Run, Rock n Raise feat Kaiser Chiefs & Kodaline

Kaiser Chiefs & Kodaline to play in the North East at inaugural ‘Rock n Raise’ charitable event

The first major fundraising event of the newly-formed Graham Wylie Foundation will see some of the leading names in music perform in the North East at the launch of the inaugural Rock n Raise, ‘making every note count’, concert.

The Kaiser Chiefs have already been confirmed as one of the acts playing at the event, which will take place at the Newcastle Metro Radio Arena on the evening of the Great North Run on September 11th, supported by the Great Run Company.

Irish rock band Kodaline will also be performing, with other acts to be announced in the coming months.

Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson will be starting the run and taking part for the first time; featuring on the BBC coverage on the start line and a big part of the day.

Ricky Wilson, said: “We can’t wait to come up to Newcastle to support such deserving causes. The North East is always a special place to perform, the crowd is always amazing and it’s impossible not to feel energised when the audience is so fantastic, even I you have just run a half marathon.”

Rock n Raise is in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust, Nordoff Robbins and the Graham Wylie Foundation. All monies raised will stay in the region.
