Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott will play a free show for 9,000 NHS frontline and auxiliary staff at the Nottingham Motorpoint Arena on October 13.
Says Heaton: “The Coronavirus pandemic should remind everyone, and let no-one forget, that our National Health Service is the most brilliant and significant institution in our lives. The men and women who serve us and care for us, give us hope and sacrifice for their own wellbeing, can never be thanked enough. We are just musicians, so there is little we can do but sing for you. By way of appreciation, we announce the following gig for all the frontline NHS staff. From the porters, the cleaners and the drivers, to the doctors and the nurses; thank you.”
Those eligible for tickets will be all NHS frontline staff that work within NHS hospitals across the United Kingdom including, but not limited to, doctors, nurses, support workers, porters and cleaners.
Tickets will be limited to two per person and will be available from Tuesday (March 31) at 7pm. Further details to follow from Paul Heaton’s official site.
