Elsewhere, other free gigs for NHS staff members have been announced by Rick Astley and Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott.

Astley will perform at Manchester Arena on October 28, 2020, in a gig for all NHS frontline, Primary Care and emergency services staff. Those who secure tickets must bring the original copy of their staff ID to the show and the name on their ID must match the name of the person who made the booking.

Heaton and Abbott, formerly of The Beautiful South, will play Nottingham Arena on October 13, and Heaton shared a message for fans alongside the gig announcement.








“The men and women who serve us and care for us, give us hope and sacrifice 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 frontline NHS staff.

“From the porters, the cleaners and the drivers, to the doctors and the nurses; thank you.”
