Liam Gallagher has announced a free concert for NHS workers to acknowledge their efforts during the coronavirus outbreak.
Gallagher said it was an “honour” to announce the concert at London’s 20,000-capacity O2 Arena, adding that NHS workers “do an incredible job, we are very lucky to have them”.
The concert will take place on Thursday 29 October. “NHS staff and NHS contract staff who work in NHS hospitals in the UK” can apply for tickets, at a limit of two per person. Successful applicants can bring a non-NHS guest as the second ticketholder.
Gallagher is the second British indie-rock artist to announce a free NHS concert this week. Welsh trio Manic Street Preachers will play Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on 4 and 5 December – the first show is free for NHS workers, with the second paid show available to all, with proceeds going to NHS Wales.
Eighties pop star Rick Astley will play two free concerts, at Manchester Arena on 28 October and Wembley’s SSE Arena on 1 November, with tickets available to all NHS and emergency services staff.
