Solo concert for Van Outen
SUNDAY 07/03/2004 08:40:21

News Menu Button Denise Van Outen is to appear in her first solo concert this summer.

The TV presenter turned stage star has already proved she can sing in West End shows Chicago and Tell Me On A Sunday.

But she has always dreamed of a pop career and will perform solo at the Hampton Court festival on June 18.

The 29-year-old promises audiences ``something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue``.

The old and borrowed are likely to be songs from her two musicals.

Van Outen won rave reviews for her role as Roxie Hart in Chicago both here and on Broadway. And the critics loved her performance in Andrew Lloyd Webber`s one-woman show Tell Me On A Sunday.

Her next project is a new Saturday night entertainment show for BBC1 in which she teams up with old Big Breakfast partner Johnny Vaughan.

Hampton Court, the Surrey palace once home to Henry VIII, will host the June 8-19 annual festival.

Van Morrison, Bryan Ferry, Nigel Kennedy, Joaquin Cortes, Bryn Terfel and Jools Holland are among the stars who will perform.

Hayley Westenra, the 16-year-old singing sensation from New Zealand, will close the festival.

Sir Elton John was the star of last year`s event.
