More accustomed to headlining festivals and playing vast stadia, Muse have announced a ridiculously intimate London charity show.
The Teignmouth trio will play the 2,000 capacity London Shepherd's Bush Empire on Saturday 19th August in aid of The Passage, London’s largest voluntary sector resource centre for homeless and vulnerable people.
A ‘by request’ show, ticket holders will get to vote on their ten favourite Muse tracks, and when all votes have been submitted and collated the songs with the most votes will form the basis of the setlist.
“We have admired The Passage’s work for a while now,” says Matt Bellamy. “Their work is vital to the community in London.
“We are looking forward to doing our bit to help the amazing staff and volunteers and the homeless people who benefit from their tireless hard work.”
Mick Clarke, CEO of The Passage added: "The Passage is really grateful that Muse are doing a doing a concert to raise money for, and awareness of, the vital work we do to end homelessness for those who come to our doors.
“It is frighteningly easy to end up on the street and this concert helps ensure that The Passage will be there for those who have nowhere else to turn to."
General sale tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 7th July right here. Muse fan club members and Reading & Leeds ticket holders will have access to an exclusive presale 48 hours in advance.
Last week Muse unveiled details of a charity gig at New York’s Central Park for Monday 24th July with proceeds going to The Coalition for the Homeless.
Muse are playing a string of North American festival slots and headline tour dates with Thirty Seconds To Mars and Pvris throughout July and early August.
They then return to the UK to play Belfast Vital festival on 23rd August and Leeds & Reading Festival over the Bank Holiday Weekend.
