NEW YORK: Neil Patrick Harris, Sting, Idina Menzel, Alan Cumming and Sutton Foster - as well as the teaming up of Patti LaBelle, Gladys Knight and Fantasia - will perform at the Tony Awards on June 8.
Producers announced a music-heavy lineup that includes all the best new musical nominees - "Aladdin," ''After Midnight," ''Beautiful: The Carole King Musical," ''A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder" - and some overlooked ones, including "Bullets Over Broadway," ''Rocky" and "If/Then." Three returning shows, "Les Miserables," ''Violet" and Cumming's "Cabaret," will also be featured.
Sting will perform a song from his Broadway-bound musical, "The Last Ship."
Harris, in the past a winning host, will return to sing a song from his "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," in which he plays a German male transsexual rock singer.
