BBC Concert at Buckingham PalaceSir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Cliff Richards and Sir Tom Jones are joined by Shirley Bassey, Madness, Annie Lennox, JLS and Jessie J as well as a host of other A-list stars for a very special concert Diamond Jubilee Concert outside Buckingham Palace on Monday 4th June 2012. Gary Barlow, one of the organisers, has put together a fitting line-up of rock royalty - including Alfie Boe, Jools Holland, Lang Lang and Ed Sheeran - to mark the Queen's 60th year on the throne and ten thousand lucky people will get free tickets to see the concert live. The five thousand who successfully get a ticket through the ballot will be able to invite a friend, bringing the total to double that (they will notified by the end of March and tickets will be sent out at the end of May). There's also the potential for another 500,000 people to join in the fun in St James's Park and Green Park and The Mall where you can watch the show on giant screens. The concert will also be televised live on BBC1 and Radio 2 for everyone to enjoy at home. The concert is one of a number of large scale events planned for the weekend of Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd June which is part of a four-day Diamond Jubilee break with two bank holidays on Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th June. Check the BBC website for information on the concert and how to apply for tickets (closes 23.59 GMT Friday 2 March 2012), and The British Monarchy for details of all the Diamond Jubilee celebrations taking place on the extended June weekend.

About Buckingham Palace

England's most famous royal palace, and the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II, Buckingham Palace opens the doors of its State Rooms to the public every summer. Originally acquired by King George III for his wife Queen Charlotte, Buckingham House was increasingly known as the 'Queen's House' and 14 of George III's children were born there.
