Legendary Inide/Britpop band The Charlatans have announced they will perform at The Royal Albert Hall on Friday October 18th in memory and celebration of their drummer Jon Brookes who sadly passed away recently after fighting cancer since 2010. Proceeds from the event will be donated to The Brain Tumour Charity.
"Following the loss of our much missed friend and drummer, Jon Brookes, we, together with some friends, are putting on a show at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday 18th October 2013. The show will benefit The Brain Tumour Charity, which Jon was involved with during his illness. It's our way of raising money for research into and awareness of a cancer that will unfortunately affect many lives as it has ours. We look forward to seeing you at the RAH and making it a night to remember." - The Charlatans
The line-up will include James Dead Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers), The Chemical Brothers (DJ set), Liam Gallagher, members of The Vaccines and New Order, and Dumb.
