Self-proclaimed gypsy punk rockers Gogol Bordello have announced a very special concert to end their European tour. The intimate London show will be a charity fundraiser for Ukraine.
The concert will take place at Electric Brixton on July 16, 2022. £5 from each ticket sold will be donated to Care.org Ukrainian Crisis Response, a charity aiming to provide emergency assistance to four million people.
“London always responded raucously to what we do, perhaps because of its own class
struggles. … Since the beginning of invasion, London has been a very central place of support for
Ukraine’s Victory – not only with fundraising events, but with every tangible kind of
support to bring about Ukraine’s victory as fast as possible.”

Hütz also collaborated with Jesse Malin to cover The Pogues‘ song If I Should Fall From Grace With God. In this case, the proceeds will go to the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation.
