Christian pop-legend Sir Cliff Richard is one of a host of stars lined up to perform at Buckingham Palace, for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert.
The 71 year-old star, who was born in pre-independence India, is expected to perform some of his hits as the Royal family celebrate the remarkable milestone.
The concert, which will celebrate the monarch’s 60-year reign with music from a host of pop and classical artists, will be hosted by the BBC, who have brought together a stellar line-up for the unique event.
Alongside verteran poster Sir Cliff, dubbed the Peter Pan of pop for his enduring youthfulness, will be other 1960s stars, including Tom Jones, Paul McCartney and Elton John, as well as newer acts like JLS.
A massive 10,000 people will be able to attend the event and a Jubilee picnic in the Palace gardens, with most tickets being allotted by ballot. A number of nominated charities will also receive invitations to the concert.
