It’ll take place the night before the previously announced, sold-out Gorillaz gig at the same venue.
“Reap what you sow, y’know what I’m saying?,” virtual drummer Russel Hobbs says. “We don’t just want to say thank you, we want to do thank you too, because we care about the people who care for us.”
“This is such a big moment for us,” Steve Sayer of the O2 remarks. “Our first live show in over 500 days, with one of the UK’s best bands playing to an audience made up of NHS staff and their families.”
“We have missed the fans and live performances so much, we couldn’t be more proud to reopen with this event and to welcome such a great audience.”
