A spectacular Beatles tribute is set to be the highlight of next week's U.K. Music Hall Of Fame, it has been announced.

Razorlight's Johnny Borrell, Queen's Roger Taylor, Corinne Bailey Rae, and Jose Gonzalez will apparently form a supergroup at the event, which takes place at London's Alexander Palace.

George Martin, who is to be inducted at the ceremony, will conduct a 31-piece orchestra, as the group play "Golden Slumbers," "Carry That Weight," and "The End" from Abbey Road.

Prince also joins Brian Wilson, Dusty Springfield, Led Zeppelin, Rod Stewart, Bon Jovi, and James Brown as the 2006 inductees. The 2006 U.K. Music Hall Of Fame takes place on November 14.
