Bastille announce Grenfell Tower charity benefit show

They'll play a stripped back set at Bush Hall next Tuesday.

Bastille have announced that they will play a benefit show to raise funds for those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

The London band will play a stripped back set at Bush Hall next Tuesday, featuring on a line-up that also includes Metronomy’s Olugbenga and The Boxer Rebellion.

Announcing the show on Twitter, the band wrote: “In light of the Grenfell tragedy last week we’re part of a small show at @BushHallMusic to help raise money for @Shelter’s work.”

Tickets go on sale at 1PM today, costing £50 per person.

The show comes as the UK continues to rally round in support of those affected by the devastating Grenfell Tower blaze – which has claimed the lives of over 70 people.

Yesterday, Adele went to Chelsea Fire Station to meet the brave firefighters who tackled the blaze – posing alongside them.

Posting on Facebook, firefighter Rob Petty said: “Not everyday the wonderfully grounded and caring Adele pops into Chelsea Firestation for a cup of tea and a cuddle. X”

A charity single organised by Simon Cowell is also set to be recorded tomorrow to raise funds.

The song is a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water and features a star-studded line-up including the likes of Carl Barat, Emeli Sande, Rita Ora, Craig David and One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson.
