Robbie Williams, Dizzee Rascal and Ellie Goulding are to top the bill for two Children In Need concerts organised by Gary Barlow.
The Children In Need Rocks shows which will take place take place at Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith on Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th November and will also feature Little Mix, Rizzle Kicks, Bastille, Passenger, and more to be announced.
Chris Evans and Fearne Cotton will host both nights, which will be combined into one TV programme for broadcast on BBC One and BBC One HD during the Appeal week and will run in tandem with the BBC's annual fundraising event.
Gary Barlow said, "I'm very excited that these incredible artists are giving their time for a special Charity that is close to my heart. This year, BBC Children in Need Rocks is going to be bigger and better than ever, doing not one, but two concerts. There are still some great acts we're keeping up our sleeve to announce in the coming weeks and there will be a couple of surprise moments on stage as well. And who knows, I might even get up on stage too."
The confirmed line-ups so far are:
Tue 12 November - Robbie Williams, Dizzee Rascal, Little Mix
Wed 13 November - Ellie Goulding, Rizzle Kicks, Bastille, Passenger
Further names will be confirmed soon.
Tickets will be priced at £50, £75, and £100, and will go on sale at 9am on Friday 27th September, and eGigs will have links to buy them then.
