Lostprophets star’s kidney concert - WalesOnline

Lostprophets star’s kidney concert - WalesOnline

LOSTPROPHETS lead singer Ian Watkins will headline an all-star one-off concert on New Year’s Eve.

The gig has been organised by the 31-year-old from Pontypridd to support the work of the Kidney Wales Foundation, as he is today named the charity’s new ambassador for young people.

Watkins will urge fans at the concert to sign the NHS Organ Donor Register in an attempt to increase the number of organs available for transplant.

He became involved with the charity after his mum Elaine had a kidney transplant last year.

And he was inspired to headline the concert, which will take place at Cardiff University’s Great Hall, after being contacted by Lostprophets fan and Kidney Wales Foundation volunteer Alun Reynolds, who is recovering from kidney failure.
