Pop acts confirmed for Motor Show
29 March 2006

British Motor Show organisers have released the first details of the pop acts lined up to play as part of the event's switch to London this summer.

The line-ups for the evening concerts include plenty of established names, though none could be described as current hitmakers. Norwegian act A-HA (above) will play the first night at 'Dock Rock', the 6500-capacity venue featuring both standing tickets and tiered seating.

The acts and dates confirmed so far are: 19 July A-HA, 20 July Van Morrison, 12 July UB40, 22 July Roxy Music, 24 July Simple Minds, 26 July Katherine Jenkins with the NSO, 27 July Jools Holland.

More acts are scheduled to be announced next month.
