Black Eyed Peas are set to perform at the opening ceremony of next month’s UEFA Champions League final which will be taking place Saturday June 3rd, 2017 in Cardiff which will make them become the second act to appear at a final.
Alicia Keys’ performance at last year’s final meant the derby between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid got delayed for four minutes.
Lead singer will.i.am told UEFA’s official website:
We’re planning on harnessing the excitement of the fans in the stadium, and all those tuning in to the UEFA Champions League final. As football fans ourselves, we know how much this game means to those watching from the stands, their homes and with friends. This performance means just as much to us. We’re planning an unforgettable show.” he said.
The Black Eyed Peas also performed at the 2010 FIFA World Cup Kick-off Celebration Concert in Soweto, South Africa.
