From Planet Rock.
Manic Street Preachers will play two huge concerts at Cardiff Motorpoint Arena in the run-up to Christmas as a thank you to the NHS for their brave work during the coronavirus pandemic.
The first of Manic Street Preachers’ two gigs takes place on Friday 4th December 2020 and entrance will be completely free for all NHS workers.
The second concert on Saturday 5th December will be open to the general public with all proceeds from ticket sales going directly to NHS charities.
Manic Street Preachers said: “We wanted to do something to show our appreciation, love and respect for the NHS and its amazing brave workers. One free show and one fundraising show seemed the best way for us to express our deep gratitude for all their heroic work.”
“It’s an easy way to respond to the crisis for somebody that plays music, I suppose,” frontman James Dean Bradfield added to the BBC.
“In a universal way, we’ve all got a stake in the NHS, we’ve all got a connection to the NHS… and they do such an incredibly hard job, and it has just become harder.”
the Manics have announced 2 shows at the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena on 4th & 5th Dec 2020.
The first night will be a free show for NHS staff, the second, tickets on sale to the public, with all profits going to NHS Wales charities.
Tickets available on Friday 10th April @ 7pm.

MANIC STREET PREACHERS Postcards From A Young Man (2010 UK Deluxe Mementos Edition MULTI-FORMAT Boxset - Ten albums into their life's work, it would be wrong to say that the Manic Street Preachers are raging against the dying of the light.'Postcards From A Young Man' comes after the acclaimed 'Journal For Plague Lovers', a record of steely intent and corrosive power on which every lyric was taken from the final folder of work left by former member Richey Edwards just prior tohis disappearance in 1995. That album in turn was a typically stark and startling follow-up to 2007s triumphantly resurgent 'Send Away The Tigers', an album that gave new heart to their global faithful. 'Postcards...' may be their best yet. Defiantly, unapologetically bold and forthright and communicative, it makes the head swim with both the thrill of its tunes and its theories [always a heady Manics mix] and burns with that raging melancholia that has always been unique to them. This boxset comprises the 12-track CD album including the single '[It's Not War] Just The End Of Love' and a guest appearance by Echo & The Bunnymen's Ian McCulloch, Bonus DVD featuring Making Of and In Studio footage, Bonus 13-track CASSETTE containing demo versions of all 12 album tracks and the exclusive original Nicky Wire demo of '[It's Not War] Just The End Of Love'. Presented in deluxe packaging complete with the 42-page 'Notes Words Lists Ideas Stuff Inspiration' Scrapbook including handwritten lyrics, lists and notes plus exclusive band photos!) **Strictly Limited to 1000 Copies ONLY**
