After cryptic teasing us on social media over the past week, Australia’s much loved rockers Powderfinger are set to reform for one night only via YouTube to raise some much needed funds for Support Act and Beyond Blue!
The event will take place on May 23rd and will be exclusive to YouTube as the band said in a statement:
G’day Folks, we know we’ve been quiet but we hope this news makes you smile. Powderfinger are getting back together for one night only to give you an exclusive YouTube performance straight from our home studios to your living room titled One Night Lonely. So let’s come together for a good cause to raise funds for Support Act and Beyond Blue. Put it in your diaries people and sign up on the Powderfinger website to find out how to watch! powderfinger.com
Turns out the plan to get back together again has been going for a little bit now:
“The five of us have been meeting regularly over the past few months to organise some Odyssey Number 5 anniversary releases. The idea came up of playing together again in this unusual format which we all thought would be fun. The past few months has been a very strange time for us all and difficult days for many. We really just want to bring a smile to some people’s faces and along the way raise some funds to help our music industry mates and people who are currently experiencing mental health issues”
Bernard Fanning, Darren Middleton, Ian Haug, Jon Coghill and John ‘JC’ Collins aka Powderfinger will be back in our lives sooner than you think!
