Guitarist/producer Roy Z (BRUCE DICKINSON, HALFORD), guitarist Gus G. (FIREWIND, OZZY OSBOURNE), vocalist Ralf Scheepers (PRIMAL FEAR, GAMMA RAY), guitarist Roland Grapow (MASTERPLAN, HELLOWEEN), and vocalist Brian O’Connor (VICIOUS RUMORS,CONSFEARACY) are among the multi-national cast of musicians to partake in the 4th edition of the Metal For Kids. United! all-star charity jam. The event is scheduled for Saturday, May 25 at the Crossroads Live Club in Rome, Italy and will also feature more than 30 Italian metal musicians, including members of EXTREMA, SECRET SPHERE, LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE and DORO. Italian acts TEMPERANCE, ANCESTRAL and NEXUS OPERA are set to serve as openers.

Ticket proceeds and part of the crowdfunding campaign launched on the GoFundMe platform will be donated to Peter Pan Onlus Association of Rome www.peterpanonlus.it which has supported children with cancer and their families since 1994, offering free hospitality in Rome during treatments at the Bambino Gesù pediatric hospital.

“We’ve all lost people near and dear to us to cancer so when I was approached about lending my talents to this event, I didn’t have to think long”, said Z. “It’s always good to help out when you get the chance to. Not only are we rocking for a very worthy cause and will hopefully raise a good amount of money, on a personal level I’m looking forward to seeing my old friends Roland (Grapow) and Ralf (Scheepers) as well as Gus G. Please support this event by attending if you can and donating through the GoFundMe page that’s been set up.”

Metal For Kids. United! is a musical format created in 2016 by Fabrizio Troiano, event manager and passionate music lover, with the goal of helping children in any state of necessity, through solidarity initiatives in which artists of the national and international metal scene are involved front and center. “From March 25th, when we officially announced the event, we have received further requests of participation by musicians from all over the world, including the most recent addition, Gus G., proving to us the high beneficial value of the initiative. For that reason we have decided to expand the benefit campaign through GoFundMe in order to collect additional donations on top of the ticket proceeds. This gives the community of music lovers and philanthropists an opportunity to be an active part in this great solidarity event, especially those who cannot attend the show in person. The campaign has reached 30% of its target; the goal is to raise 10,000 Euro by May 25th. Check it out on gofundme.com/metal-for-kids-united-against-kids-cancer”.

The event has a projected running time of over 5 hours of music from 7.00 pm to 2.00 am. General admission tickets will be sold at a ‘special price’ of 15 Euro. Kids under 14 years of age pay 5 Euro only in order to better accommodate families with children wanting to attend.
