Coldplay and Lady Gaga have signed up to play a charity show organised by Take That's Gary Barlow.

The 'Born This Way' hitmaker and 'Yellow' group will take to the stage for a Children In Need Rocks concert at Manchester's MEN Arena on November 17 along with Elbow, N-Dubz, Snow Patrol, Ed Sheeran and JLS - and Gary is "thrilled" to have attracted such a high profile line-up.

He said: "I'm so thrilled that these incredible artists are giving their time for such a special charity that is close to my heart."

Gary - who stepped in to perform solo at a concert at London's Hyde park on Sunday (11.09.11) after Lionel Richie was taken ill - hinted he may sing at the concert, which will be part of the BBC's annual Children In Need charity fundraising drive in the UK.

He added: "I suppose I might be persuaded to sing a bit on the night - anything to help make this year's total the best yet."

He also promised the concert will feature "a secret roster of special celebrity guests and never-before seen surprise collaborations".

Tickets for the show are set to go on sale on Friday September 16 via the BBC Children In Need website.


The anthemic indie quartet continue to steamroller all before them.
