  Giant free gig for Olympic flame
Updated 02 June 2004, 19.45
McFly are playing a free gig in London
Music fans will get a treat at the end of June when loads of top stars perform at a free concert in London.

McFly, Jamelia and Will Young are some of the pop acts on the bill, with older stars like Ozzy Osbourne and Rod Stewart also singing for free.

Around 70,000 people are expected for the concert on 26 June, and they'll have to apply for free tickets.

The concert is to celebrate the arrival of the Olympic flame in the UK on its way to Athens for the Games in August.

The six-hour concert will take place on the on The Mall, the wide, ceremonial road that links Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace.

The flame hasn't been to Britain since the Olympics were last held here, back in 1948.

During its trip through the capital, the torch will be carried by mix of celebrities and ordinary people before it is handed to five-times Olympic rowing champion, Sir Steve Redgrave, who will run the final leg into the Mall.
