Sound Relief, the charity concert for the Victoria bushfire and Queensland flood victims will be released as a 4DVD set in October.Michael Gudinski’s Liberation Music will release the document of one of Australia’s greatest shows for Australia’s biggest tragedy.
In a statement, Michael said, “Sound Relief was literally born from the ashes of a terrible time in Australia’s history. The concerts became so much more than just a charity fundraising event; they were a way for the community to unite and heal.
“I’m overjoyed that the DVD release can go ahead and we can’t express our appreciation enough to the artists and everyone involved who helped make it possible. Since the day of the concert we’ve received so many enquiries about whether the concerts would be released on DVD that I wouldn’t be surprised if this became the highest selling DVD in Australian history.
“It is fitting that a lasting record will be available of this once in a lifetime event for future generations.”
