The guitarist performed the solo high above the city and was accompanied by an orchestra far below him.
The event was projected live to millions of people across the world. Twenty years after the special concert, the Queen will again bring various musicians together to celebrate 70 years on the throne in June. The Platinum Part at the Palace will be broadcast live on BBC on June 4. The event will feature performances from Alicia Keys, Duran Duran, Rod Stewart, Hans Zimmer, Elton John, and many others.
