AC/DC Singer, Bassist To Headline RED CROSS Benefit Event

AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson and bassist Cliff Williams will headline a benefit concert in Florida that could bring in more than $100,000 for the American Red Cross and its efforts to help replace the things Hurricane Charley blew away, according to the Naples Daily News.

The concert, which will take place on September 10 at the Germain Arena in Fort Myers, will also include former BAD COMPANY frontman Brian Howe.

AC/DC guitar players and founding members Angus and Malcolm Young are currently in New Zealand and will be unable to participate in the show, Beasley Broadcast Group promotions director Ronnie Kabansky said.

Tickets for the show will be $25 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. They are available at the Germain Arena box office, Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at 334-3309 or at

A sell-out would bring in about $150,000 and all the money after costs are deducted will go to the Red Cross.
