Bands offer 'Eggboy' free tickets for life, teen plans to donate thousands to terrorist victims

News 19/03/2019

Along with receiving a flood of nominations for Australian of the Year and over $40,000 in donations, the teen dubbed 'Eggboy' has been offered free tickets for life from a host of famous bands.

Will Connolly, 17, made headlines when he broke an egg on the head of Australian Senator Fraser Anning over the weekend.

The incident took place shortly after Anning released a statement that blamed Muslim immigration for the terrorist attack on two Christchurch mosques that left 50 dead.

After being hailed a 'hero,' bands and musicians from around the globe are rushing to offer the young protester free entry to their gigs whenever he likes.

"Egg Boy, you have free entry to any Hoods show for life should you wish," tweeted Australian hip-hop group Hilltop Hoods, who recently opened for Eminem in Wellington.

Punk band The Living End retweeted a video of the incident with the caption: "This kid is welcome at any TLE show. Anytime. Anywhere. In egg boy we trust".

Invitations were even extended from major US festival Rolling Loud and 'Teenage Dirtbag' hitmakers Wheatus.

GoFundMe page for Connolly has raised over $52,000 at the time of writing. An updated blurb on the page says the teen plans to send a majority of the money to the victims of the terror attacks.

What a champ.
