SPECIAL GUESTS ANNOUNCEMENT: BONNIE TYLER, ALED JONES & RUSSELL WATSON, KINGDOM CHOIR, TONY BLACKBURN
Saturday 14 September, Hyde Park, London
One of the UK’s most treasured outdoor events, BBC Proms in the Park returns to London’s Hyde Park on Saturday 14 September, as part of the world-famous Last Night of the Proms.
BBC Proms in the Park has today announced that legendary Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler will join this year’s line-up. A true household name, Tyler is known all over the world for her instantly recognisable voice and huge hits such as “Total Eclipse of the Heart” and “Holding Out for a Hero”. Marking 50 years as a performing artist, she will come to Hyde Park off the back of recent album Between the Earth and the Stars.
With tens of millions of album sales between them, Aled Jones & Russell Watson will also join this year’s bill. Bringing their natural chemistry and supreme vocal talent to Hyde Park, they will perform an eclectic range of classic songs. Last year the powerhouse vocal duo released In Harmony, an album of hand-picked favourites, featuring the likes of “Ave Maria”, “Volare” and “You Raise Me Up”.
Brought to fame following a stunning rendition of ‘Stand By Me’ at the Royal Wedding in 2018, The Kingdom Choir will perform at this year’s BBC Proms in the Park. Releasing their debut album last year, the group of singers from in and around London are renowned for the sense of community expressed in their warm, energetic and enthusiastic performances.
A broadcasting icon and one of Britain’s best known DJs, Tony Blackburn will return to open BBC Proms in the Park following last year’s crowd-pleasing DJ set. In similar fashion to his BBC Radio 2 show Tony Blackburn’s Golden Hour, Blackburn will spin his personal selection of hits across the decades.
The latest additions will join an incredible line up, featuring the likes of Headliner Barry Manilow, Chrissie Hynde, Jack Savoretti, Gabrielle, Lighthouse Family and more.
