Lady Gaga and Coldplay are among the first artists confirmed for a special Children in Need concert to take place this November.
The event, organised by X Factor judge and Take That star Gary Barlow, was announced on this morning’s Chris Moyles Show on Radio One.
Gary told the team that he “can’t wait” to see it all come together on 17 November:
“I’m so thrilled that these incredible artists are giving their time for such a special charity that is very close to my heart.
“There are still some great acts we’re keeping up our sleeve to announce in the coming weeks and who knows, I might even sing a little something on the night too.”
David Ramsden, BBC Children in Need CEO, said of the concert:
“With Gary’s incredible support we are going to be able to change thousands of young lives right here in the UK.
“He has put together an amazing line-up for an unforgettable evening which will raise lots of money for disadvantaged children who desperately need our help.”
The show, hosted by Moyles, Fearne Cotton and former Doctor Who David Tennant, will take place at the MEN Arena in Manchester on 17 November.
Tickets are priced between £55 and £95 and will go on sale at 9am on 16 September from the BBC Children in Need website.
