Veteran artists Van Morrison and Mick Hucknall will join forces on Friday, November 1 at London's Royal Albert Hall for an All-Star Tribute to Bobby Bland.

Bland passed away on June 23 after a 56 year career of singing great blues and R&B including such classics as Farther Up the Road, Turn On Your Love Light and Little Boy Blue.

Morrison has been a life-long fan of Bland's, recording Love Light while still with Them and Ain't Nothing You Can Do on his album It's Too Late to Stop Now.
