Irish singer songwriter and famed political activist Sir Bob Geldof is to perform a gig in the capital this summer, as part of a series of dates across the UK.
The famed musician, who rose to fame as lead singer of punk rock group The Boomtown Rats, will be performing at the Islington Assembly Hall in London on Friday 1 June.
After enjoying a successful stint with The Boomtown Rats, where they are perhaps best remembered for their timeless hit ‘I Don`t Like Mondays`, Geldof pursued a solo career and gained plaudits for his hit singles ‘This Is The World Calling` and ‘The Great Song of Indifference`.
Widely recognised as a prominent activist, he is the recipient of the Man of Peace title, an accolade created in 1999 by the annual World Summit of Nobel Peace Prize laureates, which is given to individuals who have made ‘an outstanding contribution to international social justice and peace`.
