The UK chart-topping artist, Diana Vickers, will headline a spectacular pre-match entertainment line-up at the Engage Super League Grand Final on Saturday October 2.
The English singer-songwriter and stage actress will perform a four-song set in the build up to the Grand Final, including her debut UK Number 1 single ‘Once’.
“I am really looking forward to what will be a hugely entertaining and unique evening in Manchester,” said Vickers, who will release her next single “My Wicked Heart” on November 7.
“I have never played at a sporting event before, so performing on the Old Trafford pitch before the Engage Super League Grand Final will be very exciting and an amazing experience.”
Old Trafford will also showcase Welsh operatic singer Rhydian Roberts, who will perform the Grand Final anthem ‘Jerusalem’ before the teams emerge from the tunnel. Rhydian, who rose to fame on X Factor in 2007, will be joined by Popstars and Pop Idol star Darius Campbell who will provide half-time entertainment.
