The concert has been organised by Gary and the BBC
Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney and Ed Sheeran are among the names confirmed to play at The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in June.
The event – which will take place in front of Buckingham Palace – will be a joint venture run by the BBC and singer Gary Barlow.
Barlow said he “can’t wait” for the event, explaining:
“The Diamond Jubilee concert will celebrate the 60 years of The Queen’s reign with 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.
“It’s going to be a fantastic event which transcends multiple decades of music. It’ll be a great, unique, experience for the thousands attending, watching on TV and listening on Radio.”
JLS, Jessie J, Sir Tom Jones, Alfie Boe, Jools Holland and Sir Cliff Richard have also been announced as part of the line-up, with more names to be revealed nearer the time.
Ten thousand free tickets will be available to members of the public and can be applied for online and by post between 7 February and 2 March.
Those chosen at random by the ballot will be invited to attend both the concert and a Jubilee Picnic in the Buckingham Palace Garden.
The concert will be broadcast live on BBC One, BBC One HD and on BBC Radio Two in the UK and to millions around the world. Viewers in the United States will be able to watch exclusive highlights on ABC the next day.
In June 2002, two concerts were held in the gardens of Buckingham Palace to celebrate The Queen’s Golden Jubilee.
