Coldplay have announced they are once again putting on gig Under 1 Roof in aid of Kids Company, which works with vulnerable children and young people in London and Bristol.

The show takes place on Thursday, 19 December at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, London.  

Coldplay will be joined by Ricky Gervais' current musical sideline: David Brent and Foregone Conclusion.

Lily Allen, Rizzle Kicks and magician Dynamo are also on the bill.

"Buying a ticket to this concert will guarantee two things: a totally unique never-to-be-repeated night of starspangled entertainment, and money in the Christmas coffers of a charity that brings love and happiness to London's most vulnerable kids," Chris Martin said.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Thursday (November 14).

It is the second time Coldplay have put on such a show - the first U1R took place in 2011, when the band played London's O2 Arena alongside Steve Coogan as Alan Partridge, Tinie Tempah, Rob Brydon and Emeli Sandé. That show raised more than £400,000.
