Bernard Fanning To Headline Youngcare 10th Anniversary Celebrations

Celebrated singer-songwriter Bernard Fanning has announced he will be headlining a special live event for the tenth anniversary of national charity Youngcare at Brisbanes iconoic City Hall on Saturday, October 10.

The Youngcare Benefit Concert will also feature highly acclaimed Melbourne outfit #1 Dads and emerging Brisbane band Mosman Alder.

Fanning, who recently returned home from a successful tour of Europe, said he was honoured to be invited to curate the Youngcare Benefit Concert, which in the past four years has raised over $650 000 for young Aussies with high care needs.

“The first concert that we did at City Hall in 2006 holds some incredible memories for me,” Fanning said.

“It was an atmosphere like no other I have experienced as a performer. I can’t wait to be a part of it again. It’s an iconic venue that rarely hosts concerts such as these.”

Fanning hinted at a special surprise guest for the event, and promised great entertainment for a good cause.

Brisbane six-piece Mosman Alder said they are excited for the opportunity to contribute to the concert.

“We are delighted to find ourselves in a position to contribute as a band to such a worthy cause, and what a privilege to be sharing the stage with artists of such a high calibre,” the band said.

Youngcare CEO Samantha Kennerley said that Youngcare is extremely grateful for Fanning’s long time support. Over the past ten years, Fanning has been involved with the charity and helped to highlight the issues faced by young Aussies with high care needs.

“Bernard is a tireless champion for young people with high care needs,” Kennerley said.

“We are enormously thankful to all the musicians who give their time and talent.”

“Every dollar raised by this concert helps give more young people with high care needs voice, choice and control over their own lives.”
