The Black Eyed Peas are set to perform at the opening ceremony for the Champions League final on June 3.
A performance by Alicia Keys last year meant the Real Madrid-Atletico Madrid final started four minutes late at the San Siro in Milan.
The Black Eyed Peas will become the second act to appear at a final, before Juventus meet Real Madrid at the National Stadium of Wales in Cardiff.
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.”
The Black Eyed Peas also performed at the 2010 FIFA World Cup Kick-off Celebration Concert in Soweto, South Africa.
