Big Thank You Tour

Virgin Radio and The Sun’s Who Cares Wins present The Big Thank You Tour

Virgin Radio and The Sun’s Who Cares Wins are excited to announce plans for a very special Big Thank You Tour, featuring three amazing and unique live arena shows this autumn, with FREE tickets for key workers!

We wanted to say thank you to our brave and brilliant coronavirus key workers in the best way we know how - by throwing an amazing party. Three, in fact. We’ll be pulling out all the stops and inviting some very special guest stars to ensure three nights to remember for 35,000 key workers and their families.

The Big Thank You Tour 2020 will take in the following dates:

About the tour

As well as a stellar line-up of live acts (to be announced soon) the London date at The SSE Arena, Wembley will also incorporate The Sun’s Who Cares Wins Awards, celebrating staff who go beyond the call of duty to care for patients and make the NHS the treasure it is. The annual awards, now in their fourth year, were set up to allow Sun readers to pay tribute to the selfless medics, researchers and volunteers who have touched – and saved – their lives.

Of course, if the nation isn’t quite ready for a great big thank you party by October, we’ll just do it as soon as we safely can! But in the meantime, we hope you can share in our excitement for what should be an incredibly special three nights.

Anyone who has been classified as a key worker during the coronavirus pandemic will be eligible to register for the chance to come to one of the tour dates. You can select your field of work from the list of eligible sectors on the registration form. Registration will be open until 31/07/20. Where registrations exceed venue capacity, tickets will be allocated randomly using a ballot system. Please note all attendees must be aged 14 or over, and under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

Keep listening to Virgin Radio or reading The Sun for line-up announcements and more details, but for now if you’re a key worker you can register for the chance to get tickets using the form below.

Registration has now closed


We have taken the decision to delay the Tour until 2021 and will confirm new dates to host our very special guests for three very special nights when we can be sure everyone can have a safe and wonderful experience.
