JAMES are proud to announce an intimate and special one-off charity show at MANCHESTER ALBERT HALL on MONDAY 18 DECEMBER.
AN INTIMATE EVENING WITH JAMES PLUS SPECIAL GUESTS will raise money for the WE LOVE MANCHESTER EMERGENCY FUND, an aid set up to help support people in the wake of the Manchester terror attack this summer. Special guests will be announced in the coming weeks for this unique and intimate show.
The band said: “We are very happy to announce this benefit gig that we have been trying to make happen since the atrocity took place. Please excuse our tardiness. We intend to make a memorable night of this intimate gig. With love, James.”
The MANCHESTER EMERGENCY FUND supports people who were injured or bereaved in the attack on 22 May 2017 and profits from ticket sales will help alleviate suffering for victims and their families to ensure they do not also suffer financial difficulties after the turmoil of the attack.
Tickets for the concert go on sale TUESDAY 31 OCTOBER from http://gigst.rs/JAMES
