Legends team up for 'WE CARE'


Bob Geldof is known for his ‘Live Aid’ project where he, and Midge Ure, organized a dual-venue benefit concert to raise funds for famine relief in Africa..

It was held on Saturday. July 13th, 1985, and helped raised a whopping $ 127 million.

More than 75 acts performed, including Elton John, Queen, Madonna, Santana, Run DMC, Sade, Sting, Bryan Adams, the Beach Boys, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Queen, Duran Duran, U2, the Who, Tom Petty, Neil Young, and Eric Clapton.

I wouldn’t call it a similar scene, but a charity concert, with a difference, is being put together by Richard de Zoysa, and it will be held on Saturday, May 26th, 2019, at the Nelum Pokuna Theatre, in Colombo.

Richard is now a big name in the scene here and is doing yeoman service for the improvement of the entertainment industry.

He is the brains behind the action now taking place at The HUT, Mount Lavinia Hotel.

Richard was present at a musical event, put together by Sohan, last December, for the cancer patients at Apeksha Hospital, Maharagama.

After having discussed their needs with the Indira Cancer Trust, at the hospital, Richard and Elite Promotions and Entertainment, have decided to organise an extensive fund-raising campaign.

‘WE CARE’ will bring into the spotlight some of the greats of the local showbiz scene and it will certainly be a rare opportunity to see such legends – live in action.

The big names include Mignonne, Noeline, Raj Seneviratne, Dalreen, Mariazelle, Rukshan, Melantha, Judy and Rajitha.

The show will also feature Shiyam, Shamistar, Ranil Amirthaiya, April Shockman, Sherriden, and Shane Berenger.

Sohan and The X-Periments and Mirage will provide the music for the stars to shine at ‘WE CARE.’

Richard de Zoysa emphasized that ‘WE CARE’ will not be just another musical concert.

"We are working on giving the audience something new to experience, something that they would treasure, while also contributing to a very worthy cause."
