A Sound Relief for those who missed out on the event!

July 28, 2009 by  

Sound ReliefOn March 14, in response to the tragic misfortune of the February 2009 Victorian Bushfires, Sound Relief took place in Melbourne and Sydney simultaneously, with artists and bands such as Kings of Leon, Paul Kelly, Hunters & Collectors, Midnight Oil, Coldplay, Jet and of course Wolfmother performed in either city.

Over $8 million was raised by the Sound Relief concerts, with the funds going to the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal ($7,159,760) and The Queensland Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal ($874,416).

But for those who missed tickets to Sound Relief, don’t fret because on October 2nd a 4-disc DVD compilation will be released with proceeds going to Red Cross.

Not much is known about the content of the DVDs as of yet other than every artist who performed in either city will be included on the disc, furthermore Sound Relief organiser Michael Gudinski has had this to say about the release “Some acts have their whole set on there, some just a few songs, but it’s all music. We didn’t want to clutter it up with interviews.”

Let’s just hope the entire Wolfmother set is included!

    Woo, my news story! ;)

    They should have just made the set more discs and included some interviews… but I guess they’d all be saying the same thing.

    Bring on WM’s entire set please.

    WOLFMOTHER RETURN TO THE UK FOR SUPER SPECIAL INTIMATE GIG

    It’s been too long, but Wolfmother are to come hurtling back into our hearts and heads next month with a super special, intimate show at the Lexington in London on August 12th. This will be your one and only chance to catch the band in such a small venue before they return later in the year for a full tour. A very limited number of tickets go on sale on Monday, August 3rd at 10am so you’ll need to be quicker than the speed of light to get hold of one of these golden tickets.
    Wolfmother come fresh off a jetplane, beholding a weighty behemoth of a 2nd record, Cosmic Egg, in their palms, and more ready than ever to tear open the minds of the masses and let their newfound magic and melody medicine swim within.
    This will be the first chance to hear the contents of their new wonderbeast, showcasing a mostly new suite of Wolfmother material, with a healthy handful of their marvelous self-titled debut thrown in. Not to be missed.
    Wednesday 12th August
    The Lexington, London
    Tickets £11 adv
