Robbie Williams will not appear at the QUEEN’s GOLDEN JUBILEE concert this June, despite being “honoured” at the invitation.

Robbie Williams was widely rumoured to be appearing at the event on the lawn of the Palace in London on June 3, which commemorates 50 years of the reign of Elizabeth II.

However, a spokesperson for the star told The Mirror newspaper today (February 1) that the former Take That singer will not make any appearances “for the next six months”.

The spokesperson said: “He was approached to take part in the concert and was honoured by the invitation. But he won’t be performing. He isn’t doing any promotional performances for the next six months.”

A UK spokesperson was unavailable to NME.COM at press time.

Other musicians tipped to appear at the 12,000 capacity concert include Paul McCartney and Aretha Franklin. Tickets are likely to be made available via a giant raffle draw prior to the event, which will be broadcast live by the BBC. The final line-up will be announced on February 12, according to a Palace spokesperson.
