Raising Up A Burning Country: Raise ‘Em Up Benefit Gig

Raising Up A Burning Country: Raise ‘Em Up Benefit Gig
Auran Abraham

Australia is currently burning, and The Tivoli is hosting a benefit gig to counter the damage done by this ongoing disaster.

Brisbane’s The Tivoli will be hosting an all-star Raise ‘Em Up benefit gig this January for Bushfire relief. Featuring Megan Washington, Matt Corby, and The Kite String Tangle, along with Asha Jefferies, Ngaiire and The Riot will be performing for a very special one-night-only event which aims to raise $100,000 to aid with Australian bushfire relief.

All of the artists performing will be offering their time and talents to help combat the fires that are still raging all around Australia and have destroyed more than 1500 homes and 10 million hectares of land. The fires have also had a major detrimental effect on an enormous number of native animals and an immense ecological impact on Australia’s wildlife.

The Tivoli’s Co-Owner and Creative Director Dave Sleswick announced all ticket, bar and merchandise profits from the evening will be shared between the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal (70%) and WIRES – The NSW Wildlife Information Rescue & Emergency Services (30%).

Tickets went live to the event on January 9 and range from $50-$200 allowing flexibility for purchasers to donate what they can.

Dave Sleswick said of the concert and the cause it aids “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.”

“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.”

Award-winning artist Megan Washington who will perform at the Raise ‘Em Up benefit said in-kind “This is a tragic moment in history when all Australians need to come together and try to help each other wherever we can.”

This event will be for one night only, is for an amazing cause, and supports all those that truly need the support now more than ever, purchase tickets now and dig deep to help Australia heal. Tickets Available Now.
