Beyoncé and Rita Ora will be performing in the first global concert for women's empowerment being held at London's Twickenham Staduim.

Queen Bey co-founded the Gucci Chime For Change campaign so it's no suprise she'll be headlining the televised gig, The Sound of Change Live.

Bey will be joined by the likes of Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding, Florence + the Machine, HAIM, Iggy Azalea, John Legend, Timbaland and more.

As well as music, the concert will also show inspirational short films and stories highlighting women's global issues.

The event will be produced by Control Room's Kevin Wall and Aaron Grosky, who were behind Live Earth and Live Aid.



We were at the swanky Soho Hotel Press conference when the news was announced by Chime For Change co-founder Salma Hayek Pinault and John Legend announced the gig.

Bey couldn't be there but she has spoken about why she's doing the gig saying, "Our goal is to call for change for girls and women in the loudest voice possible.

"I am excited for us to come together on June 1st to bring the issues Education, Health and Justice for girls and women to the world stage."

Ticket buyers will be invited to help support charities for women by cashing in vouchers which come as part of the concert ticket and funding a selection of the many projects supporting Education, Health and Justice For Girls.

The concert will be broadcast live on TV as it takes placeon 1 June 2013, though the broadcaster has yet to be announced.

Tickets will go on sale at 9am on 27 March 2013 and start at £55 each. For more information head to Chimeforchange.org.

We reckon Beyoncé will treat us to another rendition of I Was Here...
