Thursday 3 November 2016, 7.30pm – Liverpool Philharmonic Music Room.
Established legends and rising stars of Liverpool’s music scene are coming together at The Philharmonic Hall ahead of World AIDS Day 2016 for a spectacular fundraising event, set to celebrate the lives and ongoing legacies of the many people living with HIV.
Following on from the success of last year’s sell-out show, The Celebration of Life concert will bring together some of the city’s most passionate performers to generate vital support for Sahir House, Liverpool’s dedicated HIV Charity.
The event will be hosted by Gerry Potter, the Liverpool-born poet, director, actor and author. Gerry will be introducing the headline act: Tommy Scott, lead singer of Space, with his bandmate Phil Hartley on bass.
They will be joined by Paul Hemmings from The La’s and The Lightning Seeds, up-and-coming LIPA singer-songwriter Satin Beige, and Martin Smith from Michael Head and the Red Elastic Band.
Also on the bill are the award-winning Sense of Sound Singers. Rising soul star Mersey Wylie will be performing, and the bluesy Connie Lush will be bringing her gritty, powerful vocals to the packed hall.
The event will also raise awareness of National HIV Testing week, encouraging everybody to overcome the outdated stigma surrounding HIV and take prevention into their own hands. This ties in with the theme for World AIDS Day 2016: ‘HIV stigma: Not retro, just wrong.’
