RICHARD Ashcroft, Beady Eye (pictured), The Coral, Graham Coxon, Primal Scream and Paul Weller will play a special one-off benefit gig in aid of the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal.

The hastily organised concert will take place at London’s Brixton Academy on April 3, 2011.

Almost 8,500 people have died in the disaster with thousands injured and with nearly 13,000 people still missing the need for an immediate response is immense.

The Japanese Red Cross has been working on the ground since the disaster struck, mobilizing 85 teams – made up of 700 doctors, nurses and support staff who have provided first aid and healthcare and assistance in assessing the damage and the needs of the communities affected.

Tickets go on sale on this Friday, March 25, at 9am, and will be limited to a maximum of 4 per applicant.

Tickets are available from O2 Brixton Academy box office (0844 477 2000) as well as www.ticketweb.co.uk and www.ticketmaster.co.uk
