Proms in the Park will welcome singer Sophie

Award-winning singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor is coming to BBC Proms in the Park on Glasgow Green.

Sophie, who shot to fame as a vocalist on Spiller’s number one single Groovejet, then followed it up with Take Me Home and her worldwide smash hit, Murder on the Dancefloor.

She will be in Glasgow for the event on Saturday 8 September.

In 2014 Sophie – who competed in Strictly Come Dancing in 2013 – embarked on her debut singer/songwriter album Wanderlust with Ed Harcourt as co-writer and producer. The album spent three weeks in the UK top 10 album chart and spawning the hit single Young Blood.

Sophie said: ‘I can’t wait to perform with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, being part of the Last Night celebrations is very exciting!’

The world class BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Stephen Bell, takes centre stage performing classical pieces, traditional Scottish reels, as well as some well-known favourites. Along with

Sophie Ellis-Bextor, the BBC SSO will be joined by a number of special guests, to be announced shortly, who will bring a range of performances live to Glasgow Green for an evening of magical music.

The Glasgow event, a highlight of the city’s cultural calendar, will be live on both TV and radio. It will be presented by tenor and BBC Radio Scotland presenter Jamie MacDougall.

Proms in the Park is part of the annual spectacular culmination of two months of music-making at the BBC Proms, as the world-famous Last Night celebrations spill out from London’s Royal Albert Hall and thousands of people come together at venues across the UK to be part of the magic of the Last Night.

Tickets for the event are on sale on Friday 4 May at noon and are available from HERE or by calling 0844 844 0444 costing £15.50 and £7.50 for concessions.
