Chart-topping Canadian singer Michael Bublé will play a huge outdoor concert in Hatfield next year.
The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter will play an open-air show at Hatfield House in the summer.
Currently in the middle of a major UK arena tour, the Haven't Met You Yet star will be performing in Hatfield on Sunday, July 26, 2020.
The global superstar will be bringing his An Evening with Michael Bublé tour to stately homes, castles and cricket grounds across the UK for a series of summer gigs.
As well as Hatfield House on July 26, he will be appearing at places such as Bath Royal Crescent, the Blickling Estate in Norfolk, Warwick Castle, Cardiff Castle in Wales, Exeter's Powderham Castle, and Emirates Riverside cricket ground in Durham.
This is the first time that Michael, 44, has taken his show to these stunning, historic venues.
Tickets for all dates go on sale at 9am this Friday, December 6.
One of the best entertainers in the world, the "irresistibly big-hearted" performer oozes charisma, velvety vocals and smooth moves.
He has already completed six sold-out world tours, and sold over 60 million records over the course of his extraordinary career.
Michael Bublé's latest album, Love, has been nominated for a 2020 Grammy Award in the category of 'Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album'.
The Canadian crooner has previously won four Grammy Awards, and topped the UK album charts four times, with Crazy Love, Christmas, To Be Loved, and with most recent release Love.
Love includes classic tracks such as When I Fall in Love, Unforgettable and Help Me Make It Through the Night.
Hatfield House is best known as Queen Elizabeth I's childhood home.
More recently it has become a popular destination for filmmakers.
The Oscar-winning movie The Favourite starring Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone was almost exclusively shot on location at the Hertfordshire estate.
The country park has also hosted a series of concerts, with Sir Elton John playing Hatfield House in 2011.
That gig by the legendary Rocket Man singer was part of the Jacobean mansion's 400th anniversary celebrations.
