The band are headlining a one-off gig on The Downs this September.

IDLES are offering NHS staff in Bristol and the surrounding regions the chance to sign up for one of 2,000 free tickets for their upcoming headline Bristol show. The band will perform at a one-off outdoor gig held on The Downs on 3 September.

“We know it’s not much,” says the band and event promoters Team Love and Simple Things in a new joint statement. “But it is a gesture of our thanks to you for your incredible work and selflessness over the last 18 months in treating and caring for people at the frontline of the Covid-19 pandemic.”

NHS staff in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire will receive an email this week offering them tickets for the homecoming gig. Workers will need their NHS email address in order to register their interest. 

The full IDLES show line-up is set to be revealed tomorrow (28 July). General sale tickets will also be made available then. Read the full statement below and revisit the IDLES cover story.
