"The past few weeks have been some of the toughest times we've ever been through both individually and as a band,” Bliss N Eso said in a statement on Wednesday morning.

"We continue to offer our support to the family and friends of Johann Ofner...

"We are thankful for his family's blessing in allowing us to put on this tribute concert to celebrate the life of this amazing man and loving father.”

The band will also delay the release of their upcoming album until Friday, April, 28.

The tribute gig will be at the Coolangatta Hotel on Friday, March 3 and all proceeds will be donated to a trust for Ofner's daughter.
