TAKE That are to join the star-studded line up for the Concert for Diana at London’s Wembley Stadium on Sunday, July 1.

Among the other performers are Elton John, Lily Allen, Joss Stone, Pharrell, Rod Stewart, Duran Duran, The Feeling, Bryan Ferry and Kanye West.

Take That are delighted to have accepted an invitation from the Palace to perform at the Concert For Diana.

Mark Owen commented: “We were all due to be away with our families on the date of the event when the concert was first announced, but after being asked to perform last week we got together and decided we wanted to do anything we could to help make Diana’s concert one of the highlights of the Summer.

“Diana was an inspiration to so many people and we feel privileged to have met her.”

The event has been devised by Princes William and Harry as a celebration of their mother’s life, and will be broadcast live to millions of viewers in over 140 countries around the world.

When they announced the concert last December, William and Harry explained that, 10 years on from their mother’s death, they wanted to celebrate her life and commemorate her achievements.

In addition to a Memorial Service on August 31, the concert marks what would have been Diana’s 46th birthday.

Prince William said: “We wanted to have this big concert… full of energy, full of the sort of fun and happiness which I know she would have wanted. And on her birthday as well, it’s got to be the best birthday present she ever had.”
