Later this year, musician Liam Gallagher is set to hold a special concert specifically for NHS workers at the 20,000 capacity venue The O2 in London.

Liam Gallagher tweeted: “It’s an honour to announce that I will be doing a gig for NHS and care workers at London’s The O2 on October 29th. They do an incredible job, we are very lucky to have them. LG x”

On the promotional image for the concert, it reads: “Liam Gallagher plus special guests.”

Who those special guests might be is yet to be announced.

How do I get tickets?

Tickets will be available exclusively to NHS staff and NHS contract staff from 9am on Wednesday 15 April.

Each staff member is entitled to two tickets - one for themselves and one for a guest of their choice.

You can access the tickets on the O2 website here.

Because the tickets haven’t gone live yet, it's not clear yet what you need in order to claim them but it's likely you'll need an NHS ID card or Primary Care Trust ID card.

When is the concert?

The concert will take place on Thursday 29 October at the O2 arena in London.

The full address of the venue is: The O2, Peninsula Square, London, SE10 0DX.

The event page states that doors will open at 6:30pm, but this could change as we get closer to the day.

You can read more about travelling to the arena on The O2 website here.
