2018 saw the iconic Quincy Jones turn 85, and to celebrate his birthday we bring you a very special concert recorded at The O2 on Wednesday 27th of June 2018. Not only will there be onstage conversation with the legendary producer, but this one-off show will feature a full symphony orchestra performing stunning arrangements of Jones' best loved hits, conducted by Jules Buckley, and performed by artists such as Paul Weller, Mick Hucknall, Andreas Varady, Beverley Knight and many more.

In addition to celebrating Quincy Jones' birthday, the concert also pays tribute to songwriter, producer and musician Rod Temperton who passed away in 2016. Together, Jones and Temperton were not only friends but made one of the most successful musical duos in history.

Presented by Trevor Nelson.
