Sir Elton said, "I'm delighted to be kicking off this year's Radio 2 Electric Proms, particularly as I'll be joined on stage by Leon who is one of my musical heroes. The performance will feature some very special guests and memorable moments."

Robert Plant will take to the stage with the Band Of Joy and the London Oriana Choir on Friday 29th October.

Closing the 2010 R2 Electric Proms will be Neil Diamond who will be performing live tracks, for the first time, from his forthcoming album, and favourites from his own classic back catalogue of music in the intimate surroundings of the Roundhouse on Saturday 30th October. Neil Diamond said, "I'm trying to make it special. I want to do some songs from my new album, as I've never done those particular songs in public before.... Of course I'll throw in a bunch of favourites and hope those can be brought off well and generally just try to have a good time and I hope the audience enjoy the show."
