Duran Duran and Bastille will play at tiny music venues to support War Child in February.
The 'Girls On Film' hitmakers are just one of the acts announced for the Passport Back To The Bars week of one-off events - being held in collaboration with O2 - to raise funds for the charity which brings hope and safety to children in war zones.
Duran Duran bassist John Taylor said: ''Thousands of children are innocent victims in the war zones of adult conflict around the world. They are often being denied education and other basic human rights. We are looking forward to performing an exclusive event in London this coming February, in support of War Child and the important work they do in the regions where these children are suffering.''
Four-piece rock band Bastille, who released their debut album 'Bad Blood' in 2013, and Mark Gardener and Andy Bell's acoustic act Ride will also perform exclusive shows, which will be held in intimate venues in London and Manchester with a capacity of 300 or less.
The announcement marks 10 years since the charity's original set of Passport Back To The Bars shows in aid of victims of the Iraq war, with acts including The Cure, Elbow, Pet Shop Boys and Amy Winehouse.
The series of performances will take place as part of the BRITs Week 2015 from February 16 to 24, 2015. It is hoped the gigs will raise huge amounts of money for the charity, with fans pledging money to be in with the chance of winning tickets.
Further acts are expected to be added to the line-up in the coming weeks. To register for information visit www.warchild.org.uk/passport.
