It’s was such a great night. Three awesome bands back to back, it was like being at a festival! I don’t think I’ve enjoyed a support band that much since New Found Glory preceded Green Day 🙂

A few days ago, IDLES announced that they would be offering free tickets to NHS workers for their Eden Project show.
The show was part of the Cornish attraction’s ‘Eden Sessions’, a series of live music concerts held annually at Eden. This year’s sessions include performances from Royal Blood, Snow Patrol, McFly, Ben Howard and The Script.
“As a ‘thank you’ for their heroic work during the pandemic, we’re offering NHS workers (& their guests) free tickets to our @edensessionsofficial gig on Saturday 18 September,” IDLES wrote in an Instagram post.
The band’s gig was originally postponed last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The festival is being curated by Creation Records co-founder Alan McGee, and had been set to debut this year before coronavirus-enforced restrictions forced its cancellation.
