THIS summer sees the first ever music concert series to be held at London’s Royal Hospital Chelsea – and you can be in the audience thanks to Army&You!

The historic venue, which was founded by King Charles II in 1682 and is home to 300 Chelsea Pensioners, is hosting three Live in Chelsea gigs over a three-day period in June in partnership with Kilimanjaro. Each performance will take place in a fully-seated auditorium in the Royal Hospital’s central courtyard.

Rufus Wainwright will get the series underway on Friday, June 12. The distinctive vocalist has an impressive back catalogue and has worked with stars including Elton John, Joni Mitchell and the Pet Shop Boys.

And the musical spectacular will be brought to a stunning conclusion by Alison Moyet, who will be focusing on the electronic sounds found on 2013’s The minutes and follow-up live album minutes and seconds.

Major General David McDowall CBE, Lieutenant Governor and Chief Executive Officer of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, said: “We are very much looking forward to welcoming music fans into the Royal Hospital Chelsea this summer, especially those who have not visited this historical home before.

“A portion of the ticket sale proceeds will go towards funding the care of the Chelsea Pensioners, as well as the ongoing maintenance of the Grade I listed site. All who manage to get tickets are guaranteed to experience a very special evening.”
