To celebrate the homecoming of the incredible team GB following this year's Tokyo 2020 Olympics, BBC One will stream a special concert with a number of impressive guests. Streaming from London's Wembley Arena on 15 Aug., the 90-minute special will be hosted by BBC Radio 1's Greg James and Clara Amfo, and will see performances from the likes of Anne-Marie, Yungblud, Laura Mvula, Rag'n'Bone Man, Bastille, and the legendary Nile Rodgers.
Along with music, you can expect to see a few fully immersive performances from English National Ballet and Chickenshed, and Laura Mvula's performance is also said to be performed against the backdrop of Rambert dance company. On the night, Wembley arena will be home to a live audience of 8,000 people, made up of the nation's key workers who will have been gifted tickets as a thank you for their hard work and dedication.
"It would be an understatement to say that the road to Tokyo 2020 has not been easy for Team GB but their dedication and passion to the sports they love has been nothing short of inspiring!" Amfo said in a statement. "I am so honoured to be hosting Team GB's Homecoming Concert by The National Lottery with Greg, on what promises to be a brilliant show full of celebration and love! Every single athlete deserves the very best homecoming and what better place than Wembley with these world class artists!", she added.
