Stars To Perform At Prince Harry's Games

The Kaiser Chiefs, Ellie Goulding and Rizzle Kicks have been signed up to perform at the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games in London.

The event, which has been set up by Prince Harry, is a Paralympic-style sporting championship for injured servicemen and women.

It is set to take place at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford on Sunday 14 September.

The Foo Fighters, Rizzle Kicks, James Blunt and Military Wives Choirs are among the other acts to feature on the bill.

Harry launched the contest earlier this year to support rehabilitation and raise awareness of those injured serving their countries, with more than 400 wounded services personnel from 14 nations due to take part.

The Prince said: "I am hugely grateful to all the artists and organisers for coming together in September to put on what will be a truly awesome concert.

"It will be a celebration of everything the competitors will have achieved over the four days of the Invictus Games, not to mention the efforts of the hundreds of other athletes we couldn't fit into the teams this year. And for those who didn't make it back from operations, this is also for you."

James Blunt said “The men and women of the service community deserve all of our support. I am so pleased to be a supporter of the Invictus Games and very honoured to be performing at this year's closing concert."
