Ben Knowles, Director of Music at War Child says: "We are delighted that our friends Kasabian are again supporting War Child with this small concert at a huge time for the band - getting to see their Glastonbury-scale set in the intimate confines of O2 Shepherds Bush Empire will be very exciting. The generosity of the band, their team and the fans who buy tickets or donate will directly help change and save the lives of the most vulnerable children suffering the brutal effects of war."
Tom Meighan from Kasabian adds: "That children suffer in war is unacceptable, and it's important that War Child are there to do something about it. We couldn't be happier to again help them in their vital work with a concert we're really looking forward to. We hope Kasabian fans will support War Child at this event, or by donating to War Child."
