British rockers Kasabian will perform a special show to raise money for the War Child charity in June (14).

The Club Foot hitmakers will host the concert at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire on 18 June (14) in aid of the charity, which protects and educates children in war zones around the world.

Lead singer Tom Meighan says, "That children suffer in war is unacceptable, and it's important that War Child are there to do something about it. We couldn't be happier to again help them in their vital work with a concert we're really looking forward to. We hope Kasabian fans will support War Child at this event, or by donating to War Child."

Last year (13), fellow British rockers Muse performed a similar show to celebrate the organisation's 20th anniversary.
