On Tuesday December 20th at the Hammersmith Apollo, Paul Weller will join a host of stars from the world of music and comedy to perform at Stand Up and Rock: a music and comedy gig in aid of homelessness charity Crisis. Weller will be performing a full live show while there will also be appearances from Graham Coxon, Tim Minchin, Jo Brand and Ross Noble.
The night will help mark the 40th anniversary of Crisis at Christmas and all proceeds will go towards helping the charity continue its life changing services. Since 1972, Crisis has provided vital services for homeless and vulnerably housed people.
Speaking about the show, Weller said: “It’ll be good to get on stage for Crisis again. In hard times like these more and more people need their help so I’m happy to support Stand Up and Rock as Crisis at Christmas turns 40.”
