Rock For Kids - Media Release

Friday May 4 is Starlight Day, the Starlight Foundation's annual fundraising event. Proudly supporting Starlight Day this year is 'ROCK FOR KIDS', grouping some of Australia's largest tribute shows at the Waterfront City Piazza, Docklands in a FREE PUBLIC EVENT. KISStroyer (Kiss), Appetite For Destruction (Guns 'n' Roses), Bad Medicine (Bon Jovi) and Just A Girl (No Doubt) will donate their performances in a bid to raise $20,000 through donations and sponsorship to help the Starlight brighten the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children.

KISSTROYER, Australia's largest and most successful touring KISS show, will display an amazing and much hyped about show in its entirety to the outdoor precinct of Waterfront City. Including their huge light up KISS logo and stage, authentic costumes, grease paint, pyrotechnics, a plethora of authentic guitars and all the fire breathing, guitar smashing mayhem that has brought fame to the KISS name for over 30 years. The band will be fresh from appearing on Channel 9's 1 vs 100 with Eddie McGuire and playing at Paul Stanley's official after party in Melbourne.

APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION was one of the most influential albums of the late 80's early 90's, and the name sake for this equally remarkable Australian tribute show. Over the past 4 years this band has become one of the most reputable, and sort after shows throughout Australia. They are known as one of the most authentic and outstanding tribute bands in Melbourne - testament to that is the bands ability to attract a plethora of endorsee's and sponsors as well as playing packed out shows nationally.

BAD MEDICINE is Australia's Premiere Bon Jovi Show. With 100s of shows nationally under their belt and live unplugged performances on Triple M this is one show you will not want to miss. George as "Jon" bares an uncanny resemblance to Jon Bon Jovi. Belting out classics like 'Wanted Dead Or Alive' and 'You Give Love A Bad Name', Bad Medicine will have you screaming for more.

JUST A GIRL is one of the countries freshest tribute shows. With a front lady with as much personality as Gwen Stefani herself, this is another band that will have you fooled into thinking you are seeing and hearing the real thing.

There will also be a variety of childrens activities, roving entertainers, face painters and childrens character's amongst festivities.

Since 1988 the Starlight Children's Foundation has brightened the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children, and their families, by delivering innovative programs that restore the fun, laughter and joy that serious illness takes away.

Currently Starlight only reaches 'one in three' of the 600,000 child admissions made to Australian hospitals each year. Starlight's goal is to give all seriously ill and hospitalised children the opportunity to access and benefit from our programs.

Every cent raised will go directly to Starlight, not one entertainer or volunteer will make a cent out of this wonderful event. So please make sure you donate when you see our volunteers. Every bit helps. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or a sponsor of the event, please contact for more information.

The event would not be possible without the in-kind help from Waterfrontcity, Concert Audio, Melbourne Fireworks and all the sponsors and Volunteers for the event.

Ensure you get down to Waterfrontcity, Docklands (see map) to enjoy this FREE to the PUBLIC event for a most wonderful cause.
