"We’re aiming to give artists a platform and place where they can perform and have fun. It’s simply a musical treat for everyone who loves watching the best musicians performing great songs from any genre and any decade."

Owen Courtney, Commissioning Executive at BBC Music TV, added: "I’m delighted that Gary Barlow has brought such a wonderful collection of talented artists together for this BBC One show and that the BBC can continue to bring musical performances such as this to audiences, at a time when live shows are on hold.

"I know it will be a very special evening."

Executive Producer Lee Connolly commented: "Artists and musicians love to perform, and I’m With The Band creates a platform for them to do just that.

"Gary continues to show, with his Crooner Sessions, how much fun it is to collaborate with fellow musicians and I’m With The Band takes this concept further by creating a bespoke environment where artists can relax and do what they do best."
