Elton to Attend Vienna Life Ball
Black-Eyed-Peas singer Fergie will also be attending the "1,001 Nights" themed grand opening of the event alongside Italian star designer Roberto Cavalli, who will be opening the fashion show for the second time.
This year, the fashion show will have a slightly retro taste. Roberto Cavalli’s wife Eva said: "We’re not just bringing our current Spring-Summer collection, but we’ve also dug out other pieces from the archive."
The actors Ruth Brauer-Kvam and Cornelius Obony will be replacing Ben Becker und Nicholas Ofczarek in commenting the event, which will see the first prominent guests arrive at the red carpet in the square in front of the city hall at around 7.30pm. The doors open for most guests at 3pm on the day.
Elton John and Bill Clinton will also be attending the Aids Charity Gala in the Hofburg just hours before the ball.
A charity concert at the Burgtheater will take place the previous evening, on May, 24.
Proceeds from tickets for all these events will be donated to national and international Aids charities.
