Jay-Z, Kylie Minogue and Annie Lennox are among the big names set to perform at a concert to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee this summer.

The event, which is being organised by Take That's Gary Barlow, will also include performances from Jessie J, Paul McCartney, Tom Jones,  Ed Sheeran  JLS and Shirley Bassey.

The free street party event will see a host of the world's top singers take to a stage on the famous Victoria Memorial outside Buckingham Palace.

Speaking about the event Gary Barlow said: "The Diamond Jubilee concert will celebrate 60 years of the Queen's reign with an amazing line-up of world-class artists.

"With Buckingham Palace as a backdrop it's going to be a fantastic event which transcends multiple decades of music. It'll be a great, unique experience for the thousands attending and watching on TV."

The event is set to take place this summer and will be broadcast live on the BBC as part of four days of celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee.
