Kasabian, La Roux, Calvin Harris to play London War Child gig

Acts set for post-BRIT Awards gig on February 16

Kasabian, La Roux and Calvin Harris are set to play a gig in aid of War Child next month in London.

That acts will all appear at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on February 16 – with the gig starting directly after the BRIT Awards, which take place in the UK capital on the same night.

All profits from the gig will go to aid War Child‘s work, helping children in war zones across the world.

Kasabian praised the charity, saying, “War Child‘s work is absolutely vital. Simple! They have done so many beautiful things and to help raise money for them to extend the reach of their amazing work is a huge honour. It will be an inspirational night all round!”

War Child now hold an annual BRITs after-party, with last year’s event featuring performances from The Killers and Coldplay, along with special guest appearances from Gary Barlow and Bono.

Tickets go on sale at 9am (GMT) on February 3. See Warchild.org.uk for more information.
