Following the tragic passing of Johann Ofner on the set of Bliss n Eso’s ‘Friend Like You’ music clip, the band today announce a very special tribute show for next Friday 3 March. The charity concert will be held in Johann Ofner’s hometown region of the Gold Coast at the Coolangatta Hotel, with 100 per cent of all proceeds to be donated to a trust for Johann’s daughter. Tickets are on sale now from Oztix for $59.
The music industry has banded together in support, with the venue, suppliers and ticketing company all waiving their fees for the tribute show. A t-shirt exclusively designed for the cause will be on sale at the show with proceeds also going to the trust.
Bliss n Eso have also made the decision to delay the release of their forthcoming album Off The Grid to Friday 28 April 2017. The album was originally scheduled for release in early March.
While the band appreciates the album delay may cause some disappointment for fans, Bliss n Eso thank everyone for their continued support and understanding. Their recent sold out tour of Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane was an incredible reminder of how amazing their fans are.
“The past few weeks have been some of the toughest times we’ve ever been through both individually and as a band. It has been a constant rollercoaster of emotions and we really appreciate all the ongoing support from our friends, family and loyal fans. We continue to offer our support to the family and friends of Johann Ofner who tragically passed away on the set of our music video. We are thankful for his family’s blessing in allowing us to put on this tribute concert, to celebrate the life of this amazing man and loving father.”– Bliss n Eso
Bliss n Eso, their management, and label would like to thank Johann’s family, the Coolangatta Hotel, all suppliers and Oztix for their support and contribution in allowing this very special tribute show to transpire.
