Muse played the show in conjunction with the 2013 BRIT Awards Concert (the band is nominated for British Group and British Live Act this year), and in support of the charitable organization War Child, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary. War Child, as its name suggests, has the unique mission of protecting, saving, and caring for the youngest victims of war-torn countries; to date more than 800,000 children have benefited from their outreach.
Muse frontman Matt Bellamy was pleased to be involved with such a great cause: "We are proud to have a continuing association with War Child, who have been doing amazing work over the last 20 years," he noted. "It's great to see their efforts being recognised at this year’s BRITs and we are really looking forward to playing this special show for them”.
We hope you were able to catch Muse's set on Monday! However, if you missed it and you're interested in the efforts of War Child to rebuild the lives of children affected by war, you can still help. Please click here for donation options.
