BBC Radio 2 Electric Proms tickets go on sale Thursday morning at 9am, and we are desperate for tickets to see Rumer sing with Elton John.

Sir Elton John will team up with his mentor Leon Russell and their young fans Plan B and Rumer to celebrate Sir Elton and Leon’s classic songs and launch the R2 Electric Proms on Thursday 28 October. This intimate concert from London’s Roundhouse will be broadcast live on Radio 2 and will form the centre piece of A Night With Sir Elton John on BBC Two on Saturday 30 October, together with a new documentary about Elton’s life and musical journey.
Sir Elton said: “I’m delighted to be kicking off this year’s Radio 2 Electric Proms, particularly as I’ll be joined on stage by Leon who is one of my musical heroes. The performance will feature some very special guests and memorable moments.”
Closing the 2010 R2 Electric Proms will be Neil Diamond who will be performing live tracks, for the first time, from his forthcoming album and favourites from his own classic back catalogue of music at the Roundhouse on Saturday 30 October. The show will be broadcast live on Radio 2 at 8pm and on BBC Two on Saturday 13 November as part of A Night With Neil Diamond, a night dedicated to highlighting Diamond’s music heritage and influences. A new, exclusive documentary will also be broadcast on BBC Two which will showcase Diamond’s prolific and rich music career and feature an interview with the man himself.

Plan B will also perform with Elton, adding a bit of edge to the night!

Neil Diamond said: “I’m trying to make it special. I want to do some songs from my new album, as I’ve never done those particular songs in public before… Of course I’ll throw in a bunch of favourites and hope those can be brought off well and generally just try to have a good time and I hope the audience enjoy the show.”
Sweet Caroline…..wave your arms in the air and sing!
Tickets for the R2 Electric Proms go on sale at 9am on Thursday 23 September and will only be available via www.bbc.co.uk/radio2 costing £25 each.
