NEW YEAR’S EVE @ THE AVALON in SANTA CLARA, CA

GEOFF TATE, DON DOKKEN, CHUCK BILLY, JIMMY DEGRASSO, RON KEEL AND MANY MORE!

HOLLYWOOD, CA (December 16, 2010) – A parade of Rockstars are coming together to support beloved bassist, Phil Kennemore, founding member of Northern California’s legendary rockers Y&T,

Kennemore was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer while on tour this last summer. Having recorded and toured the world relentlessly since 1974, Kennemore has dedicated his life to making millions of people happy with his music. Now, he needs your help.

Due to the overwhelming medical bills, Y&T’s lead singer and best mate, Dave Meniketti, started the “Phil Kennemore Fund” to help Phil with his bills. This New Year’s concert is the ultimate fund-raiser for a friend who has made such a positive impact on the music scene.

This concert is an allstar line up of many of Kennemore’s friends from bands such as Queensryche, Dokken, RATT, Black Sabbath, DIO, Alice Cooper, Testament, and Y&T all donating their time to perform on New Year’s Eve. This is a must-see concert and is going to rock!

The lineup for the all star extravaganza is as follows:

  • · Geoff Tate (Queensryche)
  • · Don Dokken (Dokken)
  • · Bobby Blotzer (RATT)
  • · Vinny Appice (DIO, Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell)
  • · Sean McNabb (Dokken, Montrose)
  • · Loren Gold (Roger Daltrey)
  • · Chuck Billy (Testament)
  • · Paul Bostaph (Testament, Slayer)
  • · Jimmy DeGrasso (Alice Cooper)
  • · Joey Alves
  • · Leonard Haze
  • · Ron Keel
  • · Greg Kihn
  • · …and more (see www.YandTRocks.com for updates)

The show will take place at the Avalon (777 Lawrence Expressway. Santa Clara, CA), a 1000+ capacity venue which Y&T has performed at several times on New Year’s Eve over the past five years. The club, like the performers, has generously volunteered to donate 100% of the ticket proceeds directly to Phil.

The doors open at 8:00PM. Tickets are $75. For further information, call the Avalon at 408.241.0777 or visit www.YandTRocks.com.
