Brian Eno and Peter Gabriel to Mastermind World Cup Opening Gala

Published: 2005-12-02
Though we're all excited about having hockey back, lots of folks all over the world are looking forward to the World Cup of Soccer this summer.

But for those who aren't that into soccer (or football for you folks reading in the UK), there's another reason for checking out the festivities: the World Cup Opening Gala.

On June 7th in Berlin, two days before the lads start to kick the ball around, musicians will get together for pre-tournament celebrations.

Experimental Brit musicians Brian Eno and Peter Gabriel will be the creative team behind the show, and promise it won't be anything like the media spectacles at the Olympics or the Super Bowl.

The show will feature performances by ¸ber-catchy hip hop group the Black Eyed Peas, contemporary opera singer Jessye Norman, and Peter Gabriel himself.

For you soccer/football fans, the games will begin June 9th in Munich and will feature their own musical shows.
