Sting and Neil Patrick Harris are among the all-star performers lined up for the Tony Awards.

They will be joined by Idina Menzel, Alan Cumming, Sutton Foster and the teaming up of Patti LaBelle, Gladys Knight and Fantasia at the awards on June 8.

Sting will perform a song from his Broadway-bound musical, The Last Ship.

Producers announced a music-heavy line-up 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.

Neil, 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.
