You also have to provide the name, date of birth and address of your guest plus any accessibility requirements.
The ballot will close at 23:59 on 23rd of March 2022.
For the concert, a special stage is set to be erected in front of Buckingham Palace, similar to her 2002 Golden Jubilee celebrations which saw musicians come together to perform - with Queen guitarist Brian May even performing from the roof of Buckingham Palace itself.
And this time round the entertainment promises to be even more special with global pop and rock stars, opera singers and a full live orchestra.
That’s not all, famous faces from TV, film and the stage will celebrate some of the Queen’s most significant cultural moments during her 70 year reign.
Some tickets are even being given away to charities. And the tickets won't be available to purchase.
Who is on the line up for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee concert?
George Ezra has been confirmed as the first musician on the line up for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee concert.
He will be joined by "pop stars to rock royalty to opera singers" the names of whom are yet to be released.
But if the line up is as impressive as in previous years, it will be an unmissable event - Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue and Sir Elton John performed at a Diamond Jubilee concert in 2012.
George is currently suffering from chickenpox and has been forced to postpone some of his upcoming gigs.
He tweeted, "Hello 👋 As you can see, I’m pretty under the weather right now with chicken pox so I’m sorry to say that I’m going to need to move my upcoming shows.
The rescheduled dates will be: April 12 - London Palladium April 13 - Manchester Opera house April 14 - Edinburgh Usher Hall"
Let's hope he's feeling better soon! Get well George!
