The BBC is putting on a phenomenal evening of entertainment to celebrate the Queen's 70-year reign, with a stellar line-up of celebrities set to perform or make an appearance on the night.


Taking place on Saturday 4th June at Buckingham Palace, the event will be streamed live on BBC One, BBC iPlayer and BBC Radio 2.

And with opening performances from Queen + Adam Lambert, and none other than Diana Ross closing the show – in what will be her first live UK performance in 15 years – viewers are in for quite a treat!

Queen guitarist Brian May said: “Twenty years after playing The Queen’s glorious Golden Jubilee we’re very happy to be invited again. Then there was a moment when I wondered... after Buckingham Palace roof where can you go? Well... you will see!”

Diana Ross added: “I have had the honour of meeting the Queen many times throughout my life, including when I was with my family. Her Majesty has and continues to be such an incredible inspiration to so many across the world and I was absolutely delighted to receive an invitation to perform on such a momentous and historic occasion.”

As well as this, the UK's very own Sam Ryder will be performing fresh from his Eurovision success in Italy.
