Top line up for Crisis Presents gig at Hammersmith Apollo
Paul Weller, Miles Kane and a very special guest (TBA) will headline the Hammersmith Apollo on Wednesday 19 December, at a gig hosted by Ben Elton in aid of Crisis at Christmas.
Following the success of last year’s event, Stand Up and Rock, Paul Weller will again be headlining with top UK act Miles Kane and a very special guest artist still to be announced.
Ben Elton, a long term Crisis supporter will host the evening and audiences will also be treated to a performance by singers and musicians from Crisis Skylight London, which supports homeless and vulnerably housed people.Homelessness is rising nationally after years of declining trends and this year a 43% increase was recorded in the number of people seen sleeping rough on London's streets.
Crisis has launched the Homelessness Kills campaign after new research revealed that homeless people die 30 years before the national average, at just 47 - a shocking statistic that has not improved in the last two decades.
Proceeds from Crisis Presents will fund the charity’s life-changing Crisis at Christmas project and its year-round Crisis Skylight centres at locations across the UK.
