Anythin different than Bocelli is disappointing


dfla01

That really was the perfect start to the euros

2009 Barca-United CL final in Rome. Literally goosebumps man.


Kilogrammys

Didn’t he also do the Atletico - Real final in Milan 2016?


Ritzkjeks1

Is he that good? I might go to his concert here in Norway


LewsTherin177

Just bring Placido Domingo or Andrea Bocelli every year.

Havana and inshallah

just get the eurovision song contest winner! :D


xaviernoodlebrain

I’m just imagining some of the possibilities now. Some of them would be hilarious.


Daddy_Kromkamp

I hate the process of super-bowling the Champions league final.


Gytarius626

It’s just capitalism running its course, hence why the Super League is inevitable down the line.


Ocean_0073

Dreams can’t be buy Bruno


DeKosterIsNietDom

Just turn on your TV when the match actually starts then? Why care whether they have a little show before the game or not?


AdPotential9974

How does this sub manage to get triggered by Camila Cabello?


Tyrannosaurusallegri

Ikr. I’m not even American and I enjoy these pre match shows before the finals like they have done in the Euro 16 and 20, World Cup 2018, and previous UCL finals. At least they’re not a cringe fest like the Super Bowl where they bring in the Rock to do a dramatic speech and try to sponsor every little thing.


mactib

Its gonna get there. Very slippery slope.


mactib

I hate that British commentators are starting to call playmakers quarterbacks. It's super annoying. Pirlo was a playmaker. He was not a quarterback. James Rodrigues is a playmaker. Not a fucking quarterback.


doriscissorsfind441

Why? How does this harm anyone? Its just more entertainment.


imfcknretarded

Yeah, as long as half time is still 15 minutes and there's no commercial time outs like in the NBA I'm fine with it, my mom enjoys those shows before cup finals


LilHalwaPoori

I think in CL games there are sometimes 20minutes in between..


HIGUAINS_DICKSUCKER

no


stpstrt

Why? As in why just fucking make up some bullshit?


_cumblast_

I'm fine with pre-match shows but the performers should be from Europe


vadapaav

No body wants to see the Gallagher brothers blithering like a goat on cocaine


stringsandthings3

That's weird. Loads of the players aren't from Europe...


WhippedGrim

Not relevant.


_cumblast_

Hardly the same thing.


capflow

Players are the main performers of the night


mahdiiick

Non-issue


los_blanco_14

Thats bs logic. A non european country constitutes for one of the highest percent of CL players.


kalamari__

highest is spain https://fbref.com/en/comps/8/nations/Champions-League-Nationalities


los_blanco_14

My bad then


capflow

To be fair your point still stands, you've said "one of the highest"


los_blanco_14

I edited it thats why


LilHalwaPoori

For players sure, but Brazil has the most minutes under them, meaning Brazilians have spent more time there, and they also have the most goals out of all nationalities in CL, first one to cross 2000 recently..


los_blanco_14

Game's gone. Bring ishowspeed for the ceremony.


GermanyWillWinWC2022

Sewy


razycal970

Simple as that, bro


RoXasXIIIav

SHAKE dance on the ucl opening


B_e_l_l_

There's an opening ceremony for the UCL final?


[deleted]

It’s had one for several years. E.g. of some previous performers: - Alicia Keys (2016) - Black Eyed Peas (2017) - Dua Lipa (2018)


B_e_l_l_

Has there? It must just not get broadcast in the UK. I swear that BT just do the normal build up.


TheConundrum98

Dua Lipa 2018, Imagine Dragons 2019, I have no idea who it was during lockdown or if there even was one


stingen

Last year it was a virtual one with Marshmellow


Daramangarasu

And it was embarrassing


LilHalwaPoori

Just watched it, it was fine tbh..


[deleted]

Honestly, I only turn it on at KO bc the pre match talk is just a waste of time imo. And that’s for any game, most pundits offer nothing worth hearing. Any good quotes worth hearing will be posted here/Twitter. There was a ceremony in 2015 but that had no singer so 2016 might be the first singing one.


Fortree_Lover

What are you on about it’s great really looking forward to Owen saying “whichever team scores more goals will take home the cup”


TripleTwix

It’s so annoying (the ex-player pundits), I swear some of the commentators of the matches (not ex players) provide much much better analysis mid-game and seem way more prepared with facts etc…


BadCogs

Selena did it last time if I remember.


mynameisfreddit

I seem to remember them joking once from the punditry box "you may be able to hear Dua Lipa performing behind us, so we apologise for that"


SpearofTrium05

There was also 2 Cellos once. It was sick, the players walked onto the pitch either side of them


Magnetronaap

Especially impressive how solo artists manage to do the multi-voice UCL hymne.


ChrisEvansFan

Awwww…. instead of like a pop concert can they do some kind of orchestra concert instead? Like Hans Zimmer type of “concert”.


lebronjamesgoat1

That be rad


kostajepaosmosta

Like 2 cellos


peepsinthemicrowave

Alright guys relax. We get it. You are classier than other sports crowds.


suhxa

No


aboidaz

/r/justneckbeardthings


capflow

They should crash a plane inside the stadium 👀


fahad_k91

Just bring slash to play the anthem or something


Vast_Cry6094

Asensio's Hit-List : \- Dua Lipa ✔️ \- Camila Cabello 🔜👀


seshoma

Lucky bastard


los_blanco_14

Ikr Dua lipa is very lucky


miroa12004

Dua Lipa said she had no idea who Asensio was.


los_blanco_14

Everyone knows that handsome ,but utter garbage when he plays anyone other than mallorca, spaniard


From-UoM

Ofcourse she did


chanandlerbonggg_

She's lying


mavsmcfc

Pep saw this and thought fuck it we’ll come back to the UCL final when darude plays sandstorm.


IcefoxX5

in other news: *Camila Cabello will spend the night with Marco Asensio after the UCL Final*


anip94

nooooo 😭😭 bring back zara larsson or dua lipa or we riot


TheConundrum98

2Cellos playing the CL anthem while the players come out the tunnels was great tbf


Saaamwise

I loved that one. The atmosphere was absolutely electric and I get goosebumps anytime I watch that video.


Jackrrr10000

Too bad they are on a break😔


RonaldoNoodleHair

All day American artists


boxro

The All American Rejects


legend434

Don't worry. It ends tonight.


ZaDoruphin

Hope the fans give UEFA hell.


Buffythedragonslayer

We don't need that shit


auctus10

Better bring some musicians and play champions league anthem live. Like they did with 2Cello in 2018


RioBeckenbauer

Seems like Liverpool have taken very kindly to One Kiss after Kyiv.


ZampyaMaster007

Lol we are blasting it whenever possible


los_blanco_14

Dont worry, there will be better singers in the conference league final.


Just_an_Empath

What do you mean "we"? lmao


AdPotential9974

This is the dumbest thing to be upset over


HungryVegetation

This doesn’t affect the match at all, what harm is there having a musical performance before the match. People get triggered by the weirdest shit.


billymeehan

Saying it's not needed means you're "triggered". Have you ever had the opinion that something shouldn't happen?


HungryVegetation

Ok sure, but tell me what about it you are opposed to.


billymeehan

Camila Cebllo is not the target audience for the person in the stadium. Do you think the average person who will be watching a football match prefers this? It's just over commercialisation and UEFA thinking thwey're trying to appeal to a younger crowd, it shows how out of touch they are.


Sankaritarina

TIL that the UCL final has an opening ceremony with people singing and all that stuff


NOCTAGOLF_LA

As an American I don’t even think they would let her headline the super bowl. Pretty shocked she got the champions league. She is MEH. Whoever is booking the talent, reconsider your profession


Cashew_Fan

The Champions League opening ceremony isn't the Superbowl half time show. It's not even *that* well known about. Camilla Cabello still seems a slightly weird choice, but it's not really a big deal. Most of the choices have been fairly uninspired and all of them bar Dua Lipa were from America. Why for example were the Black Eyed Peas performing in 2016 lmao? If they wanted a really good choice for this year, someone European, relevant, and could put on a great show, they'd go for someone like Stromae. Or even just give Bocelli the full slot for something really incredible.


Badass_Bunny

I did not even know that there was an opening ceremony


[deleted]

Same here i never knew there was a opening ceremony


good_udichi

It would be terrible like last year with selena. Give us Dua Lipa and we would be fine.


Make_duelling_legal

Not sure people want to watch a concert before the conference league final


HugeVampireSquid

Cradle of filth or gtfo


DeliriumHuntens

Anyone, not at the stadium, watches this stuff ?


[deleted]

Maybe corporate ticket holders. Cause I highly doubt fans even bother to care about it.


jcald60

Give us metallica


HarshangLad

How about no one


Storm_LFC_Cowboys

Dua Lipa or bust.


RandyLiddell

They have music shows in the Super Bowl because American Football is boring as fuck with a lot down time where nothing happens. This is pointless.


Gocrazyfut

That doesn’t even make sense lmao


MHPengwingz

Is she even that big globally? Or did uefa really like that piece of shit remake of Cinderella?


LilHalwaPoori

I think Havana and Seniorita are big hits globally..


vadapaav

Oh those are her songs. Not bad, very catchy


Akuma_isworried

Least she's Latin American, she'll actually probably know something about the game.


jfloes

She’s Cuban lol, they couldn’t care less about futbol


E_EqualsDankCSquared

She's Mexican-Cuban


Fmartins84

Who???


S7ORM7ROOPER_30

2cellos or Hans Zimmer is much better than to bring these shitty pop stars.


exausto

Why? this singer is terrible.


PassToMessi91

Wish they brought back 2Cellos. They were epic.


Pale-Birthday-5185

Could they not just choose an European singer


smthingawesome

I must have Imagined Dragons at a CL Final. Might have been a fever dream.


Bladerslash

Fuck thats terrible. She really went to a racism rehab


desuscsgous

just googled cause I didnt know wtf you were saying but all I can find is something she said in 2012, bit edgy but thats it, no?


Bladerslash

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.www.complex.com/music/2019/12/camila-cabello-racist-language-apology , that apology was just damage control at the time jn 2019, she probably is still a racist.


desuscsgous

dunno, just reads like typical edgy 2012 internet shit

Scroll down in the link, you will see what she had on her tumblr, i am not just gonna say someone is racist for the piss of it.


Cytizens9320

Her and Charlie Puth go hand in hand


MiguelAlmiron

Better than Dua Lipa atleast


foysalefty7

I think Liverpool win UCL! Real Madrid tata


stpstrt

Dummy


RNdadag

Cowdude179

Give me Andrea Bocelli


kaiko1

If they have to do a show, at least bring Stromae now that he’s finally back


glamredhel69

We want Enrico Pallazzo.


Officer_McNutty

Who?


Mourinholib99

the old man yells at cloud takes are so annoying. Call me when they do it at halftime- im with you then


helmicartal1616

i need kendrick lamar


InbredLegoExpress

Not sure a bunch of dudes aged 30+ is the right target audience for an American female pop artists live concert, but as long as it doesnt interfere or get televised over the pre match build up here im fine with it.


Oshowcinco

I remember when Remy Cabella played for Newcastle. His career has really taken off since then

Will she be singing the champions league theme? I get bringing someone in to sing that but I don’t think the champions league need anything more.


Superb-Confidence-44

And we skip to 21h. Easy
