AMERICAN legend Bonnie Raitt and jazz sensation Jamie Cullum have been confirmed for the Summer Pops as a parade of stars prepares to appear at the Kings Dock later this year.

Once again the Big Top Arena will play host to over 30 shows featuring some massive names in music will be confirmed in the coming weeks. The Summer Pops is expected to attract over 100,000 people.

Already confirmed are Britain's hottest boy band BUSTED, whose two shows are now virtually sold out. There are only VIP tickets for July 9th, while a few tickets remain for July 8th.

The Bonnie Raitt show is a massive coup, as she has never played Liverpool before. With a unique style that spans blues, country and rock, she has won nine grammy awards over decades of work as an artiste.

At another end of the musical spectrum, Jamie Cullum's career is only just beginning and in the last 12 months he has catapulted into the limelight, smashing all records. Last year's 'Twentysomething' album became the fastest selling jazz album in UK chart history. 

Incredibly, this made him the biggest-selling UK Jazz artist of all time at the age of just 21. His deal with Universal Records was also the first £1 million record deal for a jazz artist.

Councillor Mike Storey, leader of Liverpool City Council, said:- "I am delighted and immensely proud that once again the Summer Pops is shaping up to be one of the the biggest and best music festivals in the country, and one which could only be held in the official World Capital of Pop. It looks like there will be something for every musical taste."

Tickets for Bonnie Raitt, Jamie Cullum and Busted are all on sale now. Call the Box Office on 0870 151 4000
