Three new exciting additions to the star-studded lineup for this summer’s Nocturne Live 2023 concert series at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire have just been confirmed: Grammy-winning US jazzman Gregory Porter, the Scottish dance-pop sensation Emeli Sandé, and the Lighthouse Family’s Tunde Baiyewu. They will appear as part of an exclusive triple bill on the evening of Friday, June 16th, 2023 and will join headliners ex-Commodores and Motown superstar Lionel Richie and legendary DJ Pete Tong, at the event, which runs from June 14 – 18 2023.
Gregory Porter, who returns to Blenheim Palace for the third time, following his sold-out 2015 performance supporting Van Morrison and his 2017 headline slot, says: “I have many wonderful memories of performing at Blenheim Palace and I’m looking forward to returning this summer to perform alongside the inimitable voices of Emeli Sandé and Tunde. I hope my friends and fans in the UK can join us for what I’m sure will be a beautiful celebration of music.”
Since its inception in 2015, the Nocturne Live series has presented performances from the likes of Elton John, Kylie Minogue, Gary Barlow, Simply Red, Nile Rodgers, Noel Gallagher, Gregory Porter, Van Morrison, Tears for Fears, Gladys Knight, Elvis Costello, Simple Minds and Ennio Morricone amongst many others, transforming the 10,000-capacity Great Court at Blenheim Palace into the ultimate outdoor concert arena.
