Elton John will be at the heart of a memorial concert to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Princess Diana death next year.

Celebrated music performers, including Elton John, Duran Duran, Joss Stone, Bryan Ferry, and Pharrell Williams, have all been tapped to perform in the memorial concert held to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Princess Diana death slated to take place next year.

The charity concert dubbed "The Concert for Diana" will be held at Wembley stadium on July 1st, coincides with Diana's 46th birthday. Subsequent to the concert, a memorial service will be held in London on august 31st, marking the date the princess was killed in Paris.

On the planned concert, Prince William says, "We (Prince Harry) both wanted to put our stamp on it. We want it to represent exactly what our mother would have wanted. So therefore the church service alone isn't enough. We wanted to have this big concert full of energy, full of the sort of fun and happiness, which I know she would have wanted."

Tickets go on sale starting from Dec 13th with proceeds will benefit Centrepoint, a charity that helps the homeless and which William supports, and Sentebale, a fund for the children of Lesotho co-founded by Harry. "They're both charities that continue on from our mother's legacy," William said.
