LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Indie rockers Muse have become the first act to confirm that they will play the revamped Wembley Stadium in London, and are slated to hit the stage on June 16, 2007.
The stadium was set to reopen in August 2005, but a series of delays led to several high profile music and sports events being postponed, including performances by the Rolling Stones, Take That, Bon Jovi and Robbie Williams, and this past summer’s FA Cup soccer tournament.
In a statement on their website, Muse said they were “delighted” about such “good news,” according to the BBC News.
Wembley Stadium’s chief executive Michael Cunnah has offered an update on the reconstruction work, saying the venue was now “looking magnificent.”
“With good progress being made on the site we are aiming to open as early as possible in 2007,” he said.
“We are currently in discussions with a number of event owners and promoters.
“There are likely to be further events announced over the next few months.”
The stadium is expected to open with the 2007 FA Cup final on May 19th. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
