Hero2Hero
Dazed & Confused presents HERO2HERO, an all-star charity concert series brought to you by O2 Music

Tuesday 7th, Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th December 2004

Dazed & Confused magazine and O2 Music are proud to announce the creation of HERO2HERO – Three nights of live music at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire, produced and hosted by Dazed & Confused and sponsored by O2 in aid of music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins.

Over the last 10 years Dazed & Confused has repeatedly given current stars the chance to talk to their musical heroes within its pages. One recurring thread from these candid conversations is the expressed desire to collaborate musically, but these hook-ups have seldom come to fruition. Until now. With the support of O2, these unique meetings of musical minds are being brought into the realm of performance.

Dates:

  • Tuesday 7th - ESTELLE with ROY AYERS plus very special guests
  • Wednesday 8th - THE CHARLATANS with RONNIE WOOD and guests
  • Thursday 9th - DAMON DASH’S ROC-A-FELLA RECORDS presents N.O.R.E. with BIG DADDY KANE. Plus MOP, DJ CLARK KENT, NICOLE WRAY

For each HERO2HERO concert a contemporary artist or band will introduce and perform with their chosen Hero as well as an up and coming act with whom they also share a musical spirit. As you can see the line ups for all three gigs are pretty special. The fist night features Virgin's artist of the moment Estelle alongside famous musician Roy Ayers and together they should produce somethig quite special on the night. Also of interest to Hip Hop heads is the absolutely massive line up of Thursday the 9th which features not only several major New York rap stars N.O.R.E.and MOP, but also takes things back to the old skool with originators such as BDK and mixtape king Clark Kent. These are one off shows not to be missed.

100% of net ticket sale profits will go to Nordoff Robbins. The national charity uses live and improvised music to help people of all ages in need, and has an excellent long-standing relationship with the British Music industry.

This activity demonstrates O2’s on-going commitment to music and the music industry. The O2 Music service enables you to take your hero’s with you through your mobile, with over 130,000 music tracks to choose from, as well as ringtones and images of your hero’s, where ever, whenever you want.
