Queen on the Line-up for the Platinum Party at the Palace
Queen have been given the honour of opening the Platinum Party at the Palace which celebrates the Queen’s 70th year as Monarch.
Queen will open the Platinum Party at the Palace and Diana Ross will close the proceedings. It is going to be an amazing evening of entertainment and I’m just sorry that I’m not in London on this date as it should be a great concert. Other stars involved in the Queen’s 70th year celebration include Alicia Keys, Duran Duran, Sam Ryder, Sir Rod Stewart, Hans Zimmer, Celeste, Sir Elton John, Ella Eyre, Craig David, Mabel, Elbow, Andrea Bocelli, Mimi Webb, Sam Ryder, Jax Jones, Celeste, Nile Rodgers, Sigala and more.
The BBC and Buckingham Palace unveiled this amazing group of performers from the world’s of music and dance for the Platinum Party at the Palace concert, which takes place on Saturday June 4th at Buckingham Palace. This concert will be performed live on BBC One, BBC iPlayer and BBC Radio 2 – all acts performing their biggest hits in a star-studded tribute to Her Majesty’s unprecedented anniversary.
Other Stars from the stage, sport and screen will be appearing at the event and on film will include Sir David Attenborough, Emma Raducanu, David Beckham, Stephen Fry, Dame Julie Andrews, The Royal Ballet, Ellie Simmonds, and a specially recorded performance from Sir Elton John. Sam Ryder, the United Kingdom’s Eurovision hero, will also perform live, fresh from his success in Italy.
The evening will also have special guest appearance by Lloyd Webber and Lin-Manuel Miranda plus performances featuring casts and special guests from The Phantom of the Opera, Hamilton, Six, The Lion King and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
Queen + Adam Lambert will open the concert with a very special one-off spectacular production, which will no doubt summon memories of Brian May’s historic appearance on the Palace roof at the Golden Jubilee Concert back in 2002.
The show is going to be 2hours 30 mins in length, so I’m not sure how long Queen will actually get based on the number of performers on the bill – however there are 3 stages so this probably explains it. The legend that is Diana Ross will clse the show, with her first UK live performance in fifteen years.
The concert will be hosted by Roman Kemp and Kirsty Young and the concert is expected to have 22,000 people inattendance with 10,000 tickets allocated in a public ballot and over 7,500 tickets for key workers, members of the Armed Forces, volunteers, and charities.
Speaking for Queen + Adam Lambert, Brian May 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!!!”
Further details and additional artists will be confirmed closer to the event – with some surprises left for the evening itself.
