Gallagher to join Japan benefit gig

Liam Gallagher, Paul Weller and Richard Ashcroft are to headline a show to raise money for disaster relief in Japan.

Former Oasis frontman Liam's new band Beady Eye will play at the show at London's Brixton O2 Academy next month.

Other acts who have heeded the rallying call for help include The Coral, Primal Scream and Blur's Graham Coxon.

The gig on April 3 will raise money for the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal.

Money raised will help with the medical efforts as huge teams deal with those who have been injured as a result of the earthquake and tsunami which have devastated the country.

The Red Cross in Japan has mobilised 85 teams, with 700 doctors, nurses and support staff providing first aid and healthcare.

Tickets go on sale on from www.gigsandtours.com.
