Greenwich Music Time, London’s most stunning series of open-air concerts, announces its first headliners of 2020. Sarah Brightman, Lea Salonga & John Barrowman, McFly, Lewis Capaldi and Ms. Lauryn Hill are all confirmed for stand-alone shows, taking place between 6-11 July at London’s Old Royal Naval College. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Fri 13 December and are available at greenwichmusictime.co.uk
Sarah Brightman, international singing superstar and world’s best selling soprano, is confirmed to open Greenwich Music Time on Mon 6 July. Sarah’s work transcends any specific musical genre, synthesizing many influences and inspirations into a unique sound and vision. Today, she remains among the world’s most prominent performers, with global sales of 30 million units having received more than 180 gold and platinum awards in over 40 countries. Last month, Sarah performed a triumphant homecoming concert to a sell-out Royal Albert Hall in London, her first UK show for 13 years. Sarah brought the historic venue to its feet with multiple standing ovations and spine-tingling vocal skill.
Continuing the classic theme is Olivier and Tony Award-winner, Lea Salonga. Following two sold-out shows at the London Palladium, Lea Salonga is back in the capital for 2020. Arguably one of the world’s most gifted singers, Lea will unite with the ultimate showman John Barrowman for a magical performance at Greenwich Music Time on Tues 7 July. Together, the duo will provide a world-class concert.
McFly are confirmed for a night of explosive pop on Sat 11 July. The band delighted fans last month by reuniting for a one-off show in London after a three-year hiatus. With seven UK no.1 singles, five top 10 albums, six sell-out tours and 10 million records sold worldwide, McFly are one of the most significant pop acts of the 21st century.
Artist of the moment, Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi scored the biggest selling album and single of 2019. He’s taken the world by storm topping the charts on both sides of the Atlantic with his single “Someone You Loved”. The international superstar will now headline his show in 2020 at Greenwich Music Time on Thurs 9 July.
Eight-time Grammy award winning Ms. Lauryn Hill tops the bill on Fri 10 July. The iconic artist will bring her unmistakable power and soulful vocals to Greenwich for a soaring performance this summer. Featuring both her classics and newer material, prepare for Ms Hill to give a sensational performance.
Six standalone shows make up the Greenwich Music Time series of concerts. Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Old Royal Naval College, the London city skyline and the Thames, GMT 2020 will be one of the highlights of the summer.
Peter Taylor, Director of Cuffe & Taylor, said: “We’re delighted to announce our first headliners and what a line-up! This is an event like no other and there is truly something for everyone. We love seeing the crowds reaction to these shows, soaking up the atmosphere with incredible live music in a stunning setting. Greenwich Music Time is a very special series of concerts, and we can’t wait to bring them back for 2020.”
