Andrea Bocelli will perform at Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace on Saturday 4 June 2022. The Platinum Party at the Palace concert, which is part of the celebrations to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, will be broadcast live on BBC One, BBC iPlayer and BBC Radio 2 in the UK as well as ABC News in the US.

Andrea Bocelli is part of a star-studded line-up of performers including Alicia Keys, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Craig David, Diana Ross, Duran Duran, Elbow, Sir Elton John, Hans Zimmer, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Nile Rodgers, Queen + Adam Lambert and Sir Rod Stewart. Stars from stage, screen and sport will also be featured at the event and on film including Sir David Attenborough, David Beckham, Stephen Fry, Dame Julie Andrews and The Royal Ballet, as well as casts and special guests from London West End musicals, plus the full 75-piece Orchestra of the Household Division.

“I consider it an enormous privilege”

Andrea Bocelli said, “I consider it an enormous privilege to be among the guests on stage at Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee concert and be able to offer my contribution to the soundtrack of such an extraordinary, historic event. With renewed emotion, after having had the honour of celebrating The Queen’s ninetieth birthday, I am about to sing again in front of Her Majesty and the Royal Family, in the hope of worthily expressing – through the universal language of music – my admiration for an equally universal character: one of the most remarkable figures of recent times, deeply connected to the history of our continent and beyond.”

Charlotte Moore, the BBC’s Chief Content Officer, noted, “We are thrilled to be bringing the nation together for this incredible, once-in-a-lifetime event, broadcast live across the BBC with an amazing star-studded line up of performers to celebrate The Queen’s momentous 70 years on the throne.”

The Platinum Party at the Palace concert will pivot around global themes that have been born, or evolved, during the breadth of Her Majesty’s reign due to extraordinary British and Commonwealth contributions including Fashion, Sport, The Environment, 70 Years of Pop Music and Musicals.

Twenty-two thousand people will attend the two-and-a-half hour concert, including 10,000 tickets allocated in a public ballot and over 7,500 tickets for key workers, members of the Armed Forces, volunteers, and charities.
