Hawkwind Show To Support Animal Charities
Hawkwind will perform classic album Space Ritual in full at a charity concert in London next year.
The band aim to support animal rescue organisations with their appearance at Rock 4 Rescue, which takes place at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire on February 22, compered by TV presenter Matthew Wright.
Proceeds will be donated to Wet Nose Animal Aid, Animals Asia, Team Badger and Doris Banham Dog Rescue. Tickets are on sale now.
Hawkwind are gearing up for their first UK tour since mainman Dave Brock won a Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Prog Awards. They were recently forced to postpone a US tour after he was diagnosed with stress related to a rights struggle with former member Nik Turner.
The band play Southampton’s Brook on December 6; Planet Rockstock in Great Yarmouth on December 7 and the Giants Of Rock festival at Butlins in Minehead on the weekend on February 7-9.
