    Pierce Brosnan has agreed to host the Queen's Golden Jubilee pop gig.

    Brosnan personally rang Buckingham Palace to offer the organisers his services for the concert which is to be televised on June 3rd, in the United Kingdom.

    When Pierce comes on stage (within the Palace gardens), he will be responcible for introducing; Sir. Paul McCartney, Shirley Bassey, and Tom Jones, to the 12,000 fans who will be present. All three of these singers are to perform famous songs from the 007 films.

    A Palace inside revealed the following to SkyNews; "Pierce rang up the palace asking about tickets. When we suggested he take part he jumped at the chance."

    Pierce was also responcible for leading a two-minute silence after the death of the Queen Mother, while filming in Cadiz.
