Thursday night culminated the Virgin Radio UK Big Thank You Tour with a gig in Wembley following events earlier this week in Glasgow and Manchester.
The tour, which offered free tickets to our key worker superstars, has featured The Kaiser Chiefs, The Fratellis, The Feeling, David Gray, Ash, Newton Faulkner, The Vaccines, Isaac Stuart, The Wild Things, Tom Grennan and Tom Walker.
The Virgin Radio Big Thank You Tour, with St John Ambulance, was a celebration of the UK’s key workers: from the amazing emergency service workers, to the bus drivers and shop workers that kept the country going during the coronavirus pandemic.
Virgin Radio UK Content Director, Mike Cass said: “At Virgin Radio UK, we wanted to do what we could to celebrate our key workers and thank them for everything they have done for us all during the pandemic. The Big Thank You Tour was one big rock star thank you, from some of the best names in the business with lots of great music.”
Chief Executive of St John Ambulance, Martin Houghton-Brown said: “It’s been an incredibly challenging time for the whole nation, but this ‘Big Thank You Tour’ has been the perfect opportunity to celebrate and thank all those who have gone above and beyond caring for and keeping the country running – it’s great so many were there enjoying themselves.”
