LOUIS Tomlinson has announced a one-off live show — with Bluebell Wood set to benefit.
The former One Direction star’s performance on December 12 will also support three other charities — and his tour crew, who have been out of work since March.
The show will be live streamed and tickets go on sale from 4pm today (Wednesday).
Louis said: “I was absolutely gutted to have to postpone my world tour this year as I was really looking forward to seeing all the fans.
“Performing for a live crowd is the most important thing to me, this live stream is a step back into that world and is something I can’t wait to film.
“I want to put on a real show for the fans, with scale and production, creating something special to end 2020 on a positive upbeat note and raise money for charities that are especially close to my heart.
“I also want to give my touring crew work, and raise some vital money for them, as without my crew the show literally couldn’t go on.”
Louis, from Doncaster, is a long-standing supporter of Bluebell Wood and has visited the North Anston hospice to meet and chat to children and families.
He has raised funds through charity football matches — and bought every item on the charity’s Amazon Christmas wishlist in 2018.
FareShare, Crew Nation, and Stagehand are the other charities set to share the show profits.
Bluebell Wood head of fundraising Sam Wood said: “We’re all huge fans of Louis here at Bluebell Wood and we’re over the moon that he’s chosen to support us with this very exciting one-off show.
“Louis is a star in every sense of the word but he never forgets his roots and we’re proud to have him as a charity champion.”
