Billy Bragg To Headline Joe Strummer Benefit

ACTON TOWN (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Billy Bragg, Hard-Fi and Clash bandmembers Mick Jones and Topper Headon are scheduled to play a benefit concert for striking firefighters, marking the fifth anniversary of the now legendary show Joe Strummer performed with his former bandmate Jones at the Acton Town Hall in 2002.

The show was one of Strummers last before his death.

The show, called “Arms Aloft,” will take place in Acton Town on November 15th, and is backed by the Fire Brigades Union.

A portion of the proceeds will go toward a new Billy Bragg-fronted campaign called Jail Guitar Doors, which aims to put musical instruments in prisons up and down the country, in memory of Strummer. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
