them.”
Supporting The Living End’s benefit show will be Aussie ska outfit Area-7. See below for venue and ticket details.
