Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo has been confirmed to perform at this year’s BBC Proms in the Park in Hyde Park.
Over his career to date Vittoria has become the youngest tenor to perform at La Scala at the age of 23 and he’s had a number one on the US Billboard Classical Album chart with The Italian Tenor album.
Vittorio joins an already star-studded bill that includes Earth, Wind & Fire, Rufus Wainwright and South African soprano Pumeza Matshikiza. Sir Terry Wogan will host the event with pre-entertainment hosted by Tony Blackburn.
There will be Last Night celebrations across the UK including Belfast, Glasgow and Swansea so people all over can join in the magic of the Last Night of the Proms.
The annual Last Night of the Proms spectacular will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 2. Highlights of the Proms in the Park celebrations around the UK will be included as part of the coverage on BBC One, BBC Two and BBC Radio 3 and all four Proms in the Park events can be watched online live at bbc.co.uk/proms
