After a year’s delay, the UEFA Euro 2020 Football Championship is finally set to kick off on Friday. Tomorrow’s opening ceremony takes place in Rome’ Olympic Stadium and now Andrea Bocelli has announced he shall be singing at the event. The Italian tenor, a lifelong football fan, will be the only musical artist to perform at the event.

Andrea Bocelli will appear alongside 24 national teams and step onto the field in Rome to give a performance of Puccini’s anthem Nessun Dorma.

The Euro 2020 opening ceremony will also include a flypast by the Frecce Tricolori, alongside an explosion of coloured pyrotechnic effects made from the stadium’s roof.

The 62-year-old has famously sung at previous major international sporting events from the Olympics and World Cup to the Premier League final in the UK.

He has also performed before Popes, presidents and royalty and in all the greatest concerts halls and opera houses around the world.
