Gary Barlow presents BBC Children in Need Rocks 2013: Barry Manilow + Robbie Williams + The Wanted + Dizzee Rascal + Little Mix
BBC Children in Need has revealed that Gary Barlow will once again be bringing some of the biggest names from the music industry together in two concerts which will help to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
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.”
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.

Barry Manilow tour dates
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
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
Underground dance master who stunned the UK garage scene with his debut album 'Boy In Da Corner' in 2003 which warped the sound into something dark, disturbing and deliciously innovative. Considered the most popular and influential Grime artist in the world, and also recognised as an innovator with his production style, Dizzee continues to innovate and surprise.
Dizzee Rascal tour dates
Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall became Little Mix in 2011. It seems almost a distant memory now that these girls won The X-Factor (and were the first ever group to do so, rather than a solo singer).
They have had four UK No.1 singles and four platinum albums, from the debut 'DNA' to 'Glory Days' and were presented with a plaque from their label in 2017 for total worldwide sales of 30 million. This makes them officially the biggest girl band since the Spice Girls. Aside from sales, they have also gained recognition, with a string of awards from MTV Europe, Choice, Glamour and 'Shout Out To My Ex' received a Brit for 'Best British Single'.
