To whom it may concern, UEFA have announced that none other than Dua Lipa will be responsible for kicking off the 2018 Champions League final by performing at the opening ceremony.

As such, the 22-year-old pop star will follow in the footsteps of some true giants of the corporate-friendly, take-the-money-and-piss-off football gig circuit luminaries such as David Guetta, the Black Eyed Peas, Pitbull, etc, etc.

Euro 2012: Opening ceremonies, why do they insist on doing this to us?

Everton USA at related • 0 views

This article titled "Euro 2012: Opening ceremonies, why do they insist on doing this to us?" was written by Scott Murray, for The Guardian on Friday 8th June 2012 19.30 UTC

It has never been satisfactorily established why major international football tournaments require opening ceremonies. There's a logic behind the organisers of the Olympic Games pre-empting their event with the sort of lavish song-and-dance productions that would put the combined efforts of Rodgers, Hammerstein, Lerner, Loewe, Bernstein, Berlin and the carpenter who used to build the sweeping staircases for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to shame: that flame won't light itself.

The good news, for a nation slumped in front of the television and suffering from advanced celebration fatigue, is that Friday's opening ceremony of the Euro 2012 football tournament, staged in Poland's new £100m National Stadium on the banks of the Vistula, is scheduled to last a mere 12 minutes: a quick ripple of local boy Frédéric Chopin's greatest hits, a blast on the turntables from an Italian DJ, and straight on with the first match, no doubt the traditional goalless draw between the home team and a bunch of no-hopers, in this case Greece.
