About the concert

What is the Concert for Diana?

Concert for Diana was an event organised by Princes William and Harry to mark the 10th anniversary of their mother's death and to celebrate her life. The concert featured an array of live music performances from artists known to have been amongst the late Princessís favourites.

The event happened on the evening of Sunday 1 July 2007, the day that would have been Diana's 46th birthday. It took place at the newly-built Wembley Stadium in London and was one of the first major events to be hosted in the venue. Proceeds from the concert will go to charities supported by the late Princess, and to charities of which Prince William and Prince Harry are Patrons.

The event lasted between 5 hours and both BBC Radio 2 and BBC ONE broadcast live from the event.

Line-up

The line-up was chosen by Princes William and Harry with the late Princessís favourites in mind. Other artists were invited to perform because they are favourites of Prince William and Prince Harry.
