Joss Stone to perform at Royal Albert Hall celebration of Sir Michael Caine's movie career
On Wednesday, October 1 there will be a special event at the Royal Albert Hall in London where Sir Michael Caine will celebrate a life in movies, and he will be joined by songstress Joss Stone.
Vocal sensation Stone is set to perform songs from 'Alfie', 'The Italian Job' and 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels', and two-time Oscar-winner Caine will be interviewed live on stage by Jonathan Ross. All profits from the show will go directly to the NSPCC, which is a charity very close to Caine’s heart.
He explained: "When I was a little boy I was evacuated for a couple of weeks and I was very ill-treated, so I’ve always wanted to help children and I’m happy to support the NSPCC. And I am thrilled to be appearing at the iconic Royal Albert Hall to hear music from some of my films, including scores by my friends Hans Zimmer and John Barry."
Event Producer Tommy Pearson also issued a statement on the upcoming celebration of Caine's career: “It’s a great honour to be working with Michael on this event. Bringing together his unique, engaging presence and the world-class musicians of the London Symphony Orchestra to play music from his movies is a dream come true, and all for a great cause.”
The last few remaining tickets are available now and they're priced from £30-£80, and available from Ticketmaster along with the Royal Albert Hall's official website.
