Lifelong Chelsea fan – and legendary lead singer of Madness – Suggs will take to the pitch during half-time of the Legends of Europe match for a not-to-be-missed performance.
Rolling back the years to the 90s, Suggs will perform the Chelsea anthem ‘Blue Day’, a song that was originally released in 1997 and coincided with our successful FA Cup winning campaign of that year.
Further musical entertainment will be provided by opera singer Stuart Pendred, who will perform a tribute to Gianluca Vialli prior to kick-off. The British tenor, who sang at Vialli’s wedding, will perform ‘Nessun Dorma’ – the aria which wrote itself into football folklore by becoming the theme song of the 1990 World Cup in Italy.
