100 per cent of income from ticket sales will be donated to both the Queensland Premier’s Disaster Relief Fund and The Australian Red Cross to help support communities affected by disasters in Australia, New Zealand and Japan. As a frequent visitor to Australia, New Zealand and Japan, Geldof expressed his commitment to supporting these communities with their rebuild efforts after the recent spate of natural disasters.
“To see the extent to which people’s lives have been devastated is heart-wrenching,” said Sir Bob. “I have experienced the generosity and compassion of the people of Australia, New Zealand and Japan first hand, so it’s quite humbling to be invited to lead the Rock and Rebuild effort, and give some support to those nations.”
“Long after the cameras shift their focus the people will still be rebuilding their lives. It’s important that we keep them in our minds and continue to lend a hand,” said Sir Bob.
Tickets for the unique charity event Rock and Rebuild are $150 each and can be purchased from Ticketmaster – www.ticketmaster.com.au.
