The Belfast Empire
42 Botanic Avenue, BT7 1JQ Belfast, United Kingdom
Incredibly this is the sixth year for 'Rock for Alzheimer's' and previous sell out gigs have already raised £26,000 in aid of The Alzheimer's Society, featuring top local rock tributes, all of whom have a personal family story to tell in relation to Alzheimer’s. In fact this annual event has recently been selected by Dementia Friendly Communities as a finalist for ‘fundraiser of the year’ category of The Dementia Friendly Awards 2017, being held in November.

Celebrating over 20 years together, AC?DC have turned the celebrating of Bon Scott’s music into a near religious experience. Their marathon set highlights the wonderful music the man left behind, from the hits like Highway to Hell, Touch Too Much and It’s a Long Way to the Top, to the lesser known, but still classic tracks like What’s next to the moon. Add to that Thunderstruck, You Shook Me (all Night Long) and Back in Black and you have an incredible night of AC/DC music played live by five DC fanatics. If you have never seen these guys, come down and enjoy the show, if you have seen them, you’ll have your ticket already.

For over 25 years Arms of Venus de Milo have been one of Northern Ireland's premier Rock and Indie cover bands; you may have seen them headline this year’s Oktoberfest at Custom House Square. Widely respected for their versatile and energetic set list covering almost five decades, they have built up a loyal and well-deserved fan base, not least among Empire regulars. You're guaranteed not to hear the same set twice, and can expect to hear anything and everything including Guns N' Roses, Killers, Bon Jovi, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Journey, The Who, Stereophonics, Metallica and much much more. The band have supported AC?DC on all the Rock For Alzheimer's gigs, in hard hitting style. 'The Arms' go from strength to strength and you will not be disappointed with this year's instalment.

Opening the show once again this year are The Foyer Incident — A crackin' acoustic duo with a busy schedule, comprising of vocalist and guitarist, delivering classic songs and rock anthems with a twist. These pair will have you singing it loud — Rock done different and not to be missed!
