The Pussycat Dolls are heading down under and will perform a charity fundraiser to assist breast cancer research in Australia later this month.
The group – which began as a burlesque troupe based in Los Angeles in 1995, before being “re-cast” as a music group in 2003 – was created by choreographer Robin Antin and recently released their second studio album, Doll Domination.
The Dolls will hit the stage at QBH (of the Queensbridge Hotel) in Melbourne at 7.30pm on Thursday October 16, with all proceeds going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The girls agreed to do the benefit after their close friend Christina Applegate was diagnosed with the disease earlier this year.
The event will be branded Ford Live!, and is being sponsored by Ford Australia.
“Ford Live! is a great opportunity for people to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, and at the same time see a world class music act in their only Melbourne appearance,” said Ford Spokesperson Nick Cummins.
Tickets are $140 and are available from www.nbcf.org.au.
