Renowned indie rock band Mystery Jets will be passing through Southampton for a one-off acoustic show on Friday 17th February for a night of music to be known as Cavalry. The night is to raise funds for Delays’ frontman Greg Gilbert, currently undergoing chemotherapy for bowel cancer.
Also playing are Southampton-bred rockers Band of Skulls, Delays themselves with Primal Scream bassist Simone Marie representing Greg, Sam Duckworth, The Diamond Age and Thomas Tantrum, with more special guests soon to be announced.
Besides being a musician, Greg is an artist, a father of two and a fiancé. His partner set up a crowdfunding page in December to help raise the funds for the expensive private treatment needed that is not available on the NHS. You can donate directly to the crowdfunding page here.
As Greg’s brother Aaron said, “Come and lose yourselves and your voices with us, raise your hands like antennas to the sky and dance dizzy until your problems fall off!”
Expect a very special night of music in return for your ticket donation. Tickets are available here.
