Van Morrison and Mick Hucknall are teaming up for a special tribute concert in honour of late soul star Bobby 'blue' Bland.

Both veteran singers are huge fans of the musician, who passed away in June (13) at the age of 83 after a battle with ill health.

Former Simply Red star Hucknall even named his debut solo album Tribute to Bobby after his all-time hero, and now he is joining Brown Eyed Girl hitmaker Morrison for a special gig in London.

Van Morrison & Mick Hucknall's All-Star Tribute to Bobby Bland will take place at the Royal Albert Hall on 01 November (13).
