Buckingham Palace says ‘Let’s rock!’

Buckingham Palace has announced a special one-off concert to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this summer.

The concert will be held by the Queen Victoria Memorial in front of the Royal residence on Monday 4 June.

The event has been organised by the BBC and Gary Barlow, who have brought together some of the country’s biggest names, both past and present, for what will be – very much – a family affair.

10,000 free tickets will be made available to the public via an online ballot, which is open until 2 March. Click here to apply. Those who don’t get their name pulled out of the hat will still be able to watch the event live on the Beeb.

Those selected to attend will not only get the rare chance to see a selection of some of the greatest names in music in one place, but will also be invited to hobnob with royalty by attending a Jubilee Picnic in Buckingham Palace’s garden.

Amongst those already signed up to perform on the night are old favourites such as Shirley Bassey, Annie Lennox, Tom Jones, Madness, and Paul McCartney.

Whilst those names won’t mean a lot to those kids dragged along by their parents, the likes of Jessie J, JLS and Ed Sheeran should keep them happy. Other names are expected to be announced in due course.
