Much of England is bracing for a major bash this week as the ‘Queen’s Jubilee’ will take place, celebrating 60 years of rule for Queen Elizabeth.

 

The biggest part of the celebration will be the music concert that is set to take place today at Buckingham Palace. The talent lineup has been revealed, with Sir Paul McCartney and Elton John leading the way. John is expected to perform ‘Your Song,’ ‘I’m Still Standing,’ and ‘Crocodile Rock’ for the celebration. As for McCartney, ‘Live and Let Die’ was the only confirmed song prior to the event, but he’s expected to cover two other Beatles songs on top of that. The McCartney performance will close out the show.

The day will kick off with Madness performing on the Buckingham Palace roof, where they’ll play their biggest hit ‘Our House’ for the Queen. Other music vets of note performing at the event include Tom Jones, who serves up ‘Delilah’ and ‘Mama Told Me Not to Come,’ Cliff Richard, who will play a medley of his favorite tracks, Annie Lennox, who will show off her pipes on ‘There Must Be An Angel,’ and Stevie Wonder, who will perform three still-to-be-determined tracks.

U.K. favorites Robbie Williams, Gary Barlow, Cheryl Cole, Kylie Minogue, Grace Jones, and JLS will also take turns onstage, while Ed Sheeran and Jessi J represent the younger generation of hit makers at the show.
