Imelda May, Mica Paris and Lisa Stansfield are the latest in a star studded line-up for Prudential BluesFest at The O2 .

The trio will bring girl power and smooth sounds to the launch event of the three-day event titled The ABC of Blues And Soul.

They will take to the Indigo At The O2 stage on Friday, November 6, alongside a full orchestra, offering their own take on classics from music icons including Dusty Springfield and Aretha Franklin.

Meanwhile fans of veteran crooners Van Morrison and Sir Tom Jones are in luck.

Event organisers have released specially-priced tickets that mean fans can enjoy both artists’ back catalogues – performed with their own bands – for £45.

This is the fifth time the festival, which is the UK’s biggest celebration of blues, roots, soul and R’n’B, has taken place.

This year will see sounds split between ticketed evening shows – with other headliners including the Dave Matthews Band – and a host of free gigs scattered around the North Greenwich venue.
