Muse have announced that they will play a one-off intimate show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire where fans will be able to have a say on the setlist.
The gig is in aid of The Passage, London’s largest voluntary sector resource centre for homeless and vulnerable people.
“We have admired The Passage’s work for a while now,” says frontman Matt Bellamy. “Their work is vital to the community in London. We are looking forward to doing our bit to help the amazing staff and volunteers and the homeless people who benefit from their tireless hard work.”
The show is “By Request”, meaning ticket holders can choose their top ten tracks and all votes submitted will be collated and used to curate the set on the night.
Due to take place on the 19th of August, this gig also acts as a warm up for their impending Reading and Leeds festival headline slot happening over bank holiday weekend. Tickets for the intimate show at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire will go on sale at 9am on Friday 7 July, with all profits going to The Passage.
