Duran Duran, Bastille, Ride To Play War Child 2015

Duran Duran, Bastille and a stripped back Ride will perform in 300 capacity venues for War Child’s Back To The Bars shows in February.

The War Child Back To The Bars shows have been an annual event for the past 10 years in the UK. They raise money for children effected by war in Iraq, Syria and Gaza.

Ben Knowles, War Child’s Director of Music said, “2014 saw more people displaced by war than any year since World War 2. It is a global emergency. These child refugees have no passports. They don’t get to choose where war sends them. The support of these bands and the generosity of music fans can send them hope.”

In a statement, Duran Duran’s John Taylor said, “Thousands of children are innocent victims in the war zones of adult conflict around the world. They are often being denied education and other basic human rights. We are looking forward to performing an exclusive event in London this coming February, in support of War Child and the important work they do in the regions where these children are suffering.

The show will mark Duran Duran’s first live appearance since they recently completed their next album with Nile Rodgers.

“This past year we have spent most of our time in the studio working on new songs, so we are very much looking forward to getting back onto a London stage for this special appearance,” he said.

Information on how to obtain tickets for the War Child Back To The Bars shows will be announced in coming days. To register for information visit www.warchild.org.uk/passport
