Roof raiser for jubilee concert

The Queen’s jubilee concert is to echo celebrations of a decade ago with another performance from the roof of Buckingham Palace, organiser Gary Barlow has revealed.

Queen guitarist Brian May notably played above the venue in 2002 to mark the golden jubilee. Now Take That star Barlow says there will be a further rooftop appearance at the event he has been planning for 4 June, although he is keeping tight-lipped about the identity of the performer.

The show is due to feature stars such as Sir Paul McCartney, and Sir Tom Jones. Robbie Williams is also on the bill and he has been known for daredevil performances.

Barlow said: “It’s going to be an amazing night.”
