This Friday is the UK's Red Nose Day and Elbow will be lending their support to the cause by performing 'open arms' on BBC1 tomorrow evening.

The band will be joined on stage by the Halle Youth Choir. It's going to be very special indeed so don't miss it. Their performance will be around 11.15pm.

Elbow will also be donating all the profits from sales of the track during the following week to the Red Nose Day charity campaign.

Tune in to Comic Relief on BBC1 all this Friday night (18th March) from 7pm.

To make a donation and find out more about Comic Relief's Red Nose Day visit www.rednoseday.com

Just like to congratulate Chris Moyles & Comedy Dave on Radio 1 for breaking the longest broadcast of 37 hours, and trying to break the world record of 50 hours.

Oh and they've raised over 1 million for Comic Relief so far Exclamation

Don't actually like radio 1 all that much but i do quite like Moyles show, credit given where credit's due, a great achievement Thumbs Up!

Be good to see, no doubt will have consumed a little alcohol by that time tonight

Apparently whilst Guy and Craig performed back then they raised a staggering 8 million just in those few minutes. I remember it being a very touching performance. There was a guy on the One Show the other week who said this was one of his most memorable moments during Comic Relief. The name of the guy I forget.
