According to reports, the national lottery and the music venue trust have teamed up to help restore live music.
Over 300 live concerts in the national lottery’s revived live tour will benefit from the new £1 million venture.
Artists such as Sir Tom Jones and Rag’ N’ Bone Man will perform one-off gigs in grassroots venues to celebrate the return of live music.
Sir Tom said, “Musicians can record in their bedrooms, but they can’t learn to perform in public without a place to play. Without that, there is no way you can communicate directly to people. It’ll be tough to hone your skills and you’ll never have the thrill of feeling their feedback. Without a grassroots music venue, the neighbourhood won’t have a place where people can come together to discover and support a new talent.”
