The Later 25 show will broadcast on Saturday September 23rd on BBC Two.

Mark Cooper, Head of Music Television, Entertainment, Music and Events, BBC Studios says: [quote style=’1′ cite=”]”Every edition of Later…With Jools Holland is an event, artist following artist, Jools and camera crew moving from stage to stage, the whole bigger than the sum of its parts. So to bring that experience to the grand intimacy and magical bowl that is the Albert Hall should be a mega-event. We’ll have done around 360 shows by the time we get to the Albert Hall so it’s only appropriate to film a great mix of artists there in 360 degrees.”[/quote]
