British Song Contest singer Sam Ryder is one of the stars who will be performing at Buckingham Palace on June 4 for the 70th anniversary of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth. That BBC confirmed the arrival of the singer, who placed second for England during the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin.
The line-up includes international superstars such as Alicia Keys, Andrea Bocelli and Duran Duran. There were also appearances from Ella Eyre, Craig David, Celeste, Nile Rodgers, Sigala and Diversity. Elton John will also be performing, although his performance has been pre-recorded in connection with his European tour.
In addition to the many musical performances, celebrities from the world of sports and movies will also play a role. For example, Sir David Attenborough, David Beckham and Stephen Fry were part of the party.
The 2.5 hour concert can be followed live on the BBC. The show will be opened by Queen, with Adam Lambert. Guitarist Brian May was also there for Elizabeth’s 50th birthday. He then plays God save the queen on the roof of Buckingham Palace. Legendary American singer Diana Ross will close the concert.
The Jubilee Concert is part of a long weekend celebration in early June that celebrates Elizabeth’s Jubilee. On previous Queen’s commemorations in 2002 and 2012, major concerts with world stars were also held. Elton John, Paul McCartney and Ed Sheeran, among others, took the podium in 2012.
