Liam Gallagher announces free concert for UK healthcare workers

Liam Gallagher will perform a free show for UK National Health Service employees in London this fall.

The October 29 event at the O2 Arena will feature the singer “plus special guests” as he offers his personal thanks to members of the British healthcare industry for their efforts during the ongoing pandemic.

“They do an incredible job,” says Gallagher, “we are very lucky to have them.”

Tickets will be available Wednesday, April 15 at 9 AM local time via The O2 website.

Only NHS staff and NHS contract staff who work in NHS hospitals in the United Kingdom will be eligible to apply for tickets.

Tickets are limited to 2 per person (the eligible NHS staff member and one guest); ticket holders must bring their valid NHS ID or Primary Care Trust ID card (original format, no photocopies) to the event, or details of employment if NHS contract staff.

“Your NHS ID must match the name on your ticket or admission will be refused,” say event organizers. “If you are allocated more than one ticket, your guest must be with you at the time of entry.

“If you secure tickets and you no longer able to attend or you secure tickets in error as you are not NHS staff, please contact the ticket provider immediately to arrange for cancellation of these tickets to enable other NHS staff the opportunity to be allocated tickets.”

Gallagher will release his appearance on MTV Unplugged on April 24; the rocker was captured in performance alongside the 24-piece Urban Soul Orchestra at Hull City Hall last August for the series, where he delivered a mix of solo cuts and Oasis classics.

The Hull show was part of a tour in support of Gallagher’s 2019 release, “Why Me? Why Not”, which topped the UK charts upon its release last fall.
