Tickets on sale for Greg Gilbert benefit gig

Tickets are now on sale for a benefit concert for Delays' frontman Greg Gilbert. 

Father-of-two Gilbert, 39, has been diagnosed with stage four bowel cancer which has spread to his lungs. His family say he needs to travel overseas to undergo urgent treatment unavailable to him on the NHS and have been bidding to raise money via a Crowdfunding page. To date, a total of £134,182 has been raised by 5,586 people in 22 days. 

The band's former lighting designer Ed Warren is organising the fundraising night - Cavalry (named after a Delays' lyric) - which will take place at the 850-capacity 1865 in Gilbert's home city of Southampton on February 17. The night will feature acoustic sets from Mystery Jets and Band Of Skulls, members of Delays with Primal Scream bassist Simone Marie, Sam Duckworth, The Diamond Age and Thomas Tantrum, with more special guests to be announced. 

Tickets cost £30 and are available here
