An "all star line-up" of musicians, golfers and celebrities will appear at a concert to celebrate the start of the Ryder Cup on 29 September.

So far no acts have been announced for the Welcome To Wales event but organisers Live Nation told the Western Mail that the event will feature "international superstars including popular Welsh artists".

Assembly First Minister Carwyn Jones said, "This is an ideal way to kick-start proceedings and show the world what Wales has to offer".

Speculation will inevitably start about potential artists for the gig and we at BBC Wales Music will indulge by saying that Manic Street Preachers' Nicky Wire is famed for his love of golf. And their 2007 album was called Send Away The Tigers - surely no coincidence?

Who do you think should appear?
