These stars perform at the Queen's Jubilee
When it comes to the selection of singers and bands, the main thing that stands out is that Queen is on the program. The band Queen, of the same name, opens the concert evening. The band played for the 50th throne anniversary, and this year they want to step it up a notch.
In addition to the original members, Adam Lambert will be there as a singer — he has been the new Queen frontman for several years. Fans will also get performances from Duran Duran, Rod Stewart, Alicia Keys, and Mabel. Sam Ryder, who recently took second place for Great Britain in the Eurovision Song Contest, will also perform.
Elton John will not appear live at the festivities, but a pre-recorded performance will be played. The highlight of the concert is the performance by the Queen of Soul, Diana Ross. The singer said she is "absolutely delighted to receive an invitation to perform on such a momentous and historic occasion," according to the BBC.
A number of other artists have also been confirmed for the programme, including composers and music giants Andrew Lloyd Webber, Hans Zimmer, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. In addition, fans can look forward to stars like David Beckham, Stephen Fry, and Julie Andrews. What is planned for them has not yet been announced.
The celebrations mainly take place at Buckingham Palace, where around 22,000 fans can follow the spectacle live. The tickets can be won in a competition or given to charities or employees in the public sector.
In Great Britain, viewers can watch the concert on the BBC. In the meantime, the Queen's Jubilee celebrations are already underway, and we're tracking all the best pictures here.
