About the concertEdit

This was a tribute concert that Diana's sons, Prince William and Prince Harry helped to organiza and host. The concert was held on the day which would have been Diana's 46th birthday and just before the 10th anniversary of her death on 31 August.

In December 2006, 22,500 tickets were made available for purchase, selling out in just 17 minutes while 63,000 people turned out to Wembley Stadium. At the end of the performances, a video montage of Diana as a child was presented, accompanied by the Queen song "These Are the Days of Our Lives".

The concert started at 16:00 BST and finished at approximately 22:15 BST - there were two short intermissions during the concert.

A 2-Disc DVD set of the full concert was released on the 5 November 2007. A Blu-ray high definition release of the full concert and documentary was released in November 2008.

Comments from Simon Le Bon before the event:

"We first met Diana in 1983 at a Prince's Trust concert in London and were immediately struck by her remarkable charisma and charm. She was effervescent, with a passion for everything she did, and she always loved both music and the arts.
"The concert next summer seems an entirely fitting way to celebrate her life and her work. We are honoured that she always referred to Duran Duran as her favourite band as she was certainly our favourite princess. We are delighted to have been asked to participate in what promises to be a very special event."
