Coldplay will host Under 1 Roof, a benefit concert in support of the charity Kids Company at the O2 Arena in Greenwich, London, on December 10.
The band will join stars such as Tinie Tempah, Emeli Sandé, Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan at the show to raise money for the charity, which with vulnerable children and young people in some of the most deprived areas of London.
“Kids Company is a phenomenal organisation that is very close to our hearts,” says Chris Martin and the band. “We hope that people get behind the event to raise as much money for Kids Company as possible. On our side, we can promise anyone that buys a ticket that they’ll be part of a very special night.”
“Coldplay’s continuing support is fantastic,” adds Kids Company Founder and CEO, Camila Batmanghelidjh. “They have already provided funds to help thousands of children who have suffered violence and neglect. How amazing that they are now being joined by other generous friends for Under 1 Roof, to establish what we hope will become a regular event, generating vital support for many more children in years to come.”
