Concert to mark VE Day by Diamond on 5 April 2005 9:27pm
 
Free concert to mark VE Day anniversary

A huge free music concert is being held to celebrate the 60th anniversary of VE day.

The two hour "Party to Remember" will take place in London's Trafalgar Square on Sunday May 8.

Organisers are keeping names of some of the artists under wraps but Pop Idol winner Will Young, jazz singer Katie Melua and Welsh diva Katherine Jenkins will be performing at the event.

Heather Mills McCartney and Dr Who star Christopher Eccleston are also taking part in the televised concert.

They will be among the celebrity guests giving special readings throughout the day.

Presenters Natasha Kaplinsky and Eamonn Holmes will be hosting the event.

All 15,000 free tickets to the concert were snapped up within two hours.




This should be good to watch on TV and so good to see that "we will remember them" too

VE stands for Victory in Europe. The end of the war in 1945. The concert looks interesting.
