Cabello will kick off the UEFA Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid on Saturday, May 28, at the Stade de France in Paris. The singer will perform a five-minute mashup of her chart-topping singles, as well as new songs from her newly released third studio album, ‘Familia.’
The carnival-themed event will include a plethora of dancers, costumes, and musicians, as well as high-energy choreography meant to entertain fans both inside and outside the stadium.
“I’m so excited to be taking to the stage at UEFA Champions League final in Paris this month! I intend on putting on a really special show, bringing together the spirit of my Latin heritage and a feeling of togetherness for sports and music fans all over the world – I can’t wait!” Cabello said of the upcoming performance.
The singer made the announcement with a vivid video in which she performs her 2017 hit “Havana” in a colorful, flowering AI universe. She dances across the stage before whirling around as her blue gown turns into a flowy pink gown, and she transitions into her latest hit, “Bam Bam” as a virtual version of the champion’s cup floats high above her.
“Pepsi MAX has been working with UEFA to build the Opening Ceremony platform since 2016 and we’re delighted to be returning to live stadium shows and bringing Camila Cabello to the stage this year,” said Eric Melis, Pepsi’s Global Marketing Vice President.
“Pepsi MAX has a long and rich heritage in entertainment and this year’s show will not disappoint as we bring elements of Camila’s Latina spirit to one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year.”
Each year, major musical artists perform during the Opening Ceremony, with prior performers including Dua Lipa, Marshmello, and Black Eyed Peas. Before the game, the show will be broadcast in over 200 countries across the globe.
Cabello released her third album, ‘Familia,’ last month, saying that the experience “saved my life.”
“The journey to making it completely changed (me) and, not to be dramatic, saved my life,” she shared on TikTok. “Y’know, I started this album at a really sh**ty mental health point and the process of making it, and being vulnerable and being honest about my experiences and leaning on other people changed my life.”
