A spectacular concert Live at Edinburgh Castle with a glittering array of big names will be shown on BBC One, ahead of the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Presented by The One Show’s Alex Jones on Saturday 19 July, Scotland's capital city will be welcoming a wide range of international musical acts, including Jessie J, Kaiser Chiefs, Culture Club, Smokey Robinson, Rizzle Kicks, Paloma Faith, Katherine Jenkins, Il Divo, OneRepublic, Alfie Boe, Ella Henderson and Pumeza – with more names to follow.

The music will also be interspersed with comedy on the night, as Bill Bailey performs his unique brand of musical humour with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Fred MacAulay makes a special guest appearance.

Alex Jones, Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson and Fred MacAulay launched the concert on the grounds of Edinburgh Castle on Thursday 5 June ahead of more than 8,000 tickets going on sale at 9am on Friday 6 June.

Some of the performances will be accompanied by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and a house band, led by Mike Stevens, who has worked with artists including Gary Barlow and Annie Lennox.

Comedian Fred MacAulay added: “This is a really great event to get the party started for the Commonwealth Games, and to get so many great artists on the one stage makes it very special. I hope that, not only the people of Edinburgh, but also the whole of the UK enjoy the show.”

Some of the performances will be accompanied by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and a house band, led by Mike Stevens, who has worked with artists including Gary Barlow and Annie Lennox.

Executive producer Guy Freeman says: “We are delighted that such an exciting array of incredibly talented artists are coming together for what will undoubtedly be a magical night, at this iconic venue.
