The band’s 2019 comeback charity shows came in support of one of the band’s biggest fans, Stuart Brothers, who had been given “a few short weeks to live by his Doctors”.
“Recently, a man who can quite legitimately lay claim to being the world’s biggest FFAF fan (both literally and figuratively!), our friend Stuart ‘Big Stu’ Brothers, has been stricken with a terrible illness which has ultimately led to a terminal prognosis,” the band wrote.
“As Stu’s friends, we wanted to do something to help; particularly for his family and three young sons, who are going through unspeakable trauma right now.” Proceeds from the show went directly to Brothers’ family.
