Friends of Luke Liang To Host A Bright Light Tribute

The friends of Luke Laing will host the tribute show ‘A Bright Light’ for Luke in Sydney on October 4.

The show will feature Alex The Astronaut, Jarryd James, Montaigne, Papa vs Pretty, Thelma Plum, Jack River, and friends.

Luke Liang died at the age of 28 on 29 August 2018.

As a tribute Jen Boyce of Ball Park Music penned:

“The world lost an incredible talent, a kind heart and an unwavering friend. Luke Liang was the finest musician I will ever meet. Everyone he ever came in contact with was warmed by his joyful presence and impressed by his ability to master anything in a matter of hours – seemingly with great ease. New instruments, languages, skateboarding… He even completed a law degree whilst touring. He was unstoppable. While talking about him over the last few days we have come to the conclusion that Lukey was “the ideal human being”.

“For his loved ones, the loss is inconceivable. For everyone who knew him, his passing comes as a huge shock. Luke had the biggest, most glorious smile and would always do his best to cheer you up or help you out of a bad situation. He had time for everyone and would drop you a line even if he only had a spare half an hour to catch up. It is so unbelievable to think that such a gorgeous soul could lose his battle with depression.

“That’s the thing – depression does not discriminate. It’s like cancer. Some are lucky and go into remission, never to face the beast again. Some endure it to varying degrees their whole lives. For others it is a sudden, severe and incurable disease.

“I’m so sad that he couldn’t see how widely and deeply loved and respected he was. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone in our industry who didn’t know of Luke and his musicianship, kindness and incredible work ethic.

“Every time I think of butter coffee, Star Trek, Instagram stories, high fives, being “togeeetherrrr”, double dinners, long hugs and Red Bull, I’ll remember you and your cheeky smile.

“We are all here for each other. We are stronger together. Tell your loved ones how much you love them. If anyone needs to talk, I’m here. If you are experiencing struggles of your own, please seek help, or ask a trusted person to assist you in seeking help. You are loved and appreciated.

We will miss you and love you forever, Lukey.”

A Bright Light – An evening for Luke will be held on Thursday October 4, at The Metro Theatre, Sydney. Tickets are $40 through Ticketek.
