The 1975 and Sugababes are the last names to be announced as part of this year’s BRITs Week presented by Mastercard for War Child.
With the BRIT Awards 2023 set to kick off on 11th February, a series of intimate gigs raising money for War Child will precede the main event, beginning on 29th January with The Hunna. The 1975 and Sugababes join the likes of Dork cover stars Easy Life, Cavetown and Beabadoobee.
Though The 1975’s show was prematurely teased by Matty Healy, the announcement has finally arrived with news about tickets for the show. The band will play Manchester’s Gorilla on 1st February, following their mammoth sold out arena tour this month. You can read Dork’s full review of their Brighton show here.
The announcement also confirms that pop icons Sugababes will be playing a special show at London’s The Garage on 8th February. The show follows a legendary reunion back in 2022, with ‘The Lost Tapes’ dropping on New Years Eve.
Limited numbers of tickets for the show will go onsale via a presale on Thursday 12th January at 9am GMT. To be entered into the presale, you can subscribe at the link here. General sale will commence on Friday 13th January at 9am GMT.
