Passport: Back to Our Roots is a nationwide series of one-off intimate gigs by the UK’s biggest artists, supporting the independent grassroots venues that form the foundations of the UK’s live music scene.
This is your chance to watch the biggest artists play their smallest gigs – live and in person like they should be – while making a huge difference to the UK’s crisis-stricken grassroots music venues, who need urgent help due to COVID-19 closures.
The gigs will be happening as soon as real shows can happen safely – these are not socially distanced, compromised experiences. Prize draw entries for each gig will be open for two weeks, and at the end of each campaign, all proceeds go to support these venues who need the money, right now. By making a £5 donation you’ll be entered into the prize draw to get into the show you and a friend!

Passenger, aka Mike Rosenberg, is a multi-award winning, platinum-selling singer-songwriter from right here in Brighton. Although still known for his busking, he made the journey from street corners to stadiums with ‘Let Her Go‘, which reached number 1 in 19 countries and which has now notched more than two billion plays on YouTube. Yet ‘Let Her Go’ is just one song from a catalogue that extends across 12 albums in 13 years.
The consistency of his output, and his authenticity both on and off stage, has won Passenger a global fanbase and he continues to tour the world headlining some of its most famous stages.
