A comic relief 'supergig' organised by Russell Brand to help raise money for addiction charities and counseling services will be dedicated to the memory of late singer Amy Winehouse.

The 37-year old actor and comedian has pulled in a string of celebrity pals – amongst them Noel Gallagher, Kasabian and Paloma Faith – to perform at the one off Give it up for Comic Relief show at Wembley Arena on March 6th.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to a string of UK based organisations dedicated to the fight against drug and alcohol addiction, and former heroin addict Brand admits he was prompted to organise the concert following the sudden death of close friend Amy from alcohol poisoning in 2011.

“At the gig in March we will recognise that addiction is a disease that when correctly treated can be arrested,” he told The Sun. “The money raised by this gig will help alcoholics and addicts get clean and stay clean.

“The impetus was Amy Winehouse's death...There will be a VT on the day of Amy and I...I would like some people to cover Amy's stuff.”

Other artists to perform on the day include Jessie J, Emeli Sande, Nicole Sherzinger and Rizzle Kicks.

A host of top comics from Britain and Ireland are also expected to feature.
