Chris Evans and Fearne Cotton will host both nights, which will be combined into one TV programme for broadcast on BBC One and BBC One HD during the Appeal week.

Gary Barlow says: “I’m very excited that these incredible artists are giving their time for a special Charity that is close to my heart.”

“This year, BBC Children in Need Rocks is going to be bigger and better than ever, doing not one, but two concerts. There are still some great acts we’re keeping up our sleeve to announce in the coming weeks and there will be a couple of surprise moments on stage as well. And who knows, I might even get up on stage too.”

Host Chris Evans says: “I am honoured to be hosting the Rocks concerts alongside Fearne; Gary certainly knows how to put on a show, so I think guests and viewers will be in for a very special couple of evenings, a real treat!”


Host Fearne Cotton says: “BBC Children in Need Rocks is always fantastic and once again Gary has pulled off a mega line up. I can’t wait to present this year, we’ve got two nights of music which means double the fun, and I have no doubt that we’re going to raise a huge amount of money for a very special charity doing amazing work.”

BBC Children in Need Chief Executive David Ramsden says: “Gary has created two amazing evenings that will help to change thousands of young lives across the UK.”

Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Friday 27 September on Eventim.
