"I've done a lot in my career, and opening the FIFA World Cup to 80,000 football fans in the stadium and many millions all over the world is a boyhood dream", Williams said in a statement.

It couldn't have been about the backlash that he's received for performing at the controversial World Cup (many people aren't happy that Russian Federation has been allowed to host it), as that mostly started to leak out while he was performing. The final takes place at the 81,000-capacity Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday, 15 July.

The opening ceremony of the 2018 World Cup date is June 14, 2018.

The FIFA 2018 World Cup hits the ground running in Russian Federation this week. The Trophy Tour has been a great platform to get the entire world and the host country excited for the 2018 FIFA World Cup that kicks off in less than one week. "We'd like to invite football and music fans to party with us in Russian Federation, in the stadium, or to tune in their TVs a little earlier for an unforgettable show".
