Performers: 1- Bryan Adams: Internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Bryan Adams was born in Ontario, Canada at the end of the '50s. He has more rock classics to his name than you could shake a stick at, including '(Everything I Do) I Do It For You', 'Summer of 69' and his first-ever No.1 single,' Heaven'. Over the years he has appeared at a proliferation of large-scale benefit events, such as Live-Aid, London Freedomfest and Amnesty International's Conspiracy Of Hope tour. 2- Chris De Burgh: The crooner of 'Lady in Red' and 'A Spaceman Came Travelling' tours to promote his new album 'The Road to Freedom'. 3- Daniel Bedingfield: There's never a dull moment with this chart-topping hitmaker. He wrote his first hit on his bedroom PC, and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Whether you're after slushy ballads 'You're Not the One', smooth garage 'Gotta Get Through This' or the manic beats on 'Friday' - it's all here. 4- Deep Purple, Peter Frampton, Thunder: Ian Gillan leads the Smoke On The Water legends, with the former Herd and Humble Pie megastar close behind, and veteran Brit rockers to start the proceedings with a crunch. 5- Faithless: Come and check out whether God is still a DJ, when Maxi Jazz and Sister Bliss hit the road. 6- Gabrielle: The undisputed queen of nu-soul. 7- Jools Holland & His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra: Expect a jazzy night out with the amiable celeb pianist and host of BBC2's 'Later with Jools Holland'. Backed by his rhythm and blues big band, he is joined as always by special guest vocalists. 8- Lee Evans - XL Tour 2005: Lee Evans embarks on a fifth UK tour - his biggest to date. Since cutting his teeth on the alternative comedy circuit in 1987, Lee has become one of the country's most revered stand-up acts.

 

  He has enjoyed notable success on the screen, in addition to winning the Perrier Comedy Award back in 1993. Some material performed on this tour may feature adult-only content. 9- Lulu: Legendary British singer who has appeared in the charts for five straight decades, performing songs from her greatest hits album.

More jazzy than Harry Connick Jr and less camp than our Robbie's attempts at swing, he brings his neo-croon to the UK. 12- Paul Weller:

 

Former Jam and Style Council member takes his undeniable mod antics around the UK yet again. There will be plenty of the old stuff plus selections from more recent outings such as 'Wild Wood' and 'Under The Influence'. 13- Status Quo - XS All Areas: Francis and Rick head out to promote their best of and biography, both entitled XS All Areas. 14- The Beach Boys: Mike Love and Bruce Johnston head out on another crowd-pleasing jaunt.
