FRIENDY FIRES will headline the ABLE2UK Concert on Monday 20th August at Camden Roundhouse. The inaugural ABLE2UK Concert for disabled awareness, organised by Howard Thorpe, promoted by Metropolis Music and Coda Agency, will take place at Camden’s Roundhouse on 20th August 2012. Confirmed artists alongside Firendly Fires for the event include Frank Turner (solo), Miles Kane, Steve Cradock plus mystery guests to be announced. Advance tickets, available now from See Tickets, Ticketmaster and the Roundhouse box office, are priced at £30.00 with all profits going to the Able2UK organization.
Howard Thorpe, ABLE2UK founder said ‘to have such a line-up of this calibre is a dream come true and will be the perfect way to launch what I hope will become an annual event promoting disabled awareness.’ Money raised from the concert itself will go towards music promoters and venues across the UK improving their faculties for those with disabilities. It will create a brand new ABLE2UK Area which will replace the standard disabled viewing platforms at UK festivals for those in wheelchairs. The profits raised will help those who require special seating arrangements, hearing loops and even an easier way to purchase refreshments at live events. This is not only for wheelchair users, but for the deaf, blind and those with co-ordination barriers.
