About the event
Join in the Last Night of the Proms celebrations in Hyde Park, hosted by Michael Ball.
The legendary Barry Manilow will headline this year's concert. Other artists include American singer-songwriter and founding member of The Pretenders Chrissie Hynde, English-Italian singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti, iconic East London-born RnB and soul singer Gabrielle and star operatic soprano Aida Garifullina.
In addition to a number of solo artists, this year’s line-up will feature a very special duo in the shape of 90s British pop giants Lighthouse Family. The famous Hyde Park stage will also host Rock Choir, who return for the second year running, as well as the BBC Concert Orchestra under conductor Richard Balcombe.
With a career spanning more than 50 years, Grammy Award winnning Barry Manilow has recorded and released 47 Top 40 singles, including 12 numbers ones, some of which he will bring to Hyde Park for a live performance alongside the BBC Concert Orchestra.
Proms in the Park favourites, the 60-piece BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Richard Balcombe, will again perform all the traditional Last Night anthems live on the Hyde Park stage. Forty thousand voices will join them for the mass singalong as the evening brings to a spectacular close two months of music-making.
