Lionel Richie has been named as the headline act for BBC Radio 2's Live in Hyde Park event in what will be the singer's only UK show this year.
The concert takes place on Sunday September 11th, with Jools Holland also part of a star-studded line-up for those booking London hotels to enjoy.
Sandie Shaw and Ruby Turner will be performing, while further acts are set to be announced by Chris Evans on BBC Radio 2 over the coming weeks.
"Radio 2's Hyde Park shows are without a doubt one of the highlights of my year - a beautiful location, an astounding line-up of world class artists including superstar Lionel Richie, and thousands of the great British public coming together to enjoy themselves. What could be better, so come and join the Radio 2 party," said Evans on the concert.
Richie has had a host of hits over the years, including Hello, All Night Long, Endless Love and Dancing on the Ceiling.
