'Concert For Diana' Set For This Weekend
June 29, 2007 at 5:38 AM (PT)
Some of the biggest names in the music world are set to perform at WEMBLEY STADIUM in LONDON this weekend to celebrate the life of PRINCESS DIANA. Many of the Princess's favorite acts, including ELTON JOHN and DURAN DURAN, are among the lineup at the "Concert For DIANA." JOSS STONE, TAKE THAT, LILY ALLEN and KANYE WEST are also on the bill.
The show is organized by Princes WILLIAM and HARRY. They came up with the idea to pay tribute to their mother almost a decade after she was killed in a car crash in PARIS.
"Hopefully it would be one of those things that she would absolutely adore because the whole point is, this is for her -- it's not for any other reason," said WILLIAM. "We want this year to go by and for people to remember all those good things she did."
Proceeds from the concert will go to charities supported by the late Princess, and to charities of which the Princes are patrons.
