Thanks for posting kmac. I had spotted some info of that already during the week on BBC and here

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcone/

one can see a preview of a TV broadcast tonight at BBC1 7.30pm UK time which is an interview with Princes William and Harry, also about the Concert.

And, it is also broadcasted on BBC 1 on Sunday.. here is some info

Concert for Diana
Sun 1 Jul, 3:30 pm - 10:00 pm 390mins

On what would have been Princess Diana's 46th birthday, her sons Princes William and Harry welcome the world to Wembley to celebrate their mother's life. This unique concert, inspired by Diana's love of music, brings together artists who span the generations from Sir Elton John, Duran Duran and Rod Stewart through to Take That, Kanye West, Joss Stone, Will Young and Lily Allen. The English National Ballet perform Diana's personal favourite Swan Lake and the nation's newly-crowned Joseph stars in a technicolour musical tribute from Andrew Lloyd Webber. Jamie Theakston, Claudia Winkleman and Fearne Cotton present from Wembley Stadium with special backstage interviews, rare home movie footage of the Princess growing up and testimonies from people whose lives she touched.

Except for Elton John and Hot Rod Stewart, I could care less about this concert. There's only a few people in it that will be remembered on Di's twentieth anniversary. Without Sir Paul, it's no big deal.

Bringing this up as a reminder.

The lineup isn't the greatest but I am a real sucker for live music so I will be tuning in. You never know when you may see or hear something interesting when music is done live.

almost 8pm uk time

it is absolutely breathtaking... hardly seen anything this special in my life

It's not just a concert 'for' .. it is an amazing tribute and the artists of which so so so many were not announced...to all...it is firstly the things they show of Diana...which probably William and Harry have set up with ..

Just amazing...

I really enjoyed seeing Bryan Ferry again, he still sounds pretty good. Always has seemed like a class act to me.

Elton seemed in good voice opening the show.

Rod Stewart gave a solid performance.

Bocelli is always a joy to hear.

Only a few glitches.

The Boys should be very proud of themselves, the feeling of the show, the production, the minimal commercialization, the balance of types of acts, it has been very entertaining and respectful. Their mother would most likely be proud as well.

I managed to watch some parts of the show, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Bryan Ferry, Duran Duran, Elton John, The Ballet, Lily Allen, Fergie, James Morrison, Nelly Furtado and Status Quo. - I liked Lily Allen most.

I didn't see much of it but it looked like it was pretty good from what I did see. I am pleased Elton didn't sing the Diana version of Candle in the Wind.

They were saying on the news today that a lot of acts had to cut short because time was running out. Apparently Will Young was going to sing "Leave Right Now" which I love but there was not time and Natasha Bedingfield had another song to do....but I cannot stand her so that is no loss to me at all.

Yeah, "Tiny Dancer" just buried me, gorgeous.

I loved the home movies of her as a child that they showed at the end.

It is awesome to see Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran enjoying a chat with the young royals.
