cheektocheek-desktopLady Gaga and Tony Bennett have announced a show at London's Royal Albert Hall. The one-off show - which will take place on June 8, 2015 - is being hosted in aid of WellChild, the national charity for seriously ill children. The pair will perform songs from their collaborative album Cheek to Cheek, which peaked at number ten in the UK last month. They will be accompanied by a big band and full orchestra for the concert. Colin Dyer, Chief Executive of WellChild, said: "WellChild is thrilled that Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett are supporting WellChild through this concert. The proceeds will be a massive boost to our work to support seriously ill children and their families across the UK." The announcement follows Lady Gaga's three nights at The O2 over the past week. She will return to the UK with her artRAVE show in November for concerts in Birmingham, Glasgow, Sheffield and Newcastle. Jessie J recently revealed that she is hoping to duet with Lady Gaga, as she wants to "see what goes through her head" - read more here.
