Event Details

A series of concerts in Kent, Staines, Luton, Darlington and Milton Keynes have been announced for May and June 2024 to support Catfish lead vocalist and guitarist Matt Long.

Long was diagnosed with bowel cancer a year ago, and recent scans revealed that the cancer had spread to his liver and stomach lining.

Matt’s mum, Fiona Long, has also set up a GoFundMe page aiming to raise £100,000 for private treatment in the US for his cancer treatment.

“Matt has been battling bowel cancer for just under a year,” Fiona told us, “and despite surgery and chemo, his latest scan shows that the cancer has spread into his liver and stomach lining. His cancer team have said although there is the option of trying a different type of chemo, they don’t hold out much hope that it will cure him and is likely to, at best, extend his life a little.”
