“We’re incredibly pleased to report that the ticket sales and auctions for Coldplay’s upcoming “Hidden Gigs” in Liverpool and Newcastle have raised over £238,645 for Crisis, the national charity for single homeless people. A huge thanks to all of you who helped towards this amazing total," says a message on the band’s website. “Leslie Morphy, Chief Executive of Crisis, said: ‘The incredible £238,645 raised by Coldplay fans this week will help us to support the thousands of hidden homeless people, who are all too often forgotten, especially at Christmas which can be a particularly lonely and isolating time. We now look forward to the gigs in December and hope they will raise further awareness of the huge issue of hidden homelessness in the UK.’”
The exact venues of the gigs – which are to highlight homelessness and will take place on December 19 and 20 – will be kept secret until you buy tickets, when you will be sent a text and an email telling you where to go.
