Sir Bobby Robson's 80th celebrated with charity night

A special night of music, comedy and football is to mark what would have been former England football manager Sir Bobby Robson's 80th birthday.

The charity event at The Sage Gateshead will feature the likes of current England boss Roy Hodgson, Dire Straits' frontman Mark Knopfler, and X Factor winner Joe McElderry when it is held on 18 February 2013.

Produced by Lindisfarne's Ray Laidlaw, it will also feature Sir Bobby's final interviews, which were filmed when the event was first planned before his death in 2009.

Sir Bobby Robson - A Celebration, will raise money for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and The Alan Shearer Foundation.
