News: Beverley Knight and Ronan Keating Announced As Final Headliners For Kew The Music 2024

Beverley Knight and Ronan Keating have been announced as the final headliners for Kew The Music 2024.Pop legend Ronan Keating will headline the concert series on Wednesday 10th July, whilst the Queen of UK Soul Beverley Knight will headline on Saturday 13th July.

Tickets for the shows will go on pre-sale from Thursday 22nd February at 10am, and general sale on Friday 23rd February at 10am from www.kewthemusic.org.

Beverley and Ronan join the previously announced headliners for the summer concert series: MIKA on Tuesday 9th July 2024, Passenger on Thursday 11th July 2024, JLS on Friday 12th July 2024, and Richard Ashcroft on Sunday 14th July, as well as an in conversation show with Monty Don on 8th July.

The annual, week-long festival of picnic concerts is set in the stunning UNESCO World Heritage site, Kew Gardens in southwest London, and has become one of the fixtures in the London summer music calendar.

Established as one of the most spectacular summer concert venues in the UK, the shows are a hit amongst all generations of music lovers. Unusually for outdoor events, guests are welcome to bring their own food and drink or can enjoy the open-air bars, street food stalls, or hospitality options including hamper and BBQ packages.

Beverley Knight is no stranger to the spotlight and is a performer who can do it all – both a star of the West End stage and an astounding singer with a prolific music career, with huge hits like ‘Shoulda Woulda Coulda’, ‘Come As You Are’, ‘Keep This Fire Burning’, and more.

A national treasure, Beverley was awarded an MBE in 2007 for services to British music and charity, has won three MOBO Awards, been nominated for Best Female at the Brit Awards three times, and after several nominations, last year won her first Olivier Award.

Beverley marked the milestone of turning ‘50’ last year with her ninth studio album ‘The Fifth Chapter’, including 5 massive radio singles & her biggest ever tour of the UK. Knight will star this year in Sister Act The Musical in the West End, following on from recent roles in the likes of Memphis The Musical, Cats, and The Drifters Girl.

Ronan Keating shot to fame in the early 90’s with Boyzone, who in their first five years became one of the biggest pop bands ever, enjoying 16 top five hit singles, six of which hit the No.1 spot, amongst them the likes of ‘Words’, ‘No Matter What’, ‘All That I Need’, and their first hit, ‘Love Me For A Reason’.

In August of 2000, Ronan released his debut, self-titled album. It shot straight to No.1 in the UK Album Charts, with two No.1 singles. It contained the two number one singles ‘When You Say Nothing At All’ and ‘Life Is A Rollercoaster’, and went on to sell 4.4 million copies around the world, firmly establishing Ronan as an artist in his own right.

Since then, Ronan has taken part in hugely successful Boyzone reunions over the last 15 years, including a fitting end with the triumphant ‘Final Five’ sell-out shows at the iconic London Palladium in October in 2019, as well as releasing further solo albums and completing solo worldwide tours.

Alongside his music career, Ronan has also been successful on stage and screen, performing an acclaimed run in the West End in ‘Once’, and presenting on the likes of BBC One’s The One Show and being a judge on ITV’s The Voice Kids. In September 2017 Ronan joined Magic Radio to re-launch the Magic Breakfast show alongside co-host Harriet Scott. The show broadcasts across the UK to over 1.5 million people.
