For the first time since 2008, Damon Albarn, Tony Allen, Paul Simonon and Simon Tong will come together for a show, a special one-off The Good, The Bad and The Queen gig at London’s Coronet, New Kent Road on Thursday 10th November, 2011, celebrating 40 years of Greenpeace and the arrival of the new Rainbow Warrior III in London.

“We've always supported Greenpeace and their amazing work. It should be a great night, we're really looking forward to it." Paul Simonon

John Sauven, Executive Director of Greenpeace added "I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our 40th Anniversary than with The Good, the Bad and the Queen. What makes it really special is that this show will coincide with the arrival of Greenpeace's brand new Rainbow Warrior to its new mooring on the Thames.”

The Good The Bad And The Queen debuted with a show at The Roundhouse, London in October 2006, with an eponymous album released by Honest Jon’s/Parlophone the following January, which garnered wide spread acclaim and was described by The Times as “..a tear inducing, beautiful record”. A string of dates followed, including a farewell show to the Hammersmith Palais and an outdoor performance overlooking the River Thames at the Tower of London.

Greenpeace is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. What began as small group of campaigners sailing into a US nuclear testing sight in 1971 to try and halt nuclear proliferation, has 40 years later expanded into a environmental organisation with over 3 million supporters world wide that is leading the fight against global warming, the exploitation of areas in the Arctic for oil and the destruction of the rainforests in South East Asia and Latin America.

Tickets are available from this Friday 7th October at 9am from the usual outlets and on 0844 249 1000 / 0844 811 0051 / 020 7734 8932 / 0844 844 0444 / / /
