Andrew Lloyd Webber's Birthday in the Park

Planning to be in London next month? Then you might want to swing by Hyde Park, where Andrew Lloyd Webber is celebrating his birthday with an incredible star-studded concert. His birthday is actually on March 22, but everyone is celebrating with him on September 14.

The concert will feature performances by Steve Balsamo (Jesus Christ Superstar in the West End and Broadway), Duncan James (Chicago in the West End), Lee Mead (currently playing the title role in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), Idina Menzel (Wicked in the West End and Broadway), Elaine Paige (original Eva Peron in Lloyd Webber's Evita and original Grizabella in Cats, who also took over as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard in the West End and on Broadway), Rhydian ("X-Factor"), Joss Stone, Julian Lloyd Webber (the composer's brother, and a classical cello player), Hayley Westenra, stars of BBC One's "I'd Do Anything" and the 100-voice Crouch End Festival Chorus. They will be accompanied by the 70-piece BBC Concert Orchestra.
