With an expected audience of over 20,000 people, Brit-Award-Winners Blake will join rising soul star Dionne Bromfield (God-daughter & protege of Amy Winehouse) and urban sensation Angel, as the first group to sing at the London Olympic Stadium. Raising funds for the ‘Gold Challenge’ Olympic sports charity, the boys are extremely honored and proud…
….to be performing at this event on April 1st 2012. Stephen Bowman from Blake commented “We’ve been singing patriotic British songs as a band for more than five years now, to sing at the Olympic Stadium is going to be something we tell our grand children about; to be raising funds for so many great charities makes the experience even more special”
Blake have sung at many historic sporting events, including the opening of the Rugby World Cup in 2007, the opening of Wimbledon in 2010, two Charity Shield finals at Wembley Stadium in 2007 and 2011, The Melbourne Cup in Australia in 2009, The World Polo Tournament in London in 2010 and over ten appearances at the 75,000 seat Twickenham Stadium.
