BBC’s Platinum Jubilee concert line-up revealed as Brits make two key complaints

Platinum Party at the Palace takes place over Jubilee weekend

The Platinum Jubilee concert line-up has been announced and, despite some stellar names on the list, Brits appear to have a couple of grumbles.

Her Majesty the Queen celebrates 70 years on the throne with an extended – and sunny – bank holiday weekend next month.

Part of the celebrations will include the Platinum Party at the Palace concert, taking place on Saturday June 4 at Buckingham Palace.

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee concert line-up draws complaints

It’s unclear, however, if this little lot will be tuning in.

As the news was announced, disgruntled Brits took to social media with a couple of key moans.

One said: “First Tom Cruise, now Diana Ross, Alicia Keys, really? What are with the Americans? Is somebody getting a backhander for them to perform?

We have so many talented people in the UK and across the Commonwealth, I’m actually sickened by this.

“This is meant to be a celebration of Her Majesty. We have so many talented people in the UK and across the Commonwealth, I’m actually sickened by this.”

Another agreed: “I really don’t understand what Americans are doing at that concert. It’s neither their country nor monarchy and out of all the artists across the UK and Commonwealth, it’s absurd!”

One British singing superstar was also missing from the list – something many fans picked up on.

“No Tom Jones,” said one, adding the crying emoji.

No Sir Tom Jones? He’s always at these events,” said another.

“Where is Sir Tom he performed as the last jubilee concert?” asked another.
