A BAND lined up to play at Reading Festival are giving their audience a chance to pick the tracks they play at an intimate charity gig in London.
Muse will play at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Saturday, August 19 to raise money for a charity that provides homeless and vulnerable people with vital resources to help them avoid the streets.
The Passage is London’s largest voluntary sector resource centre for those who need an extra helping hand in life.
Ticket holders will be able to choose ten of their favourite Muse tracks and all votes submitted will be collated and used to curate the set on the night.
This August will see Muse headline Reading and Leeds for the third time in their career and tickets for the intimate show will go on sale at 9am on Friday, July 6, with all profits going to The Passage.
Matt Bellamy, lead vocalist, guitarist, pianist and principal song-writer for the band, 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 out 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 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.”
