Hawkwind to play animal charity show
Hawkwind will perform classic album Space Ritual in full during a one-off show to raise funds for animal charities.
Rock 4 Rescue is set to take place at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London on February 22. Hosted by TV presenter and Hawkwind fan Matthew Wright, the evening will support Wet Nose Animal Aid, Animals Asia, Team Badger and Doris Banham Dog Rescue. Tickets are on sale now.
The band are gearing up for their first UK tour since mainman Dave Brock won a Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Prog Awards. They were recently forced to postpone a US tour after he was diagnosed with stress related to a rights struggle with former member Nik Turner.
They play Southampton’s Brook on December 6; Planet Rockstock in Great Yarmouth on December 7 and the Giants Of Rock festival at Butlins in Minehead on the weekend on February 7-9.
