Last month, Apple updated its 2014 iTunes Festival London lineup, while announcing that Canadian deadmau5 will open the concert series. Now, Apple has revealed (via The Loop) that Plácido Domingo will be the closing act for the festival in London, a choice that reflects the true diversity of iTunes Festival with headliners ranging from Rock, Electronic, and Opera/Classical.

“For many reasons, I am thrilled to be the final performer at this year’s iTunes Festival seen all over the world: thrilled to be following Katy Perry who was last year’s closing performer; thrilled to be able to perform with other excellent singers; and, above all, thrilled for the recognition that this brings to the unique and magnificent world of opera and of classical music,” said Plácido Domingo.

Domingo, who is one of the world’s all-time greatest tenors, is one of The Three Tenors with José Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti that took the world by storm in 1990, performing at the FIFA World Cup Final.
