Maximo Park have today announced a free gig in their hometown of Newcastle upon Tyne.
The freebie is in celebration of their "return to the pop game" and will also allow 250 people the chance to buy the exclusive 7" "non-single" 'Wraithlike' - of which there will be just 250 copies available, with all proceeds going to the cancer charity No Surrender (www.no-surrender.org). The single is already available as a free download from the Maximo Park homepage (www.maximopark.com). The aim of the website is to provide a social/ support network where people suffering the effects of cancer can communicate their concerns and support.
The charity is close to the band's heart as it was set-up by their late friend Jason Boas, who died of pancreatic cancer.
Entry to the gig on Tuesday 24th March is by wristband only, with wristbands available at 7PM. Obviously, you'll need to turn-up early, as it will be a roadblock!
