Reports: Coldplay to top the bill for Children In Need concert, November 17th (Manchester)


Coldplay, Lady Gaga and Elbow are to top the bill for a huge Children In Need concert organised by Gary Barlow, reports are saying this morning. The show - to take place at Manchester's MEN Arena - will also feature Michael Buble, JLS, N-Dubz and Hugh Laurie. Tickets go on sale on Friday with details at <a href=http://www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey target="_blank">www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey</a>.


David Tennant, Fearne Cotton and Chris Moyles are to host the November 17 concert Children In Need Rocks Manchester, to be broadcast by BBC1 and Radio 1. Further names and surprise guests are to be added to the bill, which ties in with the BBC's annual fundraising spectacular. For the past two years the concert has been staged at London's Royal Albert Hall and the move to the north-west of England ties in with the relocation of several BBC departments to Salford.


Take That and X Factor star Gary 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. 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."

Coldplay Children In Need Concert


I dunno if this goes here, but I just read that Gary Barlow put together a charity concert for 17 November in Manchester, with Lady Gaga, Coldplay, and Elbow. There will also be other artists and celebrities in attendance.


The information is here, and on other news sites as well, but has not yet been announced on the Coldplay website.

Just thought I'd let you all know, I have tickets :D :D :D :D :D

Happy bunny.

They're crappy seats, right at the back, but they're facing the stage, and the rest are ridiculously expensive, so... Better than nothing though, right?

Good luck to anyone else trying for tickets :D

Almost £90 each for standing!


There were others in the nosebleeds for £50 but since it's on TV anyway we thought it wasn't worth the expense of travelling there and finding somewhere to stay to watch it on the big screen.


I'll just donate money to CiN separately.

Thought I'd bump this up a bit since it's next week already!


I'm going, with Roos (Rooze - from this forum) and we wanna meet up with others in the queue perhaps. Who else is going? Anyone up for meeting in the queue? We are standing btw, so what time will others be queueing for? :)
