Manic Street Preachers to play two Cardiff Arena shows for NHS

Welsh rock outfit Manic Street Preachers have revealed that they will be performing two shows at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena to raise money for the NHS.

The first night will be a free concert for NHS staff only, and the second will be open to anyone with all proceeds going to the UK health service.

The concerts will be the band’s only UK shows this year and will take place on the 4th and 5th December.

In an official statement, the band said: “We wanted to do something to show our appreciation, love and respect for the NHS and its amazing brave workers. One free show and one fundraising show seemed the best way for us to express our deep gratitude for all their heroic work.”

Tickets for both shows will be available from 7pm on Friday the 10th April and can be purchased here.
