Scottish indie legends Belle & Sebastian will be curating a special benefit gig for Save the Children at the Clyde Auditorium on November 2, 2015. All profits from the event will go to support Save the Children’s Child Refugee Crisis Appeal.
The Glasgow band will be inviting a host of special guests to the event raising funds for the refugee crisis.
Belle & Sebastian said: “Belle and Sebastian, humbly, and with a good will, wish to stand behind the displaced peoples of Syria in their brave attempt to find a better life in Europe. If governments won’t help them, then the people must. Rock on.”
Neil Mathers, Save the Children’s Head of Scotland said: “We are very excited and thankful that Belle and Sebastian and their friends have organised this amazing gig to support our Child Refugee Crisis Appeal.”
He added, “This is a great opportunity to raise vital funds to support our work on the ground and tell people about the desperate situations and life-threatening journeys that children and families are making to find refuge from the violence in Syria.
“People across Scotland have shown incredible generosity and compassion in how they have responded to this crisis. We hope that thousands of people will turn out on the November 2 to support Save the Children’s Child Refugee Crisis Appeal, and of course enjoy a brilliant live show in the process”
The event will be on general on sale October 2, with Belle & Sebastian also playing a warm-up gig at The Alahambra Theatre, Dunfermline on November 1, 2015.
Tickets for both shows will be available from www.gigsinscotland.com or 0844 999 990. Full bill to be announced in the coming months.
