Paul Weller, Miles Kane and a very special guest (TBA) will headline the Hammersmith Apollo on Wednesday 19th December, at a gig hosted by Ben Elton in aid of homelessness charity Crisis.
Following the success of last year's event, Paul Weller will again be headlining with top UK act Miles Kane and a very special guest artist still to be announced.
Ben Elton, a long term Crisis supporter will host the evening and audiences will also be treated to a performance by singers and musicians from Crisis Skylight London, one of the Crisis regional centres helping homeless people transform their lives.
Homelessness is rising nationally after years of declining trends and this year a 43% increase was recorded in the number of people seen sleeping rough on London's streets.
Crisis has launched the Homelessness Kills campaign after new research for the charity revealed that homeless people die 30 years before the national average, at just 47 - a shocking statistic that has not improved in the last two decades.
Proceeds from Crisis Presents will fund the charity's life-changing Crisis at Christmas project and its year-round Crisis Skylight centres at locations across the UK.
Paul Weller said: 'I'm looking forward to getting on stage for Crisis again ' these are really tough times and we need organisations like Crisis now more than ever."
Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 26 October and both standing and seated here.
