Beatles legend, Sir Paul McCartney will headline a concert celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee on June 4.
Performers confirmed for the commemorative event span the sixty years of the monarch’s reign. Music icons such as Sir Elton John, Sir Cliff Richard and Sir Tom Jones will appear alongside more recent stars; the likes of British boy band JLS, Jessie J and Ed Sheeran.
Take That star Gary Barlow, who is an organiser of the celebratory concert, said in a statement: “It’s going to be an amazing line up of world-class artists coming together to play at one of the biggest and most exciting live music shows in recent years.
“With Buckingham Palace as a backdrop, it’s going to be a fantastic event which transcends multiple decades of music.”
Currently the line up is only partly confirmed and it is expected that American artists will join with the royal celebrations.
The concert, which commemorates sixty years on the throne for Queen Elizabeth II, will be held in front of Buckingham Palace. Screens will showcase the event in the royal parks: St James’ Park and Green Park. The concert will also be broadcast on BBC1 and BBC Radio 2. American viewers can catch the concert on ABC the following day.
