The Cause, a DIY underground dance space in London, has already raised £5,000 and has now organised an 11 date UK tour in honour of the singer with the aim of raising as much money as possible whilst bringing mental health awareness to the masses.

The tour will play the Mint Warehouse in Leeds on Saturday, April 27.

100 per cent of proceeds from ticket sales and bar revenue will be split evenly between the The Cause's two charity partners, CALM and Mind in Haringey.

The tour, curated in collaboration with NLA Artists, will be a UK-wide celebration of the music Keith and The Prodigy inspired.

Local heroes will play alongside those who the band shared line-ups with and whose records were played at events during their rise to fame.

All artists performing throughout the tour are waiving their fee.

Those who can't attend a tour date can also donate via this Just Giving page which will go directly to The Cause's charity partners.
