Dame Shirley Bassey has joined the star-studded line-up of performers at Welcome To Wales, the 2010 Ryder Cup celebration concert.

Also playing at the gig, the Cardiff-born diva's first Welsh appearance in over five years, will be home-grown stars Katherine Jenkins, Lostprophets, Only Men Aloud and Britain's Got Talent's Shaheen Jafargholi.

Dame Shirley said: "I'm honoured to be asked to perform at Welcome To Wales and proud to be part of such a fantastic celebration for The 2010 Ryder Cup - this is a huge opportunity for Wales and with Katherine Jenkins and Catherine Zeta Jones also taking part, we'll certainly be adding glitz and glamour to golf. I can't wait."

Catherine Zeta-Jones, whose husband Michael Douglas is battling cancer, will give a special opening address at the concert, which will be hosted by Steve Jones at the Millennium Stadium on September 29.

During the 90 minute televised show, the audience will see both the European and United States Teams officially introduced.
