British band Kasabian have announced a gig to benefit War Child.

The rockers will hit the stage at London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on June 18 to raise money for the charity, which works across the world to help children in war zones.

“That children suffer in war is unacceptable, and it’s important that War Child are there to do something about it,” said Kasabian singer Tom Meighan. “We couldn’t be happier to again help them in their vital work with a concert we’re really looking forward to. We hope Kasabian fans will support War Child at this event, or by donating to War Child.”

Kasabian’s new album 48:13 is released on 9 June. This intimate concert is their only London show and comes three days before their huge homecoming show in Leicester and ten days before their headline slot at Glastonbury.

Ben Knowles, Director of Music at War Child UK said: “Getting to see Kasabian’s Glastonbury-scale set in the intimate confines of O2 Shepherds Bush Empire will be very exciting.”

The band are no strangers to supporting War Child – they brought the house down at War Child’s 2010 BRITS gig, taking to the stage just hours after walking away with the award for Best British Group.

The generosity of the band, their team and the fans who buy tickets or donate will directly help to change and save the lives of the most vulnerable children suffering the brutal effects of war.

Tickets to this special event are £50 and go on sale on Friday 30 May at 9am from
