Gary Barlow on 'massive' Jubilee concert

Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney and Brit-nominated Ed Sheeran will play at The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert 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.

Take That star Barlow said it is going to be an "amazing event" on a global scale.

He told the BBC's Nicholas Witchell: "I don't just want to represent the Commonwealth up there I want the whole world to be on that stage."

Alfie Boe, Jools Holland, Jessie J, Tom Jones, Lang Lang, Annie Lennox, Madness and Cliff Richard have also been announced as part of the line-up, with more names to be released nearer the time.
