Monday, 21 March 2022 Written by Laura Johnson

Birmingham will host Concert For Ukraine, a two-hour fundraising event for the humanitarian appeal in Ukraine.

Camila Cabello, Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sandé, Gregory Porter and Snow Patrol are the first acts to be announced for the line-up at the Resorts World Arena on March 29. Tickets go on sale at midday tomorrow (March 22).

The event is being put together by ITV, STV and Livewire Pictures teaming up with the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) and the Media & Entertainment group Global in order to raise funds for the ongoing DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

The show will broadcast by ITV, STV, ITV Hub and STV Player, and Marks & Spencer will be headline sponsors for the broadcast. Organisers have also confirmed: "All sponsorship and advertising revenue generated from the broadcast of the event (primetime across both linear and simulcast), which is expected to raise over £3 million, will also be donated by ITV to the DEC appeal."

NEC Group’s Managing Director of Ticketing and Arenas, Guy Dunstan said:

“The NEC Group stands with the people of Ukraine. Whilst the live entertainment industry is shocked and deeply saddened to see the humanitarian crisis unfold, it has the power to make a difference. That’s, of course, through people’s love of music.

“As a charity fundraising event, Concert for Ukraine will be a fantastic show that brings together some of the UK’s biggest artists at one of our leading entertainment venues, Resorts World Arena, to help raise money for humanitarian and financial relief. As a Birmingham-based Group, we’re delighted to host an event with such meaning and a cause that will, of course, resonate with people up and down the country. We look forward to working with the promoters and organisers in the lead-up to the concert to ensure that we put on an incredible show which, at its heart, shines a positive light on the people of Ukraine.”

Emeli Sandé also commented: “I will be singing to try to help every innocent human being forced to flee their home and in solidarity with those being racially discriminated against even within this humanitarian crisis. Nobody should be refused access to relief, aid and the right to cross the border to safety, and I’m pleased for the chance to support the DEC’s appeal to help all people whose lives have been affected by the conflict."
