Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly auctions himself for acoustic gig
Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly will be taking his acoustic guitar to the home of the fan willing to pay the highest amount for him to perform a private gig.
The musician, whose real name is Sam Duckworth, has started an online auction via eBay, with the proceeds set to go to charity aid efforts in the flood-hit areas of Pakistan.
Duckworth said he was inspired to act after hearing about the four million people left homeless and in desperate need of aid in the country.
"As a result, I put a note up on Facebook seeing if anyone would be interested in donating money to the DEC/Oxfam appeal in exchange for an 'in your house' acoustic gig," the acoustic guitar player explained, adding that the response to his idea had been "overwhelming".
With six days left to run in the auction, the highest bid currently stands at more than £900.
