Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park: Celine Dion Featuring Josh Groban & Claire Richards

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park today announces guests for Celine Dion’s first ever headlining show in the Royal Park this July. Special guest and global superstar Josh Groban 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 – according to Billboard,

“the only artist who has had two albums appear on the Top 20 Best-Selling Albums list of the past decade.”

Josh’s 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 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 into the UK Top 10.

Claire Richards says:

“Performing at Hyde Park on the same stage as my idol Celine really is a dream come true and I’m so excited to perform tracks from my album with my live band.”

Celine Dion will headline Hyde Park for the very first time on the Great Oak Stage on Friday 5th July 2019. Tickets are on sale now.
