Josh Groban is to join Celine Dion as a special guest for her British Simmer Time Concert in Hyde Park on 5 July 2019 with support from Claire Richards.
Celine will be headlining The Great Oak Stage for her only European date of 2019 and her performance will come just a month after the end of her second record-breaking Las Vegas residency Celine on 8 June 2019.
“Over the course of my career, Celine has been an inspiration, friend, and singing with her quite frankly started my career as a teenager,” says Groban. “To join her for this extremely special concert is a great honor and I look forward to giving my all for her and the audience at Hyde Park.”
Grammy Award-nominated singer, songwriter, and actor Josh Groban has entertained fans across the globe with his multi-platinum albums and DVDs (over 35 million sold worldwide), electrifying live performances, and comedic film and television appearances. The 37-year-old Los Angeles native stands out as “the only artist who has had two albums appear on the Top 20 Best-Selling Albums list of the past decade,” according to Billboard.
His discography encompasses eight studio albums, including his 2001 self-titled 5x-platinum debut, 2003’s 6x-platinum Closer, 2006’s double-platinum Awake, 2007’s 6x platinum Grammy-nominated Noel, 2010’s gold-certified Illuminations, 2013’s gold-certified All That Echoes, 2015’s worldwide million selling Stages, and most recently 2018’s Bridges.
Claire Richards has launched a successful solo career this year with the single On My Own and album My Wildest Dreams. Claire, however, signed her first record deal 23 years ago and has achieved enormous success with Steps, racking up fourteen top 5 hits, three number 1 albums, a Brit Award and 20 million record sales. The iconic pop group reunited for last year’s acclaimed Tears on the Dancefloor album, which debuted at number 2, and a hugely popular 22-date sold out arena tour. But now, Claire is stepping into the spotlight alone with My Wildest Dreams breaking the UK Top 10.
