The world-renowned tenor is said to have made the promise six weeks ago. On Monday the squad went ahead and beat the 5,000-1 odds to win the Premier League, so to Leicester Bocelli will go. 

Bocelli will perform Nessun Dorma and Time To Say Goodbye at the Foxes’ home game this Saturday 7th May. Taking time out of his own world tour, no less. 

Fans are expected to pack Leicester’s King Power Stadium on Saturday to see the champions lift the trophy after their penultimate league game against Everton.
