Normal People star Paul Mescal has said he is "beyond excited and grateful" to be teaming up with Dermot Kennedy for a special musical performance.

On July 30, Kennedy is set to play an exclusive live gig with his full band at the Natural History Museum in London, with special guests, including Mescal.

The show, named Some Summer Night, will air globally at the end of the month, and will be a pay-per-view event.

Taking to Twitter, the Outnumbered hitmaker shared the exciting news, writing: "I'm making this video to announce something that is incredibly exciting.

"On the 30 July, we’re going to be playing a live streamed show from the Natural History Museum in London. I can’t properly express how excited that makes me.

"I think it’s one of the most exciting things I’ve ever been a part of."

"We’re going to be joined by Paul Mescal from Normal People which is incredible. I’m so grateful to him for getting involved and being up for it," he posted.

24-year-old Mescal, who recently showcased his vocal talents during a sketch on RTÉ Does Comic Relief, also took to social media to confirm the news and thanked the 28-year-old chart-topper for including him in the "amazing evening".

He wrote: "So beyond excited and grateful that Dermot Kennedy has asked me to be involved in what is going to be an amazing evening… tickets will be available very soon x."
