Is Tim Rogers the fittest man in rock’n’roll? Just minutes after vice-captaining the Espy Rockdogs at June’s Community Cup in Melbourne, Rogers and his band You Am I will perform at the post-match event.
“After my inconsistent, show-ponyesque performances on the field for the mighty Rockdogs, I wanted to contribute ferociously to Melbourne’s premier A-list event by slaughtering our own back catalogue of cult classics post match,” Rogers said in a release.
Other acts confirmed for the charity football match, which will take place at Elsternwick Park on June 26, are Wollongong’s Tumbleweed, Mercy Kills and The Rebelles. In keeping with this year’s theme, “Do you love me?”, all bands will perform a Nick Cave song as part of their set.
All funds raised for the event will go towards Reclink, an organisation providing sport and arts activities to help people experiencing disadvantage. More than $180,000 was raised at last year’s one-point thriller. Photos here.
