Arctic Monkeys announce Royal Albert Hall show in aid of War Child

With their latest studio album 'Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino' already set to become one of the biggest selling album albums of the year, Arctic Monkeys have now announced their plans to perform a special one-off show at the Royal Albert Hall for War Child.

The performance is due to take place at the iconic venue on the 8th June, with all profits from the show going towards War Child UK, who operate in 15 countries across Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and Latin America providing protection, education and standing up for the rights of children caught up in conflict.

Rob Williams, CEO of War Child UK says: “We are delighted that the Arctic Monkeys will be dedicating their time and efforts to helping children affected by war by performing a show for War Child, and it is a huge honour that they have chosen to support us. The money raised from this show will allow us to continue our life-changing programmes and reach even more children who have had their lives torn apart by conflict. With 250 million children in the world today affected by war, the need is as great as ever to stand up for their rights.”

To obtain tickets the public will be invited to enter a ballot which is open from 10am today (Wednesday 16th May) until 8pm on Sunday 20th May via https://amballot.seetickets.com. It will cost £2 to enter the ballot and all proceeds go to War Child UK. The successful entrants will be notified by email on Monday 21st May and will have 24 hours to purchase their tickets.
