Brian and Roger will be playing The Princeâ€™s Trust Rock Gala 2010 at the Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday 17th November.
Other acts on the line-up include Eric Clapton, Tom Jones, Jools Holland and Status Quo, who will be collaborating with the likes of Paolo Nutini, Jamie Cullum and Paloma Faith.
The Gala will be filmed in 3D and hosted by comedians Rob Brydon and Barry Humphries as Dame Edna Everage.
The Rock Galas of the 80â€™s were formed when the UK economy was gripped by inflation, strikes and high unemployment following recession. Britainâ€™s youth had little hope and no future. The Trust called upon supporters including Brian May and others to form â€˜super groupsâ€™, raising money to help the most disadvantaged young people.
In his role as Princeâ€™s Trust Ambassador, Brian said: â€œOur last performance [in 1988] at the Rock Gala had one aimâ€¦to raise money for youngsters struggling to find work after a recession. Unfortunately we find ourselves in the same situation twenty years on and Iâ€™m helping the best way I know how.â€
