George Ezra has announced that he will play a show in aid of mental health charity Mind next month, at London’s Union Chapel. As well as performing himself, he will also play host to a number of still to be announced special guests.
Ezra began officially supporting Mind earlier this year, collecting donations at shows on his recent tour dates in June. He also presented a gong at the Mind Media Awards this week.
“The idea behind this event all started on tour earlier this year where we were collecting for Mind at each show”, says Ezra. “My supporters and fans helped to raise over two thousand pounds in just over two weeks, which I’m hugely grateful for. Following the response, I thought it would be great to round off the year with a special event in aid of Mind”.
He continues: “The Union Chapel is one of the most beautiful venues to play in London and the cause is a charity that I believe are doing truly great things. The night will be a warm and cosy celebration of music and community”.
Tickets for the show on 8 Dec will be available via ballot. Registration will open at georgeezra.com at 9am on Friday, and will close at 5pm on 22 Nov.
