On Saturday 24th March, VRT and RTBF will join hands together to organize a huge musical television show on the Esplanade of the Atomium. This way, Belgium's Flemish and French broadcasters want to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome. The three-hour show will feature thirty European top artists. Beside Belgian stars such as Arno, Axelle Red, Maurane and Helmut Lotti, many European artists will be flying over to Brussels: Demis Roussos, The Corrs, Simply Red, Zucchero, Kim Wilde, but also familiar Eurovision Song Contest faces such as Clouseau, Julio Iglesias and Lordi. All of them will provide a musical spectacle under the balls of the Atomium. Beside the concert, exhibitions and other initiatives will be held to commemorate the birth of what grew into the European Union. On 25th March 1957, two treaties were signed in Rome by Belgium, France, West Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, founding the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom).
