Stand Up and Rock!

by Shell 1st Nov 2011 | 6 comments


Paul Weller, Tim, Graham Coxon and Jo Brand will headline Stand Up and Rock: an exciting music and comedy gig in aid of Crisis on Tuesday 20 December 2011, at the Hammersmith Apollo, London. The event will be hosted by Ross Noble.

Crisis is the national charity for single homeless people, working to end homelessness by campaigning and providing essential services and opportunities to meet individual needs. Stand Up and Rock comes as Crisis at Christmas is marking its 40th year of providing a warm, safe place to stay for tens of thousands of homeless and vulnerably housed people. Crisis at Christmas not only provides immediate help for homeless people over this critical time, but it sets them up for a better year ahead.

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. If you didn’t click the links above then more gig details and information about Crisis can be found here.

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

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. Crisis will be asking gig-goers to sign up to a new campaign, No one turned away, calling for the Government to strengthen the law so no one is forced to sleep rough.

Tim: “Stand Up and Rock for Crisis is going to be an amazing night. Such a unique mix of acts, and a huge milestone for this brilliant charity. Can’t wait.”

Great reason to hold the gig. I’ll dig down deep to see if I can get there. Please come to the Sage Gateshead, that’s the Sage Gateshead, just incase I wasn’t clear, the Sage Gateshead. I went all the way to Aberdeen to see you Tim, and yes it was the best gig I’ve been to and I’ve ordered the DVD, but if you get the chance come to the Sage Gateshead, it’s got brilliant accoustics and we Geordies would like to see you again. Ask Ross.

If Tim’s there, i would love to be too. Better start saving up my pocket money now. That’d be such a Christmas treat for me and a great cause! :D

Seeing as the money will be going to the homeless, who need it so desperately at this time of year (what will you be doing on Xmas day?), and not the artists, I think its actually quite a fair price for a night of fabo laughs and entertainment.

Blimey you have to be rich to afford a ticket. Would have loved to have been there but can’t afford it.
