Paul Weller is to perform at Cancer Research U.K.'s annual "Sound & Vision" event, scheduled for Feb. 26 at London's Abbey Road Studios. The former Jam and Style Council frontman will perform alongside Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini, soul act Lemar and emerging U.S. country singer Diana Jones.

The event will be co-hosted by BBC Radio 2 presenters Bob Harris and Dermot O'Leary; Harris has become a "Sound & Vision" patron, joining founding patron Sir George Martin.

It will also feature an exhibition of rock photography and a live auction of music memorabilia, including an Epiphone guitar donated by Gibson and signed by Weller, Slash, Brian May and Justin Hawkins.

"I'm proud to be associated with this event and to be supporting Cancer Research U.K.'s amazing work," said Weller in a statement.

"Sound and Vision," now in its fourth year, has raised over £400,000 ($579,941) for Cancer Research U.K. Limited tickets are available via online auction at www.soundandvisionofficial.com.
