Powderfinger To Virtually Reunite For Beyond Blue and Support Act

Powderfinger will virtually reunite in a one-off performance this Saturday to benefit Beyond Blue and Support Act.

The five members Darren Middleton, Jon Coghill, Bernard Fanning, Ian Haug and John Collins, will perform together alone each from their own homes.

“The five of us have been meeting regularly over the past few months to organise some Odyssey Number 5 anniversary releases. The idea came up of playing together again in this unusual format which we all thought would be fun. The past few months has been a very strange time for us all and difficult days for many. We really just want to bring a smile to some people’s faces and along the way raise some funds to help our music industry mates and people who are currently experiencing mental health issues,” said the band.

The last time Powderfinger played was on 13 November, 2010.

The event will be streamed on YouTube.

Ruuben van den Heuvel, Head of Music Content Partnerships (South East Asia, AU/NZ), YouTube said, “At YouTube, we believe great music, combined with the reach and scale of the internet, makes the world a better place. And this has never been more true than during these days. We’re pumped to be able to help bring the highly anticipated ‘One Night Lonely’ reunion of Powderfinger into Aussies’ homes and support some amazing charities at the same time.”
