The Wollongong Unibar is set to host the charity show Rock 4 Regal next month after previous successful events in Wollongong, Kiama, Adelaide and Melbourne.

The show is back in Wollongong this year with a huge line-up of bands and it’s all in the name of finding a cure for Motor Neuron Disease (MND).

Previous R4R events have raised tens of thousands of dollars for the cause with musicians, local businesses and punters all digging deep for MND research.

Event organiser Den Murray launched the initiative after his good friend Adam Regal was diagnosed three years ago at just 30 years of age. Adam had only just lost his father to the disease 12 months earlier and has also lost an uncle to MND.

The event raises funds for the Sydney-based research team and acts as a symbol of support for Adam who has continued to remain extremely positive throughout the past three years.

The upcoming concert is set to be a massive night of entertainment with Glenn Esmond of The Butterfly Effect headlining the night alongside Furious Monk, Crash Tragic, Mac Tango and The Conspiracy Plan (reunion show).

Rock 4 Regal will be hosted by Wollongong Unibar on Saturday, March 18 from 7.30pm. Tickets are selling fast so grab yours at moshtix.com.au for $11 plus booking fee.
