Stars including Van Morrison, Bill Wyman and Brian May are being lined up to play a tribute concert for rock'n'roll legend LONNIE DONEGAN.

THE ROCK ISLAND LINE TRIBUTE gig at London's prestigious Royal Albert Hall is set to take place on 21 June (04) and will raise money for CORONARY BYPASS Research and THE HAREFIELD HEART RESEARCH FOUNDATION.

Other musicians confirmed to play include Mark Knopfler, CHRIS BARBER, Arlo Guthrie, ALBERT LEE and CHAS AND DAVE.

Donegan died midway though a British tour in November last year (03) aged 71.
