On Monday, Muse announced two London concerts to benefit three different charities in aid of the people of Ukraine.

The May 9 and 10 shows at the London Eventim Apollo will benefit both War Child, which helps young people impacted by war, and Doctors Without Borders, which provides medical care to those in war and disaster zones worldwide. 

The shows will also celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Big Issue, a U.K. street newspaper sold by homeless people, providing them a source of income.  The paper was name-checked in the Oasis song “Supersonic.”

“We’re honored to be able to play these shows over two nights for three outstanding organizations,” the band writes. “They’re out there delivering vital services time after time for the most vulnerable people in society, both in the U.K. and abroad.”

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, March 30 via Ticketmaster.

Muse recently announced that their ninth studio album, Will of the People, will arrive August 26.
