As part of Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, a star-studded concert is set to be held outside of Buckingham Palace on Saturday 4th June. It is reported that the concert will be headlined by the ‘Queen of Motown’ Diana Ross.
The Times reports that Diana Ross is set to close the Platinum Party at the Palace and if she does, it will be her first UK performance since 2007 when she took to the stage during her European tour.
The concert will take place on a huge circular platform on the Victoria Memorial.
Though the BBC have not confirmed the official line up, there are reports that Diana Ross will join the likes of Duran Duran, Queen and Andrea Bocelli.
A similar concert was held in 2012 for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Performers at this event included Sir Cliff Richard, Ed Sheeran, Annie Lennox, Sir Paul McCartney, Elton John and Kylie Minogue.
The 2012 concert was broadcast live on BBC One, BBC One HD and BBC Radio 2 and was watched by an average of 15.32 million viewers peaking at 17 million viewers.
At the closing of the 2012 concert, Her Majesty The Queen was accompanied on stage by The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. The Queen lit the last national beacon before a medley of patriotic songs and hymns were played.
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations begin on Thursday 2nd June and conclude on Sunday 5th June.
