Musicians and Comedians ‘Stand Up and Rock’ for Crisis

Weller will be playing his full live set showcasing some of his most iconic songs from down the years right up to his acclaimed Wake Up the Nation album.

Stand Up and Rock comes as Crisis at Christmas marks its 40th anniversary. Since 1972 the charity has provided vital services for homeless and vulnerably housed people. All proceeds from the gig will go towards Crisis’ life changing services at Crisis at Christmas and year-round in its Skylight centres across the country.

Joining the musicians and comedians on stage will be The Choir With No Name, an acclaimed choir made up of homeless people and others on the fringes of society, including clients of Crisis, who last performed for the charity alongside Coldplay in 2010.

Leslie Morphy, Chief Executive of Crisis, said: "We’re really excited to have such an incredible array of stars signed up for Stand Up and Rock for our 40th anniversary. Crisis at Christmas has provided vital services for homeless and vulnerably housed people for 40 years. Whilst we should celebrate the lives helped and changed, it is a scandal that homelessness still exists and that we are still needed at all."

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 4 November at www.gigsandtours.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk. Both standing and seated tickets are available ranging from £39.50 to £75.00.
