War Child presents: Kasabian, La Roux, Calvin Harris for London post-Brits gig, 16th February 2010

Posted: 29th January 2010

War Child have just announced a special gig at the Shepherds Bush Empire next month on Tuesday 16th February, featuring Kasabian, La Roux, Calvin Harris and guests to be announced.

The night will raise essential funds for international charity War Child, which helps to raise awareness to the plight faced by millions of children around the world affected, or sometimes even involved in conflict, as well as providing assistance.

Like last year's post-Brits party, the night will feature this year's Brits nominees, with last year's event featuring the Killers and Coldplay, with special appearances by Gary Barlow and Bono, so expect more surprises for this year's guests!

Speaking about the event, Kasabian had this to say:

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!

War Child CEO Mark Waddington added:

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. 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.

Tickets for the night will cost £50 + booking fee and will go on sale this Wednesday (3rd February) at 9AM.
