A benefit gig in honour of beloved music industry figure and ex-You Am I manager, Kate Stewart, is moving to a new venue due to a high demand for tickets.
The concert, which will feature sets from acts like You Am I, Bernard Fanning, Phil Jamieson and Paul Dempsey, has been upgraded to Sydney’s iconic Enmore Theatre and will take place on Friday 15 March. Existing Factory Theatre tickets remain valid for the show.
All proceeds made from the show will go towards Stewart, who suffered a severe stroke last September. Details regarding donations and an auction are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
“[Stewart] was the first person to give us a chance, and the last person out of the venue for hundreds, maybe thousands of shows,” You Am I said.
“Though we parted ways a while back we remain dear friends, as again, she has given us chances when we maybe didn’t deserve them. Now she needs some help (she never asked for it. Never would.)
“So, we are putting on a show with some wags who also wanna give a little something back to the woman who gave us everything. More to be announced but dig in to this with us lot. And to the folks who will suggest calling the night ‘Something For Kate’ well, yes, it is. But we believe there is a music group of the same nomenclature. And we don’t wanna ruffle their plumage.”
