Bushfire benefit concert postponed due to weather

BUSHFIRE benefit concert Band Together planned for this Saturday has been postponed to Saturday, April 13 due to the threat of Tropical Cyclone Oma and associated high tides, strong winds and rainfall.

Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said while it was unfortunate that we've had to reschedule the events, the community's safety is our top priority.

He said all other details for the event would remain the same, with Adam Harvey, Beautifully Broken 1770 and Kissing the Flint all able to perform at the later date.

"We've spoken with Adam Harvey today and he is very excited to band together with our community and said he'll see us in six weeks," Cr Burnett said.

The event will be held at Wartburg Sport and Recreation Grounds on April 13 from 5.30pm - 9pm.

"All of the event details for the bushfire benefit concert will remain the same, with Adam Harvey still headlining and local bands Beautifully Broken 1770 and Kissing the Flint supporting," Councillor Burnett said.
