The concert is taking place to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the release of Dr No.
It will feature appearances from Shirley Bassey, Garbage, Lulu and Chrissie Hynde who have all sung Bond theme songs.
Guest vocalists lined up for the concert include Becky Hill, Celeste, Ella Eyre, Jamie Cullum, John Grant and Paloma Faith.
Alongside the concert, a new feature documentary The Sound of 007 will also premiere exclusively on Prime Video from 5 October.
The Sound of 007 is directed by Mat Whitecross who is best known for his films about music including Oasis documentary Supersonic and comedy Spike Island about the Stone Roses gig in Widnes.
The documentary promises to pull back the curtain on the remarkable history of six decades of James Bond music, taking viewers on a journey from Sean Connery’s Dr. No through to Daniel Craig’s final outing in No Time To Die.
To celebrate 60 years of Bond, all 25 films have been shown in cinemas across 2022.
Bond producers Barbara Broccolli and Michael G Wilson recently said they were looking for an actor to replace Craig who could commit to the series for a decade.
They said to Variety: “The thing is, it’s going to be a couple of years off. And when we cast Bond, it’s a 10-, 12-year commitment. So he’s probably thinking, ‘Do I really want that thing? Not everybody wants to do that. It was hard enough getting [Daniel Craig to do it]. And he was in his early 30s at the time!”
