Queen Elizabeth II and all of England are celebrating the monarch’s 60-year reign this week in London and the call for Monday, June 4 is a gala concert at Buckingham Palace. Over a million people entered the lottery to attend and 10,000 lucky people won the chance to see Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney, Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Cliff Richard, Sir Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, Stevie Wonder and Annie Lennox perform for the Queen.
“It may not be that
pop or rock is her favorite music, but she has certainly supported us
over the years and in return of course we have supported her,” Sir Cliff tells the AP. “I think she’d probably rather go and see an opera.”
At the concert, Sir Elton is set to perform “Your Song,” ”I’m Still Standing” and “Crocodile Rock.” Sir Tom will do his hit “Delilah” and Lennox is set to sing “There Must Be An Angel.”
Kylie and Stevie are set to do a medley of their greatest hits, while Sir Paul will play his James Bond theme “Live and Let Die.”
Should be fun, even if it’s not quite Queen Elizabeth’s cup of tea. We imagine the lucky Brits who are in attendance will have a blast.
