Annie Lennox to perform in charity concert at Colosseum in Rome

Time for Change concert in Rome on 10 September

Scottish singer Annie Lennox is to perform in a charity concert against the backdrop of Rome's Colosseum on Sunday to raise funds for various non-profits including Rotary International’s End Polio Now initiative.

 

The former Eurythmics star, 68, will perform on piano for the 'Time for Change' concert which will also feature Oscar-winning Italian composer Nicola Piovani and Sanremo winner Mahmood.

 

The open-air concert, reserved for just 400 guests, will include art work by Italian sculptor Jago and a performance by Derin Tomak who contracted polio as a baby and is famed for dancing on crutches.

 

The charity event will result in the closure of the terrace of the Temple of Venus and Rome until Tuesday 12 September, Parco archaeologico del Colosseo announced.

 

For more details about the concert see the Time for Change website.
