Mike Freear 'Slamboree' for Barry's Flying Circus

40% Raised

It is with petrified excitement I can announce on the 7th of October I will be joining 'Barry Ashworth's Flying Circus', taking to the skies on top of a Boeing Stearman Biplane, performing a series of flypasts, zoom climbs, steep dives and banks - all to raise mental health & suicide awareness on behalf of Tonic Music for Mental Health. This is a cause that is very close to my heart and I would really appreciate your support as we raise both awareness and funds for this vital cause.

I'll be wing walking for Tonic to coincide with Tonic's new campaign launch ‘The Tonic Rider’, raising awareness of suicide and mental health within the music industry. This new campaign is designed for artists, roadies, managers, promoters, sound crews, production crews and everyone in between.

Tonic’s aim is to target green rooms and venues across the UK, and to include ‘The Tonic Rider’ on all rider lists and wall posters. It will provide information on coping strategies, anxiety, depression, performance anxiety and post-show blues, along with signposting to services that can help in a crisis.

With the rise of suicide within the music industry, Tonic (supported by Tonic's patron Barry Ashworth) have decided it's time to make a change. Having recently lost fellow artists to suicide, Barry knows only too well how touring pressure, excess and exhaustion can have devastating consequences. 

Mental health support and guidance within the music industry is paramount.

Please support Mike & Tonic to make a difference and reduce deaths by suicide within the music industry. Donate today!
