SYDNEY, Australia (Sony Music Australia) - Pete Murray, Silverchair, Powderfinger, Midnight Oil and Nick Cave are just some of Oz's most popular musical acts set to take part in the major charity concert event WAVEAID at Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday, January 29. Tix on sale Monday 9am.
A collective featuring some of Australia's most popular musical acts, are set to perform at WAVEAID - a once in a generation event to generate much needed funds for the millions of people whose lives have been irreversibly impacted by the recent Tsunami disaster in Asia.

WAVEAID, a major concert event with over EIGHT hours of music, will be held at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday January 29 from 2.00pm - 10.30pm. Such an unprecedented event has sparked one of Australia's all time favourite live bands into action for the evening as Midnight Oil join in to do their bit as part of this massive Australian music fundraiser. Silverchair will also play their first Australian performance in nearly two years.

Also confirmed for the all-star WAVEAID bill are:

Pete Murray * Powderfinger * The John Butler Trio * Kasey Chambers * Nick Cave (in intimate mode) * The Waifs * The Finn Brothers * The Wrights (featuring members of Jet, The Living End, Grinspoon, Powderfinger, Spiderbait, You Am I & Dallas Crane), peforming their take of Stevie Wright's classic Australian hit 'Evie', Parts I, II and III.

Tickets are a bargin at $58.00 plus booking fee and will go on sale Monday January 17. Ticketek are donating back all profits from booking fees and charges.

To ensure that maximum money is raised, the event organisers are engaging suppliers to either work free of charge or at cost. All those including the bands, managements, promoters and publicists involved in staging this event are donating their time free of charge.

The net proceeds from the event will be distributed to The Australian Red Cross, Oxfam/Community Aid Abroad, UNICEF and CARE Australia charity organizations.

We urge Sydneysiders to support this event and our fellow citizens of the world.

"We are highly motivated to join fellow Australian performers in what will be a momentous occasion. For this is clearly a time in history for everyone to pitch in and help the people who are struggling to hold on to their lives in the wake of such a shattering event. On such an occasion Midnight Oil hopes all fans will come out and make 'Waveaid' a huge fundraising success." Peter Garrett - Midnight Oil

"The tsunami is a disaster of a proportion that is hard for us to comprehend in Australia. The devastation and loss of life is horrific. Lives have to be pieced back together and a helping hand has to be out stretched immediately. This is a time to come forth and help on whatever level you can. 'Waveaid' is our opportunity to stand and be counted and we implore you to make sure you're by our side January 29th." Bernard Fanning - Powderfinger

"Obviously any person with a heart wants to do whatever they can right now to try and provide some help to all the people who are suffering. Everyone wants to do their little bit so the cricketers play cricket, the TV people do a TV show and the musicians play a gig. The fact that it's turned out to be such a big gig just shows what an undeniable cause this is. It should be a really memorable occasion." Daniel Johns - Silverchair

"If we as musicians can help bring people together, this seems the very least we can do to help our fellow human beings affected by this disaster." John Butler - The John Butler Trio
