Placido Domingo is officially the closer…
The 73-year-old Spanish tenor and conductor has been announced as the closing act at this year’s iTunes Festival in London.
Domingo, known for his versatile and strong voice, will perform September 30 at the Roundhouse – the last performance of a month-long, starry line-up, festival organizers announced.
Deadmau5 kicks off the concerts on Monday night, followed by headline sets from pop names like Pharrell Williams, Calvin Harris, The Script and Ed Sheeran.
Kylie Minogue, Kasabian, Mary J. Blige, Blondie, Maroon 5 and Robert Plant are also playing the festival.
The organizers quoted Domingo as saying he was thrilled to appear and for “the recognition that this brings to the unique and magnificent world of opera and of classical music.”
One of The Three Tenors, he has sung 144 different roles as of the end of 2013. Domingo has more recently taken on conducting opera and concert performances, and is the general director of the Los Angeles Opera in California.
Tickets are for competition winners, but gigs can be streamed live in more than 100 countries or watched on-demand.
