Muse have announced they will perform a live show at The O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Saturday August 19 in aid of The Passage, London’s biggest voluntary sector centre for homeless and vulnerable people.
The show comes before Muse’s headline sets at Reading & Leeds Festivals.
Billed as a ‘By Request’ show, ticket holders will be able to select up to ten of their favorite Muse songs and all votes submitted will be counted and used to make the set on the night.
Muse frontman Matt Bellamy said: “We have admired The Passage’s work for a while now. Their work is vital to the community in London. We are looking forward to doing our bit to help the amazing staff and volunteers and the homeless people who benefit from their tireless hard work.”
Mick Clarke, CEO of The Passage said: "The Passage is really grateful that Muse are doing a doing a concert to raise money for, and awareness of, the vital work we do to end homelessness for those who come to our doors. It is frighteningly easy to end up on the street and this concert helps ensure that The Passage will be there for those who have nowhere else to turn to."
Tickets for the show will go on sale at 9am on Friday (July 6), with all profits going to The Passage. Muse fan club members and Reading & Leeds ticket holders will have access to an exclusive presale 48 hours in advance.
