Sir Elton John - Sir Elton John joins Barclaycard Summer Time

Sir Elton John has joined the line-up for Barclaycard's British Summer Time Hyde Park festival.

The 'Candle in the Wind' singer will join a stellar line-up of artists including The Rolling Stones and Bon Jovi in headlining the two-week music and arts extravaganza in London on July 12.

Elton will be joined by former Kinks frontman Ray Davies and US star Elvis Costello on The Great Oak Stage on the same evening.

Concert organiser AEG's president of international live touring, Rob Hallett, said: ''Hyde Park on Friday 12th July will witness a fantastic celebration of great British and American songwriters. Imagine how many hits you are going to hear between Elton, Ray and Elvis. This one's a real treat.''

As well as being serenaded by the 'Rocket Man' star, festival-goers will also be treated to Bon Jovi - who are set to headline the first night on July 5 - and two headlining gigs from The Rolling Stones, who perform on July 6 and July 13.

Tickets to see Elton, Ray and Elvis go on sale on Thursday (23.05.13).

Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park runs from July 5 to 14.
