Gary Barlow has said his Children In Need Rocks concert in Manchester, featuring performances from Lady Gaga and Coldplay, will be an “incredible evening”.
The gig takes place at the MEN Arena on November 17, and will also feature Ed Sheeran, JLS, Elbow, N-Dubz, Hugh Laurie, Michael Buble, James Morrison and Snow Patrol.
“We've got some enormous acts, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Michael Buble, all on the same stage I think it's just going to be an incredible evening,” Barlow told BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat.
“It's going to be the biggest music event of 2011.”
The Take That star, who organised the gig, said he had put a hit list together and received confirmation from 80% of the artists he targeted.
“It's exciting when you get a yes and start imagining how the night will come together,” he said.
“I'm really pleased everyone has come through. For anyone who buys a tickets, I think it's going to be an incredible experience.”
