Event Information:

 

Please note that the above link will be showing all the major events of the Diamond Jubilee, street parties and the like, as well as the concert. The Diamond Jubilee Concert will be a concert held outside Buckingham Palace in London, organised as part of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee celebrations. The Diamond Jubilee Concert follows two concerts held at the palace for the Queen's Golden Jubille a decade earlier - the classical Prom at the Palace and the pop themed Party at the Palace.

The concert has been organised as a joint venture between the BBC and Take That singer Gary Barlow. 10,000 free tickets for the concert were made available. Members of the public could apply by post or online between 7 February and 2 March . After the application period closed, successful applicants were then drawn by random ballot. A total of 1.2 million applications were eventually received, 240 for every available place.

The concert takes place on bank holiday Monday 4 June as part of the extended weekend celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee, which will run from the 2nd to the 5th of June. The acts will perform on a specially constructed stage around the Queen Victoria Memorial, which stands in front of the palace. The stage is being designed by Mark Fisher.

Lineup includes:

Alfie Boe
Annie Lennon
Cliff Richard
Cheryl
Ed Sheeran
Sir Elton John
Jessie J
JLS
Jools Holland
Kylie Minogue
Lang Lang
Madness
Sir Paul McCartney
Robbie Williams
Dame Shirley Bassey
Stevie Wonder
Tom Jones

Performances will include one-off collaborations between artists. Gary Barlow and Andrew Lloyd Webber are to co-write a song for the Jubilee, which will be performed for the first time at the concert by a "unique artist". The song is to draw inspiration from the music and the people of the Commonwealth. Its creation is to be the subject of a 1 hour BBC documentary. The concert will be broadcast live on BBC One (including in high definition) and BBC Radio 2. American broadcaster ABC will be showing highlights the day after the concert. Broadcasting unions announced in April that they would ballot their members over taking strike action due to an ongoing pay dispute with the BBC, leading to media speculation that the BBC coverage of the concert could be affected.
