Take That have announced a special one-off show in support of War Child on Wednesday 21st June. Iconic London venue KOKO will play host to the most intimate performance from the band in years, as they perform songs from their legendary three-decade spanning music catalogue. The show is in aid of War Child and will support their work with children whose lives have been torn apart by war.
Tickets are on sale at 10am on Friday 9th June from lnk.to/TakeThatLDN.
This show marks another moment in a special year for Take That, which has so far seen them headline the King’s Coronation Concert in May; release a rework of hit single, ‘Greatest Day’ with GRAMMY award winning DJ and music producer Robin Schulz and featuring multi-platinum selling singer songwriter Calum Scott; the upcoming release of ‘Greatest Days’, starring Aisling Bea, Jayde Adams and more; and a headline performance at British Summer Time in Hyde Park on 1st July. The band are also working on new music, which will come later this year.
War Child’s work that aims to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and stay to support them through their recovery – keeping them safe, helping them learn and cope with their experiences, and equipping them with skills for the future.
War Child UK is the only specialist charity for children affected by conflict. For more than two decades they’ve been driven by a single goal – for no child’s life to be torn apart by war. They aim to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and stay to support them through their recovery – keeping them safe, helping them learn and cope with their experiences, and equipping them with skills for the future. They understand children’s needs, respect their rights, and put them at the centre of the solution and campaign for changes to policies and practices to support children in conflict, working with children and young people themselves to demand their rights. Together with their partners they deliver vital, life-saving work in 16 countries across Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and Latin America.
