May 17, 2007
JOE LYNN TURNER (Ex-Deep Purple/Rainbow) and MEMBERS OF AC/DC, GRAND FUNK RAILROAD and the JOHN ENTWISTLE BAND (The Who) COMBINE FORCES FOR FUNDRAISING TOUR as “CLASSIC ROCK CARES”
The John Entwistle Foundation is a mission devoted to providing free music education and instruments for underprivileged children through the public library system in the United States. The organization is proud to announce a special summer fundraising concert tour featuring several rock legends on one stage:
-Brian Johnson & Cliff Williams of AC/DC
-Mark Farner formerly of Grand Funk Railroad
-Joe Lynn Turner formerly of Deep Purple/Rainbow
-Steve Luongo of The John Entwistle Band
This unique show uses a single backing band comprised of world class musicians led by drummer Steve Luongo of The John Entwistle Band. Doing this allows some of rock’s premier voices to walk on stage and sing only their biggest hits.
Joe Lynn Turner sings the best of Deep Purple and Rainbow. Mark Farnertakes the stage to sing and play guitar as he launches into the most memorableGrand Funk Railroad hits. The final set features Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams, Steve Luongo and Mark Hitt who perform mega-chart busting AC/DC hits along with their own new material.
After almost two solid hours of non-stop classic rock all of the musicians join together for the encore, “Highway To Hell.” Classic Rock Cares will perform a limited number of shows during the month of July.
These concerts raise money for the John Entwistle Foundation. The John Entwistle Foundation was named for the late bassist of The Who. In addition to the primary mission of free and easy access to music education, the foundation has also raised significant funds for disaster relief including donations to The Red Cross and The Florida Hurricane Relief Fund. The John Entwistle Foundation is a United States Government approved 501(c)(3) non profit foundation.
