Bon Jovi to headline Royal Variety show
The band will top the bill, which also features James Blunt and Enrique Iglesias.
The December 3 show at Liverpool's Empire Theatre will be attended by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh.
It is due to be screened on TV later on in December.
The news follows yesterday's announcement that the US rockers would be playing a six-date UK stadium tour next June.
The tour kicks off at Southampton's St Mary's football ground on June 11 and ends with a date at Twickenham on June 27.
