As we reported last summer, Sir Paul has been invited to entertain Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in celebration of her Golden Jubilee. On the evening of Monday, June 3, Sir Paul will perform for the Queen on the lawn of London's Buckingham Palace Gardens. Also appearing in the all-star pop concert will be Mick Jagger, Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Wonder. Sir Paul's friend, George Martin, has been appointed to be the musical director for the entire Jubilee. The concert will be followed by beacon-lighting by the Queen and a firework display.
The Palace has announced that to ensure that everyone wishing to attend the concerts has a chance of doing so, invitations will be issued by ballot. Details of the ballot arrangements and how to apply will be announced soon. The BBC will also be broadcasting the event
