Maximo Park have teamed up with Blood Red Shoes, Pete and the Pirates and Mystery Jets for a very special gig at London's Forum in support of The Royal Marsden Hospital and the No Surrender Charitable Trust on May 28th.
After Maximo Park's good friend, Jason Boas, was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer, the band took action and put together the gig.
“When someone you know is up against cancer it makes sense to give them your full support. Since that is currently the case, and that person is being treated at The Royal Marsden hospital, which was recently damaged by fire, we decided to do what we can as a band. What we do best is play concerts and we intend to give all profit from our gig at The Forum to help rebuild the cancer unit where they not only look after sufferers but continue to further our knowledge and treatment of the disease. We've never been a preachy band or asked people to shell out daft amounts for tickets, but this show will be well worth the entry fee for a number of reasons.”, says Paul Smith.
Tickets are priced at £20 and go on sale from 9am on April 9th and are available from:
