Speaking about the concert, Beyoncé, who is also the Chime For Change co-founder and concert director, says: "Our goal is to call for change for girls and women in the loudest voice possible. I am excited for us to come together on June 1st to bring the issues of education, health and justice for girls and women to the world stage."

As well as the music on offer, the concert will be screening inspirational short films highlighting women's global issues.

"This is the emergency and the opportunity of today," said Gucci creative director and Chime For Change co-founder Frida Giannini. "We have reached a significant moment in the history of girls' and women's empowerment and now is the time for change. On June 1 at Twickenham Stadium, I hope that The Sound Of Change Live will help the voices calling for change to become so loud that they cannot be ignored."
