Huge crowds descend on the palace party mall
DrRoss: The Supremes’ lead singer and all-around queen of Motown will make headlines – her first performance in the UK in 15 years. Expect disco hits like I’m coming home from.
Queen + Adam Lambert: Brian May and Company. The event will open – and they have a lot to live up to. May’s translation of God Saved the Queen from the roof of Buckingham Palace in 2002 for the Golden Jubilee made countless headlines.
attached: Manchester independent rockers will bring a much-needed dose of guitar music to the proceedings, with crowd-pleasing anthems like One Day Like This surely on the palace grounds.
Hans Zimmer: With two Oscars and four Grammy Awards under his belt, German composer Hans Zimmer will provide the party with a host of movie magic. He has scored goals for Dune, Gladiator, Pirates of the Caribbean and The Lion King.
George Ezra: George Ezra is among the youngest performers at the party, although if his previous performances are anything to go by – including a rocky night they sold out entirely at London Palladium Back in April – he would have no problem keeping on his own.
Andrea Bocelli: He’s sold 80 million records and performed before presidents and popes – but Andrea Bocelli is still nervous. Read our recent interview with the Italian tenor magazine over here.
Sam Ryder: After securing Britain’s second place in this year’s Eurovision with SPACE MAN, it was only right that Sam Ryder appeared on the bill.
Kirsty Young and Roman Kemp will host the event, which will also include guests including David Attenborough, Emma Radocano, David Beckham, Stephen Fry and Julie Andrews.
