Robbie To Play At Jubilee Concert

Robbie Williams is the latest act to be added to the line-up for The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert. The event, which is to be held at Buckingham Palace on June 4, will be attended by 10,000 people and broadcast live on BBC One and BBC Radio 2.

The bill has been assembled by Williams' fellow Take That bandmate Gary Barlow with other performers including Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney and Dame Shirley Bassey. Williams said on his website:

"If this doesn't get me a knighthood, nothing will, I can't wait for the show."

Stevie Wonder, Ed Sheeran, Jessie J and JLS will also appear at the event along with The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and other members of the Royal Family. More than 1.2 million applications were made for the free tickets, according to figures released earlier this month and winners were chosen at random by ballot.
