Coldplay, Lady Gaga and Elbow are amongst the acts set to appear at a special Children In Need fundraising concert in Manchester on November 17.

Organised by Gary Barlow, the show will also see performances from Michael Buble, JLS, Hugh Laurie, James Morrison, N-Dubz, Snow Patrol and Ed Sheeran, with more names to be confirmed at a later date.

Taking place at the city's MEN Arena, the show will be hosted by Fearne Cotton, Chris Moyles and David Tennant and broadcast on BBC One and Radio 1 from 8pm-10pm on the day.

Of the show Barlow said:

I'm so thrilled that these incredible artists are giving their time for such a special charity that is very close to my heart. I can't wait to see it all come together on November 17th, 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.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on September 16.

Barlow is also heading up a cover of Massive Attack’s 'Teardrop', which is being released to raise money for Children In Need.

Gary Barlow, Labrinth, Tinchy Stryder, Wretch 32, Chipmunk, Tulisa, Ed Sheeran, Ms Dynamite, Mz Bratt, Rizzle Kicks and Dot Rotten recorded the song and shot the video in London's Metropolis Studio. 'Teardrop' will be released by Island Records on November 13.
