After having to cancel this summer's concerts because of the pandemic, organisers of the ’80s-inspired Let’s Rock music events have now confirmed rescheduled dates for the summer of 2021.
The line-ups remain the same, with headliners including Adam Ant, OMD, Wet Wet Wet and UB40.
Other performers taking part are: Tony Hadley, The Boomtown Rats, Kim Wilde, Marc Almond, Sister Sledge, The Undertones, Midge Ure’s Electronica, Toyah, T’Pau, Go West, Nik Kershaw, Chesney Hawkes, Betty Boo, and Heaven 17.
Last Saturday’s LockdownFest, organised by Let’s Rock in aid of its official charity partner Child Bereavement UK, raised over £130,000.
The online event - which featured live-at-home sets from Let’s Rock legends including Tony Hadley, Wet Wet Wet, ABC, Jools Holland, Howard Jones, Midge Ure, and Jason Donovan - was livestreamed on YouTube and drew an estimated audience of two million.
LockdownFest was trending at number two during the evening, above Britain’s Got Talent and just below Eurovision 2020: Europe Shine A Light.
Commenting, Let’s Rock's organisers, UK Live, said: “We’re humbled by the generosity shown by our audience in raising £130,000 for Child Bereavement UK. We put together LockdownFest because we aren’t able to raise funds for the charity at our events this year, and because we felt we all needed a bit of a pick-me-up. There were so many great performances on the night - a big thanks to all the artists who took part."
Original tickets remain valid for the rescheduled dates. Each ticket is transferable to any other Let's Rock location in 2021.
Midlands dates include The Quarry, Shrewsbury, on 17 July 2021.
