Take That to headline BBC Radio 2 Live In Hyde Park

Take That will headline this year's BBC Radio 2 Live In Hyde Park on Sunday, September 10.

The band will be joined by Blondie, James Blunt, Emeli Sandé, Rick Astley, Seth Lakeman & Wildwood Kin, Stereophonics, and special guest Shania Twain, who will all perform at the 45,000-capacity "festival in a day".

The acts were announced this morning by Chris Evans on the Radio 2 Breakfast Show, calling it Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park’s “best ever line-up”. 

Jeff Smith, head of music for Radio 2, said: “In this, our 50th year, we welcome an incredible line-up of world class artists and musicians who showcase the breadth of music played across BBC Radio 2. Listeners, viewers and the audience in the park will be treated to everything from rock and pop, to folk and country.

"Take That will be joined by two other acts also celebrating special anniversaries this year namely Stereophonics and Rick Astley plus we’re thrilled to be welcoming country music royalty, Shania Twain, for a rare UK appearance.”

The concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 2. Fans will also be able to watch all the action as it happens on the BBC Red Button, on BBC iPlayer and via the Radio 2 website.

Tickets for the event, previously headlined by the likes of Elton John, Rod Stewart and Jeff Lynne's ELO, go on sale tomorrow (Thursday 8 June) at 8am.
