We’re extremely pleased to announce that our charity patrons, Muse, will be playing this year’s War Child BRITs Show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Monday 18th February, continuing over a decade of support for the charity.
This year marks War Child’s 20th Anniversary and will see the BRIT Awards pay tribute to the charity’s amazing work with the first Special Recognition Award at the ceremony on February 20th.
This will be a very special, one-off, intimate show from a band currently gracing massive arenas on their US tour. This summer Muse return to the UK to play Coventry’s Ricoh Stadium, London’s Emirates Stadium and Manchester’s Etihad Stadium. The group first supported War Child in 2002 and as recently as October 2012 when they launched their album with a charity show at London’s Roundhouse, with all proceeds going to War Child, The Roundhouse 11-25 Creative Programme and The Helen Foundation.</br>
“We are proud to have a continuing association with War Child, who have been doing amazing work over the last 20 years.”
– Matt Bellamy
The band will also be performing live at this year’s ceremony, which takes place two days later at London’s O2 Arena, on Wednesday February 20. Muse have been nominated for British Group and British Live Act at this year’s BRIT Awards.
So congratulations to War Child for 20 years good work. And good luck to MUSE at the Brits!
