Steven Tyler To Launch Charity Janie’s Fund Gala

Aerosmith legend Steven Tyler will launch his charity Janie’s Fund first gala on 28 January.

 

Janie’s Fund, named after the Aerosmith classic ‘Janie’s Got A Gun’. The charity has raised $2.5 million since it launched in 2015. The song is about child abuse.

“The time has arrived to share what we’ve done and what we’re striving for. This inaugural gala is designed to bring my friends and family together so we can continue to provide uplifting and needed support for Janie’s Fund. This gala is more than a night out, it’s a break on through to the other side for these girls whose lives have been stunted. It’s an opportunity to learn of the valuable work we will be doing to get them there. It’s time to bring the awareness out of the darkness and into the light for these girls, for all to see,” said Tyler.

Wollongong Venue Distances Itself From Billy Gibbons Australian Show Disaster

Anita’s Theatre in the Wollongong suburb of Thirroul has distanced itself from the Billy Gibbons debacle after the ZZ Top legend performed just three songs on his first night and four the second night at the venue on the weekend.

 

Wollongong newspaper The Illawarra Mercury claims fans were outraged by the amount of time the less than enthusiastic Gibbons devoted to his fans. “ZZ Top fans have branded frontman Billy Gibbons’ “Up Close and Personal” tour a waste of money and demanded refunds after the legend failed to impress at shows in Thirroul,” reporter Desiree Savage wrote.

Gibbons was on stage for just 15 minutes.
