Robbie Williams is the latest star to be confirmed to perform at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert in June. Find out who else will play!
Robbie Williams is the latest superstar to be confirmed for the concert. 'If this doesn't get me a knighthood, nothing will,' joked the Angels singer on his website. 'I can't wait for the show.' The Diamond Jubilee concert is curated by Robbie's Take That bandmate Gary Barlow. Which other stars will be performing at the gig?
Serial chart-toppers JLS were one of the earliest names to be confirmed for the concret. 'Very excited now that we've been announced as performing at Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee!' tweeted Marvin Humes in February. 'Such an honour… thank you @GBarlowofficial Marvin.'
It makes perfect sense that the UK's favourite Aussie singer should play the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert. 'To share the stage in front of Buckingham Palace with music legends including Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Tom Jones and Elton John in celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is very exciting,' said the pop queen in a statement.
Stevie certainly has no shortage of hits to choose from, so we can't wait to see him at the gig! 'It's an honour to celebrate The Queen,' beamed the Motown legend. 'It's an honour to celebrate Great Britain. The time is overdue that I meet Her Majesty.'
After Sir Elton John's heart wrenching performance of Candle In The Wind at Princess Diana's memorial service, it's no wonder the singer is performing at the concert. 'The Diamond Jubilee concert will celebrate the 60 years of the Queen's reign with an amazing line-up of world-class artists coming together to play at one of the biggest and most exciting live music shows in recent years,' said Gary Barlow.
Since winning the Critics' Choice gong at the BRIT Awards 2011, Jessie J has gone from strength to strength. Curator Gary Barlow wanted to show different generations of British talent, so the Price Tag singer is the perfect pick for new music.
Sir Paul McCartney was of course in The Beatles, arguably the biggest band of the Queen's 60 year reign. 'With Buckingham Palace as a backdrop, it's going to be a fantastic event which transcends multiple decades of music,' explained Gary Barlow. 'It'll be a great, unique, experience for the thousands attending, watching on TV and listening on radio. I can't wait.'

Ed Sheeran won two BRIT Awards (as many as Adele!) after the success of his album +. His performance at the Diamond Jubilee concert will crown a remarkable year for the young songwriter.
Eurythmics singer Annie Lennox rounds off the list of stars confirmed for what will surely be a great show. More than 1.2 million applications were made for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace in June - with only 10,000 tickets up for grabs!
When Gary Barlow met Prince Harry in Jamaica, he tried to get the royal to sing on a special Jubilee song! 'I've started the Diamond Jubilee song and we're hoping to get you on a track.' According to the Daily Mirror, Harry protested: 'I can't sing,' to which Gary insisted: 'Tambourine? Just one hit?' We'd love to hear that!
