Children in Need Rocks the Royal Albert Hall was a charity music concert held at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England on 12 November 2009. The concert was organised by Take That singer-songwriter Gary Barlow as one of a series of events to raise money for Children in Need 2009. The huge success of the concert inspired Barlow to organise Children in Need Rocks Manchester at the Manchester Arena, Manchester in 2011.

The concert was broadcast on BBC One and BBC HD on 19 November 2009, the day before the official appeal telethon. Short films of projects being funded by the charity were shown at various points throughout the show, often featuring one of the celebrities meeting a child or group of children. The event was hosted by BBC Radio 1 presenters Chris Moyles and Fearne Cotton along with Terry Wogan, who had been involved with Children in Need since 1980. The acts performing on the night included Barlow's band Take That, Muse, Mika, and Girls Aloud member Cheryl Cole. The house band was led by Mike Stevens and Steve Sidwell. Paul McCartney brought his own band to the concert. Tickets for the concert were sold from £50.
