Before Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid hit the pitch in Saturday’s UEFA Champions League final, the crowd at Wembley Stadium will enjoy a performance as part of the official Kickoff Show:

Four-time Grammy winner Lenny Kravitz will be the performer ahead of this year’s final shortly before the teams walk onto the pitch, allowing the stadium to assume its duties as a famed concert venue for a brief period before resuming its responsibilities as a historic soccer ground. Kravitz will perform in the kickoff show a year after singers Anitta and Bunna Boy did the same in Istanbul.

About the final Kickoff Show

The set list for Kravitz’s performance is unclear at this time, but the show comes a week after the singer-songwriter released his latest album, Blue Electric Light. UEFA and Pepsi, the kickoff show’s sponsor, promoted his performance with a video in which he paints Wembley Stadium blue in a nod to the tournament and sponsor’s main color.
