Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett to perform charity gig in London

0

It has been confirmed that Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett will perform at London’s Royal Albert Hall for one night only with all takings going to charity.

The show will take place sometime in June 2015, and will be in support of the artists’ collaborative jazz album, Cheek to Cheek, which was released last month. The show will feature both an orchestra and big band musicians.

The gig will be in support of the national charity WellChild, which endeavours to help seriously ill children. The Chief Executive of the charity said: “WellChild is thrilled that Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett are supporting WellChild through this concert. The proceeds will be a massive boost to our work to support seriously ill children and their families across the UK.”

The show will see the unlikely but equally adorable duo perform classic jazz tracks such as ‘Anything Goes’, ‘Cheek to Cheek’ and ‘Let’s Face the Music and Dance’.

Tickets go on sale this Friday (31st October) at 9am, and will be priced between £45 and £130.
