The two-hour concert will be open to residents of Monaco and free of charge.
A civil ceremony will take place the following day in the Throne Room of the palace.
Afterwards, a cocktail buffet will take place at the Palace Square, where the Mayor of Monaco will present a gift to the couple, followed by an evening reception at the Port Hercules and a "unique sound and light show."
On July 2, Albert and Wittstock, a South African Olympic Swimmer, will tie the knot for the second time during a religious ceremony at the palace's main courtyard, followed by a procession, an evening reception catered by Chef Alain Ducasse, and a gala ball.
