Queen Elizabeth's 70th anniversary is currently dominating the royal headlines. More and more details about the planned concert on the occasion of their day of honor are coming to light. After Diana Ross has just been confirmed as an act, there are now new details about the anniversary party.
The British royal family spared no expense or effort to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's platinum jubilee. On June 4, Buckingham Palace is hosting a major concert in honor of the 96-year-old monarch, which will also be televised. Guests will feature some of the biggest music stars in Britain and around the world. The show will be opened by none other than the band Queen with singer Adam Lambert replacing Freddy Mercury, who died in 1991. The now 78-year-old music legend Diana Ross concludes. Also in attendance are Alicia Keys, Duran Duran, Hans Zimmer, Andrea Bocelli and many more.
"Twenty years after playing the Queen's glorious golden jubilee celebration, we are delighted to be invited back," Queen guitarist Brian May quoted People magazine as saying at the time the group performed on the roof of Buckingham palace up. "Her Majesty has always been and continues to be an incredible inspiration to so many around the world and I was absolutely delighted to have been invited to perform on such a momentous and historic occasion," Diana said Horse.
But not only musicians can be seen at the mega event. Naturalist Sir David Attenborough, ex-soccer player David Beckham, tennis star Emma Raducanu and many other celebrities have guest appearances. Theater professionals Andrew Lloyd Webber and Lin-Manuel Miranda will also be there for Queen Elizabeth II musical fans. A recorded special performance by Sir Elton John will also be broadcast.
A military parade on June 2 will kick off the four-day celebrations of the Queen's Jubilee. Elizabeth II inherited the British throne after the death of her father, George VI. boarded on February 6, 1952. She is the longest-serving monarch in the world.
