Joining Robbie in Hyde Park – his only UK open-air show of the year – are US dance pop giants BLACK EYED PEAS, one of the most loved British bands in recent memory KEANE, renowned Glasgow band TEXAS and Welsh band FEEDER.
The BLACK EYED PEAS’ first hit in 2003 ‘Where Is the Love’ was the UK’s biggest selling single of the year and since then, they’ve released a solid stream of infectious chart hits include ‘I Gotta Feeling’, ‘Boom Boom Pow’ and ‘Pump It’. The group’s seventh and most recent studio album, Masters of the Sun Vol. 1, was released in October last year.
KEANE are one of the most loved British bands in recent memory. Led by the soaring vocals of front man Tom Chaplin, their debut album Hopes and Fears shot them to the mainstream in 2004 with the hit ‘Somewhere Only We Know’, earning them the BRIT Award for Best British Album the following year. Keane revealed this January that after six years of hiatus, they were back with new material and BST Hyde Park will be their first London festival performance in over seven years.
Renowned Glasgow band TEXAS are also added to the bill. Led by Sharleen Spiteri, they had a global hit with their debut single, ‘I Don’t Want A Lover’ in 1989. In 1997, the band released White on Blonde, which spawned the massive hits ‘Halo’, ‘Black Eyed Boy’ and ‘Say What You Want’, the latter of which they recorded a version of with Method Man from the Wu-Tang Clan. To date, Texas has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide over their 30-year career, and completed a two-year World Tour in 2018.
Welsh band FEEDER are also joining Robbie on 14th July. Formed in 1994, the alt-rock inspired group has released 10 studio albums over their career – three of which have gone platinum. They’ve toured relentlessly around the world, supported The Rolling Stones, REM, Coldplay and U2. They have a bevy of over 20 Top 40 hits of alternative classics in their arsenal, including top five single ‘Buck Rogers’.
