Nothing But Thieves to play for Radio X

Indie-rock band Nothing But Thieves will play a stripped back gig for Radio X and Barclaycard competition winners.

The event is happening at London’s Clapham Grand on Tuesday 10th November and tickets will be available to win in pairs.

Under the current Tier 2 guidelines for London, winning pairs will have to reside in the same household or support bubble.

Radio X Presents Nothing But Thieves with Barclaycard follows the ‘Best of Capital’s Summertime Ball with Barclaycard’, which saw Global deliver a two hour live TV show celebrating 11 years of performances from artists at Capital’s Summertime Ball.

Chris Moyles announced the event live on air this morning. Radio X’s Toby Tarrant will host the live gig and fans at home will be able to catch up on highlights from the show plus an interview with the band on Global Player and Radio X social platforms from November 15th.

A media campaign on-air and across Radio X’s social media platforms and website supporting Radio X Presents Nothing But Thieves with Barclaycard launches today.

Radio X Managing Editor Matt Deverson said: “Radio X Presents gives fans the chance to see some of the world’s biggest artists play to small crowds. Now more than ever, we’re delighted to bring this very special gig to music lovers despite challenging circumstances.

“Alongside Barclaycard and The Clapham Grand, we are monitoring the situation and following government regulations closely, to ensure that this event celebrating one of the UK’s most exciting bands can take place within a safe and secure environment.”

Dan Mathieson, Head of Sponsorship at Barclaycard, said: “We have all missed the buzz of live music events, which is what makes today’s announcement all the more exciting.

“We remain committed to delivering the best in entertainment to Barclaycard customers and Radio X Presents Nothing But Thieves is a great example of this. We are delighted as part of our ongoing partnership with Global to give music fans the opportunity to enjoy this special gig.”

Adhering closely to government guidelines, The Clapham Grand will host the socially distanced gig for a small crowd of just 180 people.
