Concert For Ukraine

Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello, Emeli Sandé, Becky Hill, Gregory Porter, Manic Street Preachers and Snow Patrol are among the acts who will perform at next week’s Concert For Ukraine fundraiser.

Announced last week, the two hour show will take place at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham and be broadcast by ITV and STV on 29 Mar. Money raised – including all income from sponsorship and advertising – will be donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. Tickets are on sale now.

“My heart is breaking for the people of Ukraine”, says Cabello. “As refugees from Ukraine join millions of other displaced people around the globe, we all have a responsibility. One of the biggest needs is to get funds to organisations who can serve these communities directly, so we’re focusing our efforts on doing that as quickly as we can”.

Sandé adds: “I will be singing to try to help every human being forced to flee their home and in solidarity with those being racially discriminated against even within this humanitarian crisis. Nobody should be refused access to relief, aid and the right to cross the border to safety, and I’m pleased for the chance to support the DEC’s appeal to help all people whose lives have been affected by the conflict”.

Other acts confirmed to perform are Nile Rodgers & Chic, The Kingdom Choir and Tom Odell, while Roman Kemp, Marvin Humes and Emma Bunton are set to host the show.

You can purchase tickets to be at the event itself here. Otherwise, it’ll be broadcast live on ITV, STV, ITV Hub and STV Player on 29 Mar.
