After the tragic events in Samoa last week, a group of top New Zealand entertainers have rallied together for a massive benefit concert on Monday 19th October 2009 at the Vector Arena in Auckland.
When the Tsunami hit Samoa last week, it personally affected Scribe and Savage who lost their family villages and family members in the disaster. Along with Dawn Raid, Oscar Kightley and Ole Maiava, they rapidly organized a dream line up of top NZ musicians who had no hesitation in donating their performances to this worthy cause.
All businesses, personnel and artists have given their services for free, therefore 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Samoa.
We urge all New Zealanders to support this event to aid our fellow citizens of Samoa.
Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin dates and line ups to be announced shortly.
