DIANA CONCERT


SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 15 -- On July 1, 2007 at the new Wembley Stadium "Concert for Diana" was staged in front of an audience of 62,000 and beamed to a worldwide TV audience of many hundreds of millions in over 140 countries. The concert, organised by Prince William and Prince Harry to celebrate the life of their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, on what would have been her 46th birthday proved to be a spectacular success -- with the UK TV viewing figure peaking at a massive 15 million. The entire concert, and many extra features, is captured on a two disc DVD which is being released now by Hip-O Universal Music Enterprises.

Last Summer's "Concert for Diana" featured a truly unique artist line-up, spanning a broad artistic spectrum ...from Pharrell Williams to the English National Ballet, with the criteria being that the artists invited were some of the favourites of the Princess and the Princes: this resulted in an intoxicating blend of rock, pop, rap, classical and musical theatre. The two disc DVD, filmed by Janet Fraser Crook, features all of the 21 memorable performances by many of the world's greatest musicians: Elton John, Rod Stewart, P. Diddy, Joss Stone, Bryan Ferry, Natasha Bedingfield, Fergie, Pharrell Williams, Lily Allen, Take That, Roger Hodgson of Supertramp, Tom Jones, James Morrison, Orson, Joe Perry, Kanye West, The Feeling, Status Quo, Will Young, Nelly Furtado and Duran Duran. In recognition of Diana's love of ballet, the English National Ballet gave a spell binding performance of an extract from Swan Lake, and the Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals medley, packed with surprise guests Anastacia, Connie Fisher, Andrea Ross, Andrea Bocelli, Sarah Brightman, Josh Groban, Donny Osmond, Jason Donovan and Lee Mead, reflected the Princess's fondness for musical theatre. Star presenters included Kiefer Sutherland, Sienna Miller, David Beckham, Ricky Gervais, Dennis Hopper and Jamie Oliver.

The front cover of the DVD features one of the best-loved images of Diana, taken by Mario Testino at her last official portrait session. It is one of the photographs currently on show as part of Testino's exhibition in the State Apartments at Kensington Palace. Accompanying the DVD is a 20 page booklet which contains a photographic record of the events on July 1 at Wembley stadium. |GlobalGiants.com|
