Roger Waters Stand Up For Heroes 2012
Roger Waters is set to join John Mayer and Bruce Springsteen amongst others for a charity concert in New York in aid of Stand Up for Heroes.
The event, held at New York’s Beacon Theatre on Thursday 8th November 2012 at 8pm, is to raise money to help soldiers and their families that have been injured by war. The charity has generated over $10m to date.
Don’t Miss The Youtube Broadcast!
The event will be broadcast by YouTube around the world on 8th November so stay tuned for that. There will be more info soon on remind.org and you can get a reminder from our free newsletter too so you don’t forget!
This year’s event, which is the 6th annual event, will also feature Mike Birbiglia, Ricky Gervais, Patton Oswalt, Jon Stewart, and Robin Williams. The band is made up of military veterans who Roger and the others will be performing with. This is certainly an excellent opportunity and I am sure the veterans will have a great time being involved in such a fantastic live music event!
Bob Woodruff, co-founder of the Bob Woodruff Foundation who are putting on the event said, “We look forward to this event all year, because we are always honoured when we get to meet the inspirational men and women who have served our country so heroically. In addition, we are amazed at the calibre of talent we are able to pull in for the benefit. These performers simply want to help give back to the men and women who have sacrificed so much. We hope that the social media component, new this year, will enable more people to enjoy the show—and will raise even more awareness for the cause that lies behind it.”
Roger Waters 2013 Tour
Roger Waters has stated in interviews this year that he will be performing in 2013 in Europe. At least one reliable source, a primary market ticketing website, has started the promotional activity around the tour. There will seemingly be at least three concerts in Germany and I am sure there will be lots of other concerts around Europe although this is not confirmed yet. The German Roger Waters 2013 Tour will happen in East, West and Rhine-Main areas.
The pre-sale registrations, according to Eventim, will start from 14th November 2012 so make sure you are registered over there and get a reminder from our free newsletter too!
