Chickenshed will join a stellar line-up of performers appearing at the SSE Arena, Wembley on Sunday 15 August to welcome back Team GB and celebrate their incredible success at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.  

The Team GB Homecoming will be a moment for the nation to celebrate alongside the athlete’s achievements, dedication and passion after a series of stunning performances and medal moments in Tokyo.

We are excited to reveal that Chickenshed will be joining Mica Paris live onstage to perform the iconic and inspirational “Rise Up”.

Team GB Homecoming will host the biggest line-ups of talent seen in the UK since the pandemic began. Artists include Anne-Marie, Bastille, Griff, Laura Mvula, Nile Rodgers, Rag’n’Bone Man, YungBlud, English National Ballet, Chickenshed and contemporary dance company Rambert. 

Apart from Mica Paris performing with Chickenshed, there will be a further range of unique collaborations, including a fully immersive performance by Anne-Marie and English National Ballet; Yungblud performing one of David Bowie’s signature songs ‘Heroes’ with dance-circus company Motionhouse, KSI will be performing his recent smash “Holiday’ which features on his Number 1 album, “All Over The Place, and Laura Mvula performing to the backdrop of Rambert. Bastille will be giving a unique performance of a new single Distorted Light Beam, accompanied by a live string orchestra. Rag’n’Bone Man is set to provide a captivating opening to the show, with the first of two performances from him.

Hosted by BBC Radio 1’s Clara Amfo and Greg James, the Team GB Homecoming Concert will air on BBC One at 7.30pm on Sunday. The show will take place in front of a live audience of 8,000 people, made up of National Lottery players as a thank you for their help funding athletes during their journey to Tokyo; key workers gifted tickets to thank them for their tremendous work during the pandemic; and athlete friends and family who were unable to travel to Tokyo to support their loved ones.

Chickenshed are thrilled to be a part of this amazing event and look forward to celebrating the return of our phenomenal athletes as they celebrate their amazing haul of 65 medals at Tokyo 2020 equalling their performance as hosts to the Games nine years ago.
