heDD Team September 5, 2017 Events Comments Off on Music legends The Lighting Seeds to perform at Legends of Football

Legends of Football is one of the most prestigious charity events in the annual football calendar, and it returns on October 2017 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London for its 22nd year.

Legends of Football

The fundraising event aims to generate funds for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins. To date, Legends of Football has raised more than £7 million, enabling it to provide tens of thousands of music therapy sessions for some of the UK’s most isolated and vulnerable people. Of the award, Steven Gerrard MBE says:

I have heard such wonderful things about the Legends of Football event and the great work it does to support Nordoff Robbins music therapy. I am both proud and thrilled to be receiving this singular honour – joining an amazing roll call of footballing greats that range from Sir Stanley Matthews to Pelé, as well as more recent stars of the Beautiful Game including Alan Shearer, David Beckham and, of course, Liverpool’s own Kenny Dalglish.

“I am looking forward to a fantastic night in the company of close colleagues and other members of the football family as well as the passionate fans and supporters who help to make it such a special evening.”

The Lightning Seeds are confirmed to provide the musical entertainment on what promises to be yet another truly special evening. The band are weaved into the fabric of music and football culture since their anthem Three Lions defined Euro ’96, becoming number one on two separate occasions, selling over a million copies in the UK in the process. A second version of the song also topped the charts two years later.

Lead singer Ian Brodie says:
As a staunch Red, it’ll be an honour to be part of such a special event. Steven Gerrard is undeniably one of the true greats of the modern era, at the very centre of some of the most memorable moments I’ve ever experienced as a Liverpool FC fan. It’s gonna be a great evening in aid of Nordoff Robbins, a genuinely brilliant charity who do so much fantastic work, and we’re absolutely delighted to be involved.”

The place to see Legends of Football

Described by Sir Alex Ferguson as “the best charity dinner in the football calendar”, this hugely popular event will also play host to an evening of unmissable live entertainment and will be graced by many other true legends and exponents of the Beautiful Game.
