In honour of the service and sacrifice made by men and women for their country, risking everything in the line of duty, some of the biggest names in entertainment are proudly coming together in aid of Britain's war wounded.
Help for Heroes has united the nation behind the Armed Forces. The charity does not question the rights and wrongs of recent wars, just strives towards providing the best possible care and support for those wounded in the service of our country. This is not only a fundraising concert, but a statement of appreciation from the UK's entertainment community to our brave young service men and women. All proceeds go straight to Help for Heroes.
Since embarking on a solo career, Robbie has notched up a steady stream of hit singles and albums, and has collected numerous awards for his performances. Sing when he's winning? He's hardly stopped!
Robbie Williams tour dates
James Blunt is one of the UK's most successful singer-songwriters of recent years. His debut album, Back To Bedlam, sold over 11 million copies and his hit single, You're Beautiful, was number one in multiple countries whilst winning an Ivor Novello for airplay and receiving three Grammy nominations. Blunt has gone on to release another multi-million selling album, All The Lost Souls, and has had major hits with Goodbye My Lover and 1973.
James Blunt tour dates
Winner of the 2008 X Factor, Alexandra Burke grew up in North London and is the daughter of former Soul II Soul lead singer Melissa Bell. Influenced by classic soul singers and contemporary heroes such as Mariah Carey and Beyonce.
Alexandra Burke tour dates
Formerly a singer with r'n'b girlband Mis-teeq, Alesha went on to win the BBC programme Strictly Come Dancing in 2007. She now has a successful solo career.
Alesha Dixon tour dates
No longer just Julio's son, Enrique is a successful worldwide recording artist in his own right. He's the biggest-selling artist singing in his native tongue ever, Enrique's English language version of 'Hero' gave him a number one across the globe and his smooth pop balladry and handsome features have earned him a host of fans.
Enrique Iglesias tour dates
Brought up in Neath, South Wales, by the time Katherine was seven her interest in pop music had been superseded by classical music. She started taking piano lessons and joined her local church choir. The record-breaking multi-platinum selling mezzo-soprano is best known from her unique interpretations of popular songs, operatic arias and hymns. Katherine is also known for her long standing work with the British Forces Foundation, for which she is a trustee, that has led to her being referred to as the Forces Sweetheart.
Katherine Jenkins tour dates
Tom's 46-year career all began with his first hit 'It's Not Unusual' in 1965. Now in his early 70s and five decades on, Tom has found a new audience, thanks in part to his coaching on BBC1's flagship talent show 'The Voice', and also in reaching fans of traditional r'n'b and gospel material with his critically acclaimed 39th studio album in 2010; 'Praise & Blame'. Although he is best known for hits including 'It’s Not Unusual', 'Kiss', 'Delilah', 'What’s New Pussycat' and 'Green Green Grass Of Home', he is first and foremost an artist with a true rhythm and blues soul. Following the success of 'Praise & Blame', in May 2012 Tom released ‘Spirit In The Room’, another collection of simple, raw and soulful songs. Knighted by Her Majesty the Queen in 2006, Sir Tom is indeed a living legend. His irresistible show traverses musical eras and genres, cuts across class divides and appeals to young and old, male and female, mainstream and cutting edge. Tom has always been about the power of the song, the power of the voice.
Tom Jones tour dates
Pixie Lott - so named after her fairy-like appearance as a baby - was signed to Def Jam at just fifteen years of age and her first single, 'Mama Do (Uh Oh, Uh Oh)' sold 50,000 copies soon after. This success was easily repeated with the single 'Boys and Girls', a tantalising precursor to the success of her debut album, Turn It Up - debuting at #6 on the UK Albums Chart.
Pixie Lott tour dates
Plan B (Ben Drew) singer-songwriter, rapper, actor and film director came to prominence with the 2006 release of the critically acclaimed hip hop album 'Who Needs Actions When You Got Words'. The East Londoner can spit rhymes and hold his own against any MC or rapper, but can then suddenly switch into a delicate, sweet white soul croon that would shame any boyband member. He accompanies himself on an acoustic guitar, playing in a curiously folksy, fingerpicking style. But the killer punch is the lyrics - bleak, cinematic, X-rated urban poetry laced with a mordant wit and a strong dose of pathos.
Plan B tour dates
The Saturdays first toured in 2008, supporting Girls Aloud. They have since had multiple Top 10 hit singles and have set the pop world alight with their high energy performances.
The girls have gone on to sell over five million records, and with four top ten albums already under their belts, The Saturdays continue to be a whirlwind force in the world of pop which shows no sign of slowing.
The Saturdays tour dates
One of 2010's biggest breakthroughs, the edgy-pop boy band based in London have already built up a huge fanbase. Their 2011 BRIT nominated debut single 'All Time Low' reached number one in the charts followed by their second song, 'Heart Vacancy', hitting number two. In March 2011, Jay, Max, Nathan, Siva and Tom released the official Comic Relief single for Red Nose Day, 'Gold Forever', which became their third top five single.
The Wanted tour dates
Winner of the City Life Comedian of the Year and a finalist in both the Mercury Comedy Awards and the Daily Telegraph Open Mic Awards. A strong stage presence and life experience make him a comedian who is not afraid to take chances, and this is reflected in his status as one of the best comics in the country.
'One of the most popular comedians in the country' (Mail on Sunday)
'This is a treat' (The Times)
'Hottest stand-up going’ Daily Telegraph
'A fabulously gifted comedian' (The Mirror)
'One of this country's biggest comedy stars' (Time Out).
John Bishop tour dates
Kevin Bridges, Glasgow's 'young comedy prodigy' (The Guardian) reveals his innermost thoughts on a variety of topics, from his home-land Scotland and beyond. His unique brand of social commentary, astute observations and sharp one-liners have proved a hit with audiences, leading to an extraordinary couple of years for Kevin. He sold out over 100 tour dates on his first ever UK solo tour in 2010, hosted an episode of BAFTA nominated Live at the Apollo, headlined an episode of Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow (BBC1) also in 2010, plus hosted the second series of Channel 4's Stand Up For The Week in 2011.
Kevin Bridges tour dates
Although he's a man of few smiles, Jack Dee's deadpan, dry humour has made him one of Britain's favourite veteran comedians. Starting his career as a stand-up comic, he first came to the small screen in the 1990s as the face of the John Smith's Bitter advertising campaign and soon became known as 'The Midget with the Widget'. By 1995, he had appeared in countless TV shows and gained an impressive array of awards. In 2001, he was the highlight of Celebrity Big Brother digging secret escape tunnels while the others were in the bath. Much to his surprise, the nation showed their adoration voting him the winner of the series. With often sell-out gigs, a chance to see this talented misery onstage definitely shouldn't be missed.
Jack Dee tour dates
First-class comedian with a string of accolades. He was a finalist in the Channel 4 'So You Think You're Funny' Competition 2002. He then graduated to being the winner of the Gift Of The Gag 2003 and BBC Comedy Awards 2003 competitions. In recent times he's been seen on TV's 'Mock The Week'. A surefire star of the future.
'Without doubt one of the best comedians anywhere in the world' (Time Out).
Rhod Gilbert tour dates
Arguably Britain's most popular comedian of recent years, Bolton-born Peter Kay is equally well known for both his hilarious stand-up routine and his spoof TV docu-drama 'Phoenix Nights', about a struggling Lancashire nightclub.
Peter Kay tour dates
Renowned for his hilarious observations and loveable, friendly delivery, Jason has been a firm favourite with comedy fans of all ages since his first solo stand-up show earned him huge critical acclaim and a nomination for the prestigious Perrier Newcomer Award back in 2005.
'Effortlessly entertaining' (Evening Standard)
'He's blessed with the sort of laid-back charm and sharp turn of phrase you can't manufacture' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Manford retains an affably jovial demeanour that makes him warmly enjoyable company' (Chortle)
'What Manford does best: classic, chirpy-chappie stand-up' (The Guardian).
Jason Manford tour dates
Smart-suited comedian from North London who has appeared on Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You and 8 Out Of 10 Cats to name but a few.
The past few years have been exceptional for Michael, performing sold-out shows in arenas all over the world. His 2012 tour, Showtime, was the biggest selling comedy tour in the world in 2012, playing to over 640,000 people including a record-breaking ten night residency at London’s O2 Arena, matching the pop-superstar Rihanna’s 2011 record.
Michael has also released three best-selling DVDs: 2008’s Live and Laughing, was the biggest selling UK debut stand-up DVD of its time, Hello Wembley, which in 2009 became the fastest-selling UK stand-up DVD of all time - a record it still holds, and 2012’s Showtime, which beat its competitors to the Christmas Number One spot.
'One of the most gifted performers to emerge in years.' - The Evening Standard.
