Mick Skelton, who has now been released from hospital and is recuperating at home, has the following message:
“I’m incredibly grateful to everyone for the love and support that’s been shown since the tragic accident in September. Of course, all our hearts and thoughts are, and will always be, with Shane’s wife Olivia, their beautiful children and the entire Cooper family.
Since being told of the benefit concert, not a day has gone by that I haven’t felt overwhelmed and so very humbled. I am so proud to be surrounded by people with such love and support for Shane’s family and for my family and myself. It says so much about everyone, from the people putting this together, to the absolutely stellar line up. It’s just incredible and words can’t describe what the night is going to be like.
Even though there is still a long road of recovery left, my spirits remain high and I find comfort in the knowledge that I’ll soon be back behind the drums again, playing the music I love, with the people I love.
To everyone, thank you SO much, inspiration is what can get us thru anything, and I’m not only incredibly driven to get up and get back out there, but I’m so very, very inspired. All my love, Mick xx”
One for the Road’s promoter, Marc Christowski from Empire Touring said:
“Shane Cooper was an integral part of my organisation and Mick Skelton is my go-to drummer. It’s not often this sort of tragedy strikes and I’m proud to say that we have been inundated with artists and crew offering their services to produce this extraordinary benefit concert. It’s going to be one hell of a show, packed with all the biggest hits, a huge production and some very special surprises.“
