A LIVE music show will be rocking two Dorset venues to raise money for Help for Heroes. Rock for Heroes brings together tributes to legendary rock and pop artists across the eras.

The show is heading to The Exchange in Sturminster Newton this Friday at 7.30pm and also The Barrington Centre in Ferndown on Friday, September 13. Since launching in February, the tour has raised around £20,000. Organisers say they aim to double this figure by the end of the year.

A tour spokesman said: “We will be collecting for this amazing cause, after every show, our aim is to raise 2.5 million – it’s a long plan!

“Performed by a full live rock band and superb singers, complete with brilliant personalities and comedy value, this really is a night out unlike any other with music from artists such as the legendary Queen, Dire Straits, David Bowie, Status Quo, Bryan Adams, Elton John, AC/DC, Whitesnake and so many more.”

He added: “You won’t see a bad wig here, this isn’t a tribute act this is simply paying tribute, the best way we can to the legends in music. Escape the 9 to 5 and let your hair down with the Rock For Heroes family!”
