Tinchy Stryder will break new ground once again this weekend by being the first rapper to ever open the biggest club match in the world, the Champions League Final
Tinchy Stryder may well be a million plus selling pop star whose new single Spaceship featuring Dappy just shot into the Radio 1 A-List but more important to the rapper is the fact that he’s a Manchester United fan so it’s not hard to believe that tomorrow’s Champions League Final was already going to be nerve-wracking enough without being the first rapper and contemporary artist to ever open the biggest club football match of the season.
Tinchy will perform a special self-penned version of the UEFA Champions League ceremony song for the clash between Barcelona and his beloved Manchester United at Wembley Stadium before kick-off. The event is expected to be watched by a massive 160Million people around the world as well as 90,000 in the stadium.
Of the opportunity to perform at Wembley, Hat-Trick Strydes offered “I love football and the Champions League final is one of the biggest footballing events“ says continuing, “I’ve always been a Manchester United fan so this match is even more special to me. I am honoured that UEFA asked me to perform at the opening ceremony, and I can’t wait to see the game.”
Tinchy Stryder releases his latest anthem Spaceship featuring Dappy June 12.
