Gary Barlow set for Radio 2 '2DAY' concert

Take That superstar Gary Barlow has been confirmed to perform at a Radio 2 concert next month in London.

The Friday Night Is Music Night event, named '2DAY', will take place at the Hackney Empire on May 10 and the 'Sing' hitmaker will treat gig-goers to tracks from his back catalogue.

Other artists who will also perform live at the show include Simply Red's Mick Hucknall, Elaine Paige and Jamie Cullum, and each star is set to be accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra.

The controller of BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music, Bob Shennan, said in an official statement:

"2DAY is a fantastic way for us to showcase the diversity and range of our output. This year, the spotlight is shining firmly on orchestral music, which is very fitting as Friday Night Is Music Night - one of our flagship programmes - celebrates an important birthday."
