With Groove Armada, Orbital and others

23 February 2018 | Visit website | Book tickets

Electronic legends Groove Armada and Orbital are just some of the acts who will be coming together to headline a benefit gig in memory of their friend, music sound engineer Rickey Ricketts, who tragically passed away just weeks after being diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme, the most aggressive form of brain tumour.
 
Rickey was a prominent sound engineer, with a career spanning almost thirty years in the live music industry, working with some of the biggest electronic names.
  
Proceeds will go to Rickey’s children, with a donation also being made to ACT (Adaptive Collaborative Treatments), a NEW organisation co-founded by Former Minister for Public Health and Culture Secretary, Baroness Tessa Jowell who was diagnosed with Glioblastoma herself last year.
 
The Benefit Gig for Rickey Ricketts is at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 23 February from 7pm to 1am, Tickets are £30.
