The European Union becomes fifty years old on March 25 and what better way to celebrate it than a great TV birthday party. On Saturday 24 March, Flemish broadcaster VRT and RTBF, broadcaster of the French community in Belgium, will be organising a joint television music show in the Atomium boulevard, close to the world famous Brussels landmark.

The show will last three hours and it will feature thirty European artists. Lordi, the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest winners, will be there of course, as well as Clouseau ( Belgium 1991) and Spanish megastar Julio Inglesias who represented Spain in 1970 at the dawn of his career.

As our partner site belgovision.com reports, many other popular artists will be performing during the show : Demis Roussos, The Corrs, Simply Red, Zucchero, Kim Wilde as well as Belgian stars Arno, Axelle Red, Maurane and Helmut Lotti.
The show is part of the celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the signature of the Treaty of Rome, when the European Economic Community was born, later to become the European Union was actually founded.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
