London prepares for ‘Concert for Diana’
Duane Wells | June 20, 2007
LONDON — It’s been 10 years since Princess Diana died tragically in a car accident in Paris, but even in death she remains the “People’s Princess.”
On Sunday, July 1, 2007, on what would have been her 46th birthday, Princes William and Harry are planning a bash of royal proportion to commemorate the life of their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, with the Concert for Diana, which will be broadcast live from London’s Wembley Stadium, for those not fortunate enough to be in attendance.
Music pals of the late Princess Diana like Elton John and Duran Duran will take the stage along with Fergie, Bryan Ferry, Lily Allen, Kanye West, Rod Stewart, Natasha Bedingfield, Nelly Furtado, P. Diddy, Tom Jones, Take That, Will Young, Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson, The Feeling, James Morrison, Orson and Status Quo, The English National Ballet, and Joss Stone.
Aerosmith's Joe Perry will also perform with the British mack daddy Tom Jones and Anastacia, Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, Sarah Brightman, Donny Osmond and Jason Donovan will perform in a special musical medley which Andrew Lloyd Webber has put together for the concert.
The 6-hour concert will be broadcast live in its entirety on VH1 11 AM (Eastern)/8 AM (Pacific) and streamed live on VH1.com on July 1. NBC will also air a primetime special featuring concert highlights at 8PM on Sunday, July 1 as well as an almost unprecedented special interview with Princes William and Harry by Matt Lauer on Dateline NBC. Lauer will also be broadcasting live from London on NBC on the evening of the epic Concert for Diana. – Issued by Gay Link Content
