Originally set to play two special shows at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on 4th and 5th December, Manic Street Preachers have announced that they’ll be rearranging the gigs paying tribute to NHS staff to July.
“We wanted to do something to show our appreciation, love and respect for the NHS and its amazing brave workers,” the band say. “One free show and one fundraising show seemed the best way for us to express our deep gratitude for all their heroic work. We tried our hardest to make these shows happen in December but due to the current situation have had to move them to 2021.”
Now taking place on 16th and 17th July, the first night is a free show for NHS staff and the second had tickets available to the public with all profits going to NHS Wales charities.
All tickets remain valid for the rescheduled dates but anybody who is unable to make the free show for NHS staff should contact Ticketmaster so they can be offered to another member of NHS staff.
