IDLES is giving away free tickets to NHS staff for the next concert
It has been announced that IDLES will be offering free tickets to NHS workers for an upcoming concert at The Eden Project in Cornwall. The IDLES show will be part of the Cornwall Eco-Center ‘Eden Sessions’, an ongoing series of live performances held each year on the grounds of the attraction. This year’s sessions feature performances from Royal Blood, Snow Patrol, McFly, Ben Howard and The Script.
IDLES responded to the ad in a Instagram Post, which read: “As a ‘thank you’ for their heroic work during the pandemic, we are giving NHS employees (and their guests) free tickets to our Eden Sessions concert on Saturday September 18th.” Idles said NHS staff can request a maximum of two tickets per person through Tickets For Good.
The post-punk band from Bristol were scheduled to perform at The Eden Project last year, but the show was canceled following disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Fortunately, original date ticket holders can still have access to this weekend’s rescheduled performance. All remaining tickets can be purchased here. IDLES will be supported by noise rockers Specters and Brighton indie rock band Black Honey.
As always, participants will be asked to comply with Covid status checks upon arrival. Before entering the site, all ticket holders aged 11 and over will need to demonstrate their Covid status in one of the following ways: Proof that they have completed a full cycle of vaccination, proof that they have received a negative PCR or side-flow test result, or proof that they have natural immunity based on a positive PCR test (within 180 days of exposure, but after the 10-day self-isolation period) .
This is the second time that IDLES has made one of its concerts free for NHS staff. In July, the group made 2,000 free tickets available to NHS workers in the group’s hometown of Bristol. Attendees had the opportunity to attend the IDLES concert at Bristol’s Clifton Downs, which took place earlier this month.
