TNT Singer To Host Charity Event

TNT frontman Tony Mills has sent MelodicRock.com the following update:

"As we are in the planning stages of the coming year with concerts, events and the recording of a new album, it's a good time to release the following information.

"During late spring / early summer (I shall of course announce the exact dates and NRK will be involved anyway, so it will be nationally broadcasted) I will have the pleasure of hosting a main charity event for The Autistic Foundation for Norwegian Children in conjunction with the Special Forces (FSK).

"This came about through my good friends Martin Hallager and Stine Scholseth. Martin, amongst his many other attributes, is a skydiving teacher and he has been winding me up for ages trying to get me to jump out of a plane at some dubious height. Stinewas sat with us having a beer before the Sentrum show in Oslo and we got to talking about the autistic children that she cares for. Something connected in me for some reason and I put the two subjects together and thought that maybe it really would be worth doing if it would actually benefit someone else. So after several weeks, and the great assistance from my manager Bjorn Breivik, the plans are taking shape and I will of course post more information regarding this event as we get closer to the date. My hopes are that it will expand the public understanding of the children's condition and raise funds for equipment and facilities that are needed. Simple enough, really, and a worthy cause, I think.

"Here are some further details for interested parties in Norway."

TNT's latest CD, "The New Territory", entered the Norwegian chart at position No. 11 back in May 2007. The CD was released in Japan through Marquee Avalon with two bonus tracks: "Don't Come Too Near" and a live recording of "Harley Davidson" with video footage from Jevnaker in Norway. The CD, which was mixed in Bergen, Norway, was previously described by singer Mills as "very diverse, with radio friendly tracks as well as the heavier side of life, some swing and some atmospherics. . . [It] has all the diversities that I personally had hoped for, with the balls of TNT and the elegance of QUEEN and the post-perspective of various '70s production attitudes."

TNT supported OZZY OSBOURNE on June 8, 2007 in Trondheim, Norway. Also appearing on the bill was BLACK LABEL SOCIETY.
