Muse have announced that they will be live streaming their forthcoming gig at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire.

The 2013 BRIT Awards Concert headlined by Muse will be streamed for free at youtube.com/warchildmuse on February 18 from 9.30pm GMT. After tickets sold out for the gig in under three minutes, this will be an opportunity for fans who missed out on a ticket to see all the action as it happens.

The band will take to the stage at the 02 Shepherd's Bush Empire on February 18 - two days before this year's Brit Awards bash takes place. Special guests for the intimate one-off show are still to be announced.

The concert marks the 20th anniversary of the War Child charity, which is receiving a special recognition award at this year's Brits. Muse follow in the footsteps of Coldplay, The Killers, Blur and Kasabian, who have all performed at War Child's Brit Awards concert in previous years.

Muse's Matt Bellamy said in a statement: "We are proud to have a continuing association with War Child, who have been doing amazing work over the last 20 years. It's great to see their efforts being recognised at this year's Brits and we are really looking forward to playing this special show for them."
