Them Crooked Vultures aid sick friend with extra London show

Band will play O2 Academy Brixton next month

Them Crooked Vultures are coming to the aid of a sick friend by putting on a special London show.

The supergroup will play the O2 Academy Brixton on July 5, in addition to their scheduled festival appearances.

The show is being put on in aid of Josh Homme‘s friend and collaborator Brian O’Connor, best known as the bass player in Eagles Of Death Metal. O’Connor has been diagnosed with cancer and does not have medical insurance.
