Celebrating her 70 years on the throne with the Platinum Party At The Palace, Queen Elizabeth II enlisted some of the biggest stars from around the globe.

And Queen and Adam Lambert were there to kick things off with the help of the Royal Marching Band.

Belting out a montage of their classics, the legendary musicians wowed both their fans and the royal family with their epic performance.

Adam, who took the place of late lead singer Freddie Mercury, appeared on stage in front of a row of Palace officials playing 'We Will Rock You' for their opening number.

The 40-year-old singer showed off his sensational sense of style in a sweeping black jacket embellished with gold stitching, which he paired with black trousers and a shirt as he took to the stage.

During the opening number, Brian May made a grand entrance, appearing from behind a golden stage on a huge platform as he rocked the guitar solo while Roger Taylor put on an incredible show behind the drums.

After beginning with a rocking start, they then went on to sing 'Don't Stop Me Now,' getting the crowd of 22,000 people clapping and cheering, before going on to belt out 'We Are The Champions.'

The performance comes 20 years after guitar legend May performed 'God Save the Queen' from the rooftop of the same royal residence for the British monarch's Golden Jubilee in 2002.
