Concert For Ukraine will be held at Resorts World Arena in Birmingham, England. It's expected to raise over £3 million for the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC). You can donate to DEC here (opens in new tab). Some £250,000 has already been secured after Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced that the UK Government would donate the VAT on each ticket back to the appeal.

Roman Kemp, Marvin Humes and former Spice Girl Emma Bunton will be your hosts. Can't make it to Brum in person? The free live stream at ITV Hub is your best bet. A few surprise performances could be on the cards, but we know for sure that Ed Sheeran, Paloma Faith and Nile Rodgers of Chic will lead what has been dubbed 'Live Aid for millennials'.

Nile Rodgers said of the Concert For Ukraine: "In times of trouble you can always count on great musical artists to come together... I’m therefore delighted to be joining Ed Sheeran, Camilla Cabello and all the wonderful artists to make this a success. As we say in our song Everybody Dance, ‘Music never lets you down.'"

UK viewers can watch the Concert For Ukraine free on ITV Hub (opens in new tab) at 8pm on 29th March but, if you're going to be way from home, here's how to watch a Concert for Ukraine from wherever you are.
