FISHER announces huge bushfire appeal party this Sunday
After taking to social media earlier to advise fans he was hard at work planning something to help raise funds for the Australian bushfire crisis, FISHER has now announced a massive show this Sunday in Sydney.
Set to take to ivy for a one off massive show, ‘FISHER & Friends‘ will be raising money and donating 100% of proceeds from door sales and the bar to the RFS, Red Cross and local bushfire charities. FISHER took to Facebook to announce the show, saying in a video he’ll be playing a five hour set and will also be joined by Little Fritter and Rich Penny.
On Sunday, FISHER helped get the word out about relief efforts in another video talking directly to fans. “I just want to thank the firefighters and volunteers for all the work they’ve been doing, you guys are absolute legends,” he said before revealing he was putting tickets on sale earlier than planned to his tour later this year and would be donating a percentage from each ticket sold. It was also in this video that FISHER advised he was coming home and was planning a show.
Tickets are $50 and are on sale now, for more info head here. In a press release accompanying the announcement, a statement read “This summer’s tragic bushfires have ravaged the country and affected us all. Over the last few months Australians have come together to support their communities like never before, but the danger isn’t over yet. The heroes at NSW Rural Fire Service and Australian Red Cross need our help to get through a long hot summer.”
