The two gigs in June have some of the biggest names in pop performing including Will Young, Atomic Kitten and S Club 7.

The concerts are part of the celebrations to mark 50 years since Queen Elizabeth II has been on the throne.

1,897,051 applications made

When the telephone lines closed at midnight on Sunday, a total of 1,897, 051 applications had been made.

There are only 12,000 tickets available for each concert and the names will be selected at random.

A share of the tickets has been allocated to every county around the UK.

Concerts on BBC television

Those who are not lucky enough to be selected to go to the concerts won't miss out as the BBC will be showing both of them.

When the singing is over, the Queen will light a special beacon and after that there will be a huge firework display.
