Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and Sir Paul McCartney are among the artists who will play at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert in London in June.

The event, which is a joint venture between the BBC and Gary Barlow, will take place near the Queen Victoria Memorial, in front of Buckingham Palace.

A national ballot, which can be applied for online, will distribute free tickets to 10,000 people.
