Superstar Andrea Bocelli has been named as the first headliner for BST Hyde Park in 2024.
The festival returns next summer and the classical star will take to the stage on Friday July 5.
Bocelli is the most successful classical artist of all time and has performed for popes, presidents, prime ministers and royalty. He has sold 90 million records and won a Golden Globe, seven Classical Brits and seven World Music Awards.
Previous London performances include the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at Buckingham Palace in 2022 and Olympic ceremonies.
The full line-up for the BST date is still to be announced, along with further headliners.
Bocelli said: “In and of itself, it should be a private celebration: a career spanning 30 years, 30 years – a lifetime – spent on stages around the world, striving to brush with beauty and offer my voice to those who wish to hear it, as part of the soundtrack of their lives.
"I am delighted to see how today this anniversary has become a celebration for many: a collective way to celebrate three decades of music and excitement, of memories and feelings, that can bloom to life to the notes of a score each time.
"Hyde Park is the perfect place for coming together to celebrate my 30th anniversary and reimagine it as a springboard propelling us into the future, imbued with positivity and the power of good.
"Celebrating it here is sure to be unforgettable, in the vast green lung from which London has been drawing breath for hundreds of years, in this park that is the embodiment of a glorious chapter in the history of a nation, of a continent, of a civilization…and also of so much wonderful music that has rung out here, nourishing it in its wake.”
Jim King, CEO of European festivals at AEG Presents, said: “We have wanted to host Andrea Bocelli in Hyde Park for many years and so it's a great honour for us that we are able to share this special moment with him and his loyal fans. There can be no bigger occasion for all music than experiencing the world's greatest tenor in London's Hyde Park.”
