Another London Festival Sells Out
Those Brits sure do love their music festivals and they definitely have enough excellent ones to go around this year. The latest being the Princess Diana Memorial Concert which is set to take place on July 1st at the new Wembley Stadium on what would have been Diana's 46th birthday. The first batch of tickets sold out in 20 minutes back in December with an additional 10,000 seats made available yesterday. Pharrell Williams, Keane, Kayne West, Take That, Lily Allen, and of course Sir Elton John are all on the bill. Sir Elton John has been very public in the past about his affection for the late Princess and is incredibly honored to be able to pull this off, "Diana was a personal friend and someone I greatly admired for her tireless and enthusiastic work for charity." Proceeds from the event will go to a host of the charities Diana supported throughout her life as well as two the Princes also devote time to, Centrepoint and Sentebale. (via NME)
