The Australian music industry is planning a Sydney-sized farewell for Aaron Chugg, who died on March 18 from complications from a stroke he had while tour managing The Stone Roses.
“We were privileged to work with Aaron on what turned out to be his final tour. It’s plain to see straight away – he was a great man, with a pure heart,” says Stone Roses rep Conrad Murray in a statement.
The Enmore Theatre in Sydney will open its doors on Tuesday, April 2 between 3 and 5pm to pay tribute to a man who worked over 30 years with The Hoodoo Gurus, The Moody Blues, The Church, Evermore, Alex Lloyd, The Venetians, the Whitlams, Shannon Noll, The Screaming Jets, Boom Crash Opera, The Rockmelons, Rose Tattoo, The Angels, Crowded House, Big Day Out, Future Music Festival, Michael Coppel Presents, the 2000 Olympic Games, The Harbour Agency, The Australian Broadcasting Corporation and others.
Friends, family and people from the music industry will gather for Aaron’s final farewell.
Aaron Chugg was 53 when he passed away.
