The Queen’s Platinum
Jubilee celebrations are upon us and one of the main events of the bank
holiday weekend is the epic Platinum Party at the Palace concert on
Saturday 4 June.

The BBC and Buckingham Palace
have unveiled the stellar line-up of musicians, performers and celebrities who
will be taking part in the show that will be broadcast on BBC One, BBC iPlayer
and BBC Radio 2 live from Buckingham Palace.

Among the international
superstars who will share the three-stage set up are Queen + Adam Lambert – who
will open the concert – Alicia Keys, Ella Eyre, Craig David, George Ezra, Duran
Duran, Andrea Bocelli, Celeste, Nile Rodgers, Sigala, and Diversity, plus a
special pre-recorded performance from Elton John.

The artists will all perform
their biggest hits in a star-studded tribute to Her Majesty’s milestone
anniversary.

Brian May, who famously
appeared on the palace roof at the Golden Jubilee Concert in 2002, said:
“Twenty years after playing The Queen’s glorious Golden Jubilee we’re very
happy to be invited again. Then there was a moment when I wondered… after
Buckingham Palace roof where can you go? Well… you will see!!!”

The I’m Coming Out singer said: “I have had the honour of
meeting the Queen many times throughout my life, including when I was with my
family. Her Majesty has and continues to be such an incredible inspiration to
so many across the world and I was absolutely delighted to receive an
invitation to perform on such a momentous and historic occasion.”

The design of the stage will
see three separate stages linked by walkways and 70 illuminated columns
representing the Queen’s 70-year reign – creating a 360-degree experience in
front of Buckingham Palace and The Queen Victoria Memorial. For the first time,
two of the three stages will sit immediately in front of Buckingham Palace,
framing Her Majesty’s iconic home.
