A Charity Rock Gig Raising Money For Help For Heroes Is Coming To Greater Manchester

Rock for Heroes will land in Bolton as part of Armed Forces Day.

Performed by a full live rock band, Rock For Heroes promises to entertain the crowds at the Albert Halls on June 29 while helping raise money for Help For Heroes. The charity supports armed forces personnel and their families who have suffered as a result of military service which impacts their life.

The gig will combine our favourite rock and pop performances from across the eras with songs from artists such as Queen, David Bowie, Toto, Dire Straits, Elton John, AC/DC, Van Halen and so many more.

Mayor of Bolton, Cllr Hilary Fairclough, said:

“Bolton has a proud tradition of supporting our Armed Forces and Rock For Heroes adds to a number of activities that are part of Armed Forces Day in the town centre.

“I encourage everyone to come and enjoy the activities, help raise money for good causes and show their support for the Armed Forces.”

Phil Hawkins, Rock For Heroes Director and Singer, said:

“The show follows on from our hugely successful first year touring with audiences enjoying their favourite hits and joining in the fun and laughter.

“At the end of every show we also fundraise for Help For Heroes and it is our long term aim to raise £2.5 million.”
