Dame Shirley Bassey has been announced as the headline act for the Welcome To Wales Ryder Cup concert at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

The concert, to be held on 29 September, will be the first time the Welsh diva will have performed in her native country for five years. She will be joined as previously announced by Lostprophets, Shaheen Jafargholi, Only Men Aloud and Katherine Jenkins.

Dame Shirley said: "I'm honoured to be asked to perform at Welcome to Wales and proud to be part of such a fantastic celebration for The 2010 Ryder Cup.

"This is a huge opportunity for Wales and with Katherine Jenkins and Catherine Zeta Jones also taking part, we'll certainly be adding the glitz and glamour to golf. I can't wait."
