Simon Le Bon - Duran Duran Angry About Jubilee Snub

Simon Le Bon is angry about being snubbed for the Diamond Jubilee concert.

The Duran Duran frontman was ''underwhelmed'' by the concert line up to celebrate 60 years of Queen Elizabeth on the throne and upset his band were not considered to perform.

Voicing his frustration on twitter during the live performances on Monday (04.06.12), he wrote: ''Well, Julian Lloyd-Weber and Gary Barlow, I have to say, I am in the least - underwhelmed (sic).

''Well, at least we have Sir Paul McCartney's 'willy dance' to look forward to. He is on it, right(sic)?''

British music legends, including Sir Elton John, Annie Lennox and Sir Paul McCartney performed in front of Buckingham Palace in London to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's 60 years on the throne.

The 'Ordinary World' singer blames Take That frontman Gary Barlow - who unveiled his Jubilee single 'Sing', co-written with Andrew Lloyd Webber, at the event - for the snub.

Simon, 53, added: ''I absolutely wish that DD'd (Duran Duran had) been part of the Jubilee concert. But it was a Gary B booking, and he didn't want us (sic).''
