Line Up For Buckingham Palace Concerts For Coronation Anniversary Confirmed

Those performing at three gigs for the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation have been confirmed.

The three shows, which have already sold out, will be staged before an audience of 6,000 guests each evening at Buckingham Palace. Katherine Jenkins, Russell Watson and The Feeling are among the ‘big names’ who will be performing at the event. Other performers of interest include Students from the Sylvia Young Theatre School and members of the National Youth Orchestra.

According to organisers, the shows will be broadcast on TV and radio.

Opera singer Watson said he felt “very lucky indeed” to be invited to participate.

“”I’m pretty sure when I was growing up in Salford as a lad that if anyone had said to me I’d be singing at three shows for Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace, I’d have thought they were mad.

A fanfare from the trumpeters of the Household Division will open the shows, while a series of scenes will celebrate the music of the Commonwealth and reflect the UK’s role in pop music since the 1960s.

The festival will be open to members of the public from 12 to 14 July. It will be preceded by an invitation-only preview on 11 July for members of the Royal Family, charity representatives and guests from the Armed Forces.
