Russell Watson, who with his unique style has achieved phenomenal status as an award-winning, platinum-selling artist, will be headlining Sunday's Classical evening line up. Currently working on a deeply romantic album with the Roma Sinfonietta (Ennio Morricone's orchestra) to be recorded in Rome, the material ranges from a Puccini love duet to well known and loved classical pieces including Italian film themes and popular ballads.

‘We are delighted to host such a high profile line up for our Summer Concert Series Weekend,' commented Andrew Mallery, Commercial Operations Director for Mercedes-Benz Cars, ‘We are excited to be developing our Concert Series with so many artists playing at our unique venue and we hope that this weekend of music appeals to everyone this summer.'

Liz Hobbs MBE, CEO of Liz Hobbs Group Ltd, producers of the Summer Concert Series added, ‘Mercedes-Benz World is a quality venue with its impressive and imposing building as a dramatic backdrop to the Summer Concert Series. The line-up for each evening has such a broad appeal we would advise people to secure their tickets early as both of the Summer Concerts will be popular.'
