Gang of Youths to play London in support of BRITs Week War Child shows

Before they head down to New Zealand and Australia next month, Gang of Youths will play an intimate charity show in London. It’ll happen on February 17th and is part of the BRITs Week War Child series that runs through much of February.

The Gang of Youths gig has an interesting twist, too: It’s happening at a relatively new club/music venue called Omeara, which is owned by none other than Ben Lovett, the keyboardist from Mumford & Sons.

There are two ways to get tickets:

  • Visit and make a £5 donation to be part of the ticket draw. You can make as many donations as you want to increase your chances of scoring a ticket. The window for this is open now and runs through end of day on February 3.
  • A limited number of tickets will be available through direct sale starting this Friday, January 17. Go to for more information on that.

According to Radio X, last year’s War Child charity shows raised about £500K for children impacted by war.

I suppose we should also mention that the promotional graphic for this show (above) is the first new band photo we’ve seen since Joji left the band in October … which makes you wonder whether the newest band member will be part of this show and the others happening in February. Things that make you go “Hmmmmmm….”
