Elton and Rumer do Magic gig
Sir Elton John is to headline a gig for Bauer Radio's Magic 105.4 this summer – as part of a new annual event.
Magic Summer Live will take place at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire and also feature performances from singer Rumer and American due The Pierces.
Elton says: "I'm really excited to be headlining the first ever Magic Summer Live event in July. I can't think of a better way to spend a summer's day than performing some of my greatest hits on a stage in the absolutely stunning setting of Hatfield House."
The 20,000 ticket-event will take place on Sunday 17 July and is sponsored by BT. Programme Director Pete Simmons said: "Magic 105.4 is London's number one music station and Sir Elton John is the world's number one live act. We couldn't have asked for a better headliner to launch our inaugural Magic Summer Live event. Given his very busy schedule and limited dates in 2011, we are honoured that Sir Elton John has chosen to appear with Magic 105.4."
