‘Hidden’ Crisis gig

Post by snifferdog »

Heh. David's Blogger person finally gets something newsworthy to post about :twisted:
‘Hidden’ Crisis gig

Some good news for some of you.

David will be performing as a special guest of Amadou & Mariam, a well-known duo from Mali, at a one-off show at a secret venue somewhere in central London on Monday 25 May - all proceeds going to Crisis, the charity for the homeless.

The venue will be revealed to ticket holders by text or e-mail the day before the show. The venue is to be kept ‘hidden’ until this time for good reason: to draw attention to the uncertain reality of the UK’s hidden homeless.

Tickets are now on sale, available online from See Tickets or by telephoning +44 (0)871 2200260.

Tickets are priced at £25 (plus a booking/delivery fee of £2.75).

The first two rows are designated ‘VIP Seats’. These will also go on sale tomorrow, priced at £75 per ticket (plus the relevant fees). There are just 10 seats in each row, so that’s 20 tickets in total. If you want one, you’ll have to be quick.

VIP tickets come with a goody bag, the contents of which are still being decided, but should include a commemorative Crisis T-shirt, a copy of the four-disc version of ‘Live in Gdańsk’, as well as Amadou & Mariam’s latest CD, ‘Welcome to Mali’.

Have a listen to their “Afro-pop blues” at MySpace.

Said David: “I met Amadou and Mariam at the Mojo Awards, where we expressed mutual respect for each others’ music, so it was a wonderful surprise when they called recently, inviting me to collaborate with them on this special one-off occasion for Crisis. I’m looking forward to breaking down a few musical boundaries in the cause of helping the homeless.”

More of Crisis’ ‘hidden’ gigs will take place across London until 17 June.

Good question. It's like one of those mystery tours. To steal Bran's phraseology, I hope somebody RECORDS it.

Perhaps they will do it in Starbucks or something. Somewhere small. Is Brixton Academy small and still going? I think so.

I think it will be far smaller than Brixton Academy. My guess is that it will not be too far away from Camden.

Could you do me a favour and let me know the venue and other such details when you get them? I will stick them up in the news section of the site.

I was just looking on Col T's forum and somebody there who got a ticket just got a text saying where it would be. Apparently it's in the Union Chapel in Islington. Don't blame me if this information is wrong :twisted:

If true, that would be an excellent little venue!

I shall wait until the official confirmation of where it is before I broadcast it on the site. People find out tomorrow who have tickets.
