More You Am I More You Am I

Some of Australia's biggest names in music will team up for a special benefit gig this year, in honour of beloved industry figure, Kate Stewart

After suffering a severe stroke last September, friends and family are rallying behind the ex-You Am I manager, in the form of a concert to take place at Factory Theatre in Sydney on 14 March with all proceeds going to Stewart. 

Confirmed to perform on the night is Bernard Fanning, Phil Jamieson, Paul Dempsey, Smudge, Peter Fenton, Sally Seltmann and of course, You Am I.

"[Stewart] was the first person to give us a chance, and the last person out of the venue for hundreds, maybe thousands of shows," You Am I said.

"Though we parted ways a while back we remain dear friends, as again, she has given us chances when we maybe didn’t deserve them. Now she needs some help (she never asked for it. Never would.)

"So, we are putting on a show with some wags who also wanna give a little something back to the woman who gave us everything. More to be announced but dig in to this with us lot. And to the folks who will suggest calling the night 'Something For Kate' well, yes, it is. But we believe there is a music group of the same nomenclature. And we don’t wanna ruffle their plumage."
