Paul Weller, Robert Wyatt To Play Concert For Jeremy Corbyn

PEOPLE POWERED: Concerts For Corbyn announced...

Paul Weller and Robert Wyatt are amongst the artists who are set to play the opening instalment of PEOPLE POWERED: Concerts For Corbyn.

The concert series has been pieced together by music writer Lois Wilson, live music figure Paul Phillips, and Unison Officer/Brighton Momentum Organisers Sarah Pickett and James Ellis.

The first show takes place at Brighton's Dome venue on December 16th, and features an all-star band led by Paul Weller.

Excitingly, the line up features Robert Wyatt, with the legendary singer set to come out of retirement to support Jeremy Corbyn.

Elsewhere, fans can find sets from Jim Jones And The Righteous Mind, The Farm, Stealing Sheep, Kathryn Williams, and Temples.

Organisers comment:

"Music can be a huge force for social change. Today, more than ever, it feels like we need to stand up for democracy, for fairness and equality, for our basic human rights. We feel that Jeremy Corbyn's realigning of the Labour Party towards the principles of social justice and wealth distribution, which the party was first founded on, affords the best opportunity to improve everybody's lives."

"By inviting a broad range of acts, not all of whom are known for being overtly political, to play in support of this under the banner of 'People Powered', we are saying – Speak Out! Get Involved! Fight For What You Believe In! Make Your Voice Heard! Everyone can make a difference!"

Tickets are priced at £25 and go on sale this Friday (October 14th).

PEOPLE POWERED: Concerts For Corbyn opens at Brighton Dome on December 16th.
