    SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- On July 1, 2007 at the
 new Wembley Stadium "Concert for Diana" was staged in front of an audience
 of 62,000 and beamed to a worldwide TV audience of many hundreds of
 millions in over 140 countries. The concert, organised by Prince William
 and Prince Harry to celebrate the life of their mother, Diana, Princess of
 Wales, on what would have been her 46th birthday proved to be a spectacular
 success -- with the UK TV viewing figure peaking at a massive 15 million.
 The entire concert, and many extra features, is captured on a two disc DVD
 which will be released on November 13 from Hip-O/UMe.

     Last Summer's "Concert for Diana" featured a truly unique artist
 line-up, spanning a broad artistic spectrum ...from Pharrell Williams to
 the English National Ballet, with the criteria being that the artists
 invited were some of the favourites of the Princess and the Princes: this
 resulted in an intoxicating blend of rock, pop, rap, classical and musical
 theatre. The two disc DVD, filmed by Janet Fraser Crook, features all of
 the 21 memorable performances by many of the world's greatest musicians:
 Elton John, Rod Stewart, P. Diddy, Joss Stone, Bryan Ferry, Natasha
 Bedingfield, Fergie, Pharrell Williams, Lily Allen, Take That, Roger
 Hodgson of Supertramp, Tom Jones, James Morrison, Orson, Joe Perry, Kanye
 West, The Feeling, Status Quo, Will Young, Nelly Furtado and Duran Duran.
 In recognition of Diana's love of ballet, the English National Ballet gave
 a spell binding performance of an extract from Swan Lake, and the Andrew
 Lloyd Webber musicals medley, packed with surprise guests Anastacia, Connie
 Fisher, Andrea Ross, Andrea Bocelli, Sarah Brightman, Josh Groban, Donny
 Osmond, Jason Donovan and Lee Mead, reflected the Princess's fondness for
 musical theatre. Star presenters included Kiefer Sutherland, Sienna Miller,
 David Beckham, Ricky Gervais, Dennis Hopper and Jamie Oliver.
     The "Concert for Diana" DVD, like the concert itself, is presented in
 three acts and includes much fascinating unseen footage. With a running
 time of over five and a half hours, the "Concert for Diana" DVD includes
 all the artists and presenters as well as a fascinating behind-the-scenes
 documentary. The DVD also contains all the poignant 'Diana and me' films, a
 series of short films about Diana which were interwoven through the concert
 and give compelling testimony from people of all ages and walks of life
 about how the Princess touched so many people's lives.
     The front cover of the DVD features one of the best-loved images of
 Diana, taken by Mario Testino at her last official portrait session. It is
 one of the photographs currently on show as part of Testino's exhibition in
 the State Apartments at Kensington Palace. Accompanying the DVD is a 20
 page booklet which contains a wonderful photographic record of the events
 on July 1 at Wembley stadium.
     The charities benefiting from the sale of the "Concert for Diana" DVD
 will be identical to the concert beneficiaries -- The Diana Princess of
 Wales Memorial Fund, Sentebale, the Lesotho children's charity Prince Harry
 founded in her memory, and the six charities of which the Princess was
 Patron at the time of her death -- Centrepoint, English National Ballet,
 Great Ormond Street Hospital, The National Aids Trust, The Leprosy Mission
 and The Royal Marsden Hospital.
     In the days after the concert, the media and public both in the UK and
 around the world agreed that an event that had been planned as a fabulous
 birthday party had succeeded in being exactly that ... an occasion full of
 fun and laughter, and of a sense of joyous celebration.
