AC/DC members Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams, along with legendary hard rock singer Joe Lynn Turner (RAINBOW, DEEP PURPLE, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN), will take part in the "Classic Rock Cares" fundraising tour to benefit The John Entwistle Foundation. Also scheduled to appear are Mark Farner (GRAND FUNK RAILROAD) and Steve Luongo (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 will sing the best of DEEP PURPLE and RAINBOW. Mark Farner will take the stage to sing and play guitar as he launches into the most memorable GRAND FUNK RAILROAD hits. The final set will 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.
