BROWN GEAR!

Guest list tickets, backstage and aftershow passes, signed records all up for grabs - and it's all for a very good cause...

Ian Brown’s manager is auctioning backstage and aftershow passes to every date on his forthcoming sold-out tour to raise money for charity.

Two guest list tickets, backstage and aftershow passes, signed copies of current single ‘Keep What Ya Got’ and album ‘Solarized’ are all under offer on EBay, with bids currently topping £200.

Money raised from the auction will go to First Opportunities, a special therapy playgroup for babies and children with special needs, currently under the threat of closure.

Manager Hugh Calder writes: “The reason for this – both my children are at this school. And guest list and autographed promos cost me nothing. But the money raised from this auction is needed for my children and their classmates.”

Bidding for the prize ends on October 4.

Ian Brown’s sold out tour calls at:

Leeds University (October 13)

Glasgow Academy (14, 15)

Manchester Apollo (18, 19)

London Brixton Academy (21, 22)
