Already an institution, this is the ninth year of ‘Rock for Alzheimer’s’ with the previous sell out gigs having already raised over £46,000 in aid of The Alzheimer’s Society NI. The gig features top local rock tributes, all of whom have a personal family story to tell in relation to Alzheimer’s. This annual event won ‘fundraiser of the year’ category of The Dementia Friendly Awards in November 2017 and we are proud to again host this event to take the total proceeds beyond £50,000 for this great cause.
Celebrating over 25 years together, AC?DC have turned the celebration of Bon Scott’s music into a near religious experience. Their set highlights the wonderful music the man left behind, with classics like Highway to Hell, Touch Too Much and It’s a Long Way to the Top. Add to that the likes of Thunderstruck and Back in Black from the Johnson era and you have an incredible night of AC/DC played by five DC fanatics. If you have never seen these guys, come down and enjoy the show, if you have seen them, you’ll have your ticket already.
