Alfie Boe to perform where William and Kate kissed

Sunday June 3, 2012

It's been confirmed that Alfie Boe will take to the Buckingham Palace balcony to perform at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert.

Tenor Alfie will be duet with American soprano Renee Fleming at the concert organised by Gary Barlow.

The Take That singer spoke of his excitement about being able to use the balcony where Prince William and his bride Kate shared their first public kiss as man and wife.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "The balcony William and Catherine kissed on will be used during the concert. We're trying to use all the balconies.

"The performance on the special balcony is by a whole team. We've never had the front view of the Palace in any concert situation. It's never been the backdrop before."

The concert will also feature a performance by Madness on the palace roof.
