SJM Concerts Present Fatboy Slim A Free Concert for NHS and Blue Light Staff
Today, DJ Fatboy Slim aka Norman Cook announced a special free concert in his home town of Brighton for staff of the NHS, Ambulance and Police workers. The gig will take place on Wednesday October 28th 2020 at the city's largest venue – the Brighton Centre.
Speaking from his home in Hove Norman said;
"Recently, friends of mine who work in the NHS asked me to send a little video message to thank and cheer on the frontline troops and in it I, (half) jokingly said, we should all have a big party together when this is all over'.
Careful what you wish for, as so many people responded to the comment, I thought, 'why not?'
"By the time life returns to normal we will all want to celebrate together and, I would like to do my bit to reward and thank everyone who has been holding our lives together in these most difficult of times".
He continued, "So I extend an invitation to all NHS doctors, nurses, support workers, porters and cleaners plus all blue light staff, ambulance, police and fire service (and importantly to their plus ones) to let their hair down with me and dance off the cobwebs to rejoice in the end of this emergency".
Tickets will be available from 7pm on Friday 17th April 2020
