The Playing For Change Band has recently finished one of its most amazing tours. For the first time the band hit the road in Australia, opening for Robert Plant in Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney and performing 3 shows at the Bluesfest in Byron Bay, among prestigious artists such as Ben Harper, Manu Chao, Carlos Santana, Paul Simon, and Iggy Pop.
The PFC crew came to record for the first time in Oceania in september 2012 through the initiative of our great friend and amazing PFC ambassador in Australia, Maurie Stang who also helped us organize the tour and play at the Blues Fest. During 2 weeks the band performed almost every day, jumping on planes and taking bus rides with a total crew of 20 people, including GrandPa Elliot, Tula, Clarence Bekker and Titi Tsira. The reaction and support of the Australian audience has been really impressive and the band will probably come back soon to Australia to bring the fire.
A booth runt by a few volunteers at the BluesFest in Byron Bay also allowed us to raise more than 25,000 USD for the Playing For Change Foundation and spread the spirit of our global movement. We also had the opportunity to film and record some of the shows during the tour, so get ready to enjoy new live videos of the PFC Band very soon.
THANK YOU AUSTRALIA AND SEE YOU SOON
