On 7 May, the day after the coronation of King Charles III, a concert will be held on the outskirts of London (UK). On Friday 14 April, The Sun and the BBC confirmed the presence of new international artists at this event.
It will be a historic event. On Saturday 6 May, Charles III will be crowned King at Westminster Abbey in London. The following day, a concert will be held at Windsor Castle on the outskirts of London. While the celebrations were slightly overshadowed by the fact that several of the leading figures invited to sing declined to perform, new artists have now confirmed that they will take part.
As reported by The Sun tabloid and the BBC respectively on Friday 14 April, 38-year-old American singer Katy Perry – who is mum to baby Daisy – will be the star of the show. Alongside the California Gurls, Last Friday Night and Dark Horse performer, Italian operatic tenor Andrea Bocelli will also be present. The TV station also mentioned the presence of Lionel Richie as the headliner of the concert. This clarification confirms the information already given by The Sun on this subject last February. The British newspaper had then assured that it was the first international star to have agreed to take the stage.
More than 20,000 spectators expected
The BBC article states that the eclectic line-up will also include the boy band Take That, in their current form and without Robbie Williams. It has been four years since the latter last played alongside the other members of the band.
British classical music composer Alexis Ffrench – whose two albums Evolution and Dreamland were a big hit – will also be there, says The Sun. So will British singer-songwriter and musician Freya Ridings. More than 20,000 people are expected to attend the performance in front of Windsor Castle.
According to reports in The Sun, Katy Perry – who shares a life with 46-year-old British actor Orlando Bloom, who rose to prominence in the early 2000s for his roles in The Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean – recently said she was particularly “excited” about performing at the concert.
