Skepta to play show in aid of Shelter

By | Published on Wednesday 29 March 2017

Skepta will play a special one-off show at the Islington Assembly Hall on 4 Apr in aid of homelessness charity Shelter.

The 750 tickets for the gig will be available via ballot. I wonder how many will show up on Viagogo, which I’m sure likes exploiting the homeless almost as much as it enjoys exploiting teenagers with cancer. Maybe the tight turn round from ballot to gig will stop the touts.

“I am a man of the people and I can’t wait to touch down”, says the rapper of the next week’s charity show.

Shelter’s Graeme Brown adds: “Every penny raised from this very special gig will help Shelter to be there for more people and to ensure that no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own”.

You have until 10am tomorrow to put yourself forward for the ballot. Tickets for those picked will cost £40 each and be limited to four per person.
