LONDON, Oct. 16 (UPI) -- Paul McCartney, Take That, Lily Allen and Muse have been booked to perform at a concert for the charity Children in Need in London next month, organizers said.

Also lined up to sing at the Nov. 12 gig at Royal Albert Hall are Shirley Bassey, Leona Lewis, Dizzee Rascal and Snow Patrol, the BBC said.

BBC radio host Chris Moyles is to serve as host of the show.

"This concert is helping to make a really special year for Children in Need," the BBC's Terry Wogan said on his radio show when he announced the star-studded roster of performers.

The concert is to be broadcast on BBC One before the main Children in Need pledge drive Nov. 20.
