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.
Life after The Beautiful South
“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.”
