Paul Heaton And Jacqui Abbott To Play Free NHS Concert

Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbot have announced they will play a free show for NHS staff working on the frontline of the coronavirus pandemic.

The duo, who recently scored a number one album with Manchester Calling, are giving away 9,000 tickets for the show in Nottingham in October.

All NHS staff, including “doctors, nurses, support workers, porters and cleaners”, will be welcome.

Hospital staff “can never be thanked enough”, said Heaton in a statement.

“The coronavirus pandemic should remind everyone, and let no-one forget, that our National Health Service is the most brilliant and significant institution in our lives.

“We are just musicians, so there is little we can do but sing for you.

“From the porters, the cleaners and the drivers, to the doctors and the nurses; thank you.”

The show will take place at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena on Tuesday 13 October.

Tickets will be made available from Tuesday 31 March and will be limited to two per person. Concertgoers will need to bring a valid NHS or Primary Care Trust ID card when they attend the show.

Oasis reunion?

Heaton and Abbott, who were formerly members of the Beautiful South, are not the only musicians offering support to the NHS.

Liam Gallagher has even floated the idea of a one-off Oasis reunion in aid of frontline workers.

“Sick of pleading, begging, etc,” he wrote on Twitter in a message apparently aimed at brother and former bandmate Noel. “I demand an Oasis reunion after this is all over, all money going to NHS. C’mon, you know.”
