Snap Scene: Playing It Forward: John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes, Noiseworks – Hisense Arena, 28th June 2017

Music industry mates John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes, Noiseworks and Diesel banded together for one night only with the Playing It Forward benefit concert at Hisense Arena on June 28. Well-known Australian guitarist Stuart (Chet) Fraser – a founding member of Noiseworks, long-term player in John Farnham’s band, and occasional guitarist in the Barnes Band – was diagnosed with lung cancer last year.

Supported by long-time friend Olivia Newton-John, who Chet has performed regularly with in the past, he underwent surgery and treatment at the ONJ Wellness Centre. His friends banded together for a special fundraising concert – Playing It Forward – to raise continued proceeds for Chet’s Help A Mate appeal, as well as donating much-needed funds to Olivia Newtown John’s Wellness Centre, and Support Act.

With the help of John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes, Diesel and Noiseworks, with special guests Ian Moss & Daryl Braithwate, this one-off show was a night to remember.
