Livenation have just announced an awesome line-up of bands for a show in aid of the War Child charity. The show will be 16th February at the O2, Shepards Bush Empire, London and on the bill so far are Kasabian, La Roux and Calvin Harris (DJ Set) and there are still some very special guests to be announced.
All profits from the show will go to aid War Child‘s work with children in war zones across the world so not only do you see some amazing bands but you will be helping out as well.
Quote from Kasabian: “War Child’s work is absolutely vital. Simple! They have done so many beautiful things and to help raise money for them to extend the reach of their amazing work is a huge honour. It will be an inspirational night all round!”
Quote from Mark Waddington, CEO, War Child: “The effects of war on children are not going away. Children are still recruited into armed forces, bombed and shot. And they are denied their right to health services and school because of war. This event will continue to remind people about the innocent victims of war and their plight, and it will raise much needed money to help War Child to continue extending our reach to benefit ever more children. The British music industry has, again, shown that it wants this injustice to be addressed and is doing something about it, all tribute to them.”
Sally Cowdry, Marketing Director at O2 said: “We’ve had a hugely successful first year providing great customer experiences through the O2 Academy venues. What better way to celebrate than to once again support this unique event and special cause?”
