The Oasis star alos joins the likes of Ian Brown, The Charlatans and Echo And The Bunnymen at the charity bash organised by former member of The Smiths, Andy Rourke.

After a number of collaborations at last year’s event, including Andy Rourke and Johnny Marr playing together, there is speculation that Weller may join up with Gallagher, as he did in London late last year, and Tim Burgess.

Tickets are on sale at £40 and all proceeds go towards Rourke’s Great Northern Aid Trust.
