Muse to play show in support of The Big Issue

We are incredibly excited to announce that rock titans Muse will play a gig in support of The Big Issue in May.

Global rock icons Muse are set to play a landmark show in support of The Big Issue on 10 May, playing London’s Eventim Apollo with support from Razorlight.

“We’re delighted to have the opportunity to work with Muse and Razorlight for this one-off event that helps to mark The Big Issue’s 30th anniversary,” said Russell Blackman, managing director of commercial for The Big Issue. “It is an event that will raise vital income so that we can continue to support the most marginalised in society through our frontline services, across the UK.”

The last full Muse tour, taking in global stadia, came in 2019. Muse will also play on 9 May in a show fundraising for War Child, to help those affected by the war in Ukraine and other conflict zones, and for Médecins Sans Frontières for its ongoing work in Ukraine and the world’s greatest crises.

Tickets for the shows go on sale at 10am on Wednesday 30 March.

James Kliffen, head of fundraising at Médecins Sans Frontières said: “Muse’s support couldn’t have come at a more crucial time as our staff around the world face unprecedented challenges. In half a century of providing emergency aid, the last two years have been by far the most challenging.”

Rob Williams, chief executive of War Child, added: “There were 10.7 million children in Ukraine on 23 February, the day before the invasion. At least 4 million of those are now sleeping wherever they can find shelter either in bunkers, in the countryside, in transit or in another country altogether. The psycho-social impact of this war will affect an entire generation of children and there will be acutely vulnerable children who need carefully managed support to stay safe and navigate this upheaval. War Child is specifically designed to provide this kind of help. The money raised by Muse will make sure that we can respond quickly to children who need support.
