Bombay Bicycle Club are set to play a one off show at London's historic KOKO venue in aid of Freedom from Torture.
With the current climate being so hostile to guitar music, the enormous success of Bombay Bicycle Club is an achievement in itself. Recently packing out Alexandra Palace, the band are now reaching into the world of arena tours.
So news of a show at London's KOKO venue should get fans excited. Set to perform in the beautiful building, Bombay Bicycle Club will be joined by Trophy Wife and Dan Croll for the one off show on December 22nd.
A quick quote from Jack Steadman: “We are really pleased to be part of this festival to support victims of torture and raise awareness of Freedom from Torture’s incredible work.”
Trophy Wife were also quick to express their excitement at the show, with Kit Montith commenting: “We’re looking forward to playing this gig at KOKO with Bombay Bicycle Club for Freedom from Torture. We are extremely proud to support the charity and their work providing survivors of torture with the specialist help they so desperately need.”
Marika Chaplais, Freedom from Torture’s events fundraiser, said: ”We are thrilled Bombay Bicycle Club , Trophy Wife and Dan Croll are taking a stand against torture and raising vital funds for our work. We want people to come to KOKO to hear the brilliant music and learn about our work to help and support survivors of torture and to raise awareness of its devastating impact".
“Everyone who buys a ticket for this event will positively impact on the lives of torture survivors as we help them to rebuild their lives.”
The show is the culmination of a live music series organised by Freedom from Torture, focussing on London and Manchester around International Human Rights Day on December 10th.
