Elton John has been confirmed to perform in the Peace One Day concert, part of the London 2012 Festival and the star’s only gig in London this year.
Other acts taking part include BRIT winner James Morrison and 2Cellos.
There will also be contributions from Peace One Day ambassador Jude Law and the organisation’s founder, Jeremy Gilley.
The non-profit organisation works to institutionalise the idea of ‘Peace One Day’ on 21 September each year, the day of the concert.
Gilley said it was “a massive honour” to have John take part in the event.
The show, which takes place in London’s Wembley Arena, will mark Global Truce of Peace Day 2012 and be filmed in HD for international transmission.
Elton John said, “When Jeremy and Jude came to see me and told me about Peace One Day and the Global Truce 2012 campaign I had to get involved and support them. I am looking forward to seeing everyone on the 21st September at Wembley Arena and thrilled that James is joining us for this wonderful event!”
Jude Law, who is producing the concert with Gilley said, “I’ve been involved with Peace One Day for such a long time, and it’s thrilling that Elton, James Morrison and 2Cellos are performing at the Peace One Day Celebration on 21 September this year. It’ll be a wonderful event”
