Following a spate of shows with The Church in Victoria, legendary frontman, Aria Hall of Famer and Australian icon Steve Kilbey will head to the Central Coast, to headline a benefit concert in support of Avoca Beach family, the Jardines. Under the Stars with Steve Kilbey will take place at the Block ‘n Tackle Brewery in Kincumber and will be emceed by none other than Australian radio and television personality Adam Spencer.
To give you a brief background, Welders understand the risks that go along with their work, but they don’t expect the job they are welding to blow up in their face. On the 8th of February, Avoca Beach man and expat Scot Mick Jardine was welding at the Block ‘n Tackle Brewery in Kincumber, NSW when there was an explosion, causing serious burns to 30% of his body. He’s on a long road to recovery and the family is counting their blessings, but as a contractor Jardine doesn’t have the support of a big company behind him and as a new Australian resident, he doesn’t have local family to help him, his wife and two young children through this difficult time.
Ahead of the benefit, Mandy and Akmal spoke with Adam Spencer
