Leicester's Premier League party at the King Power Stadium this Saturday against Everton will be kicked off by opera star Andrea Bocelli.

The club's manager Claudio Ranieri revealed he had been in secret talks with the singer, who has sold more than 80 million records.

He will perform his greatest hit 'Time to Say Goodbye', as well as 'Nessun Dorma' which was made famous by Luciano Pavarotti.

Ranieri relayed his chat with his Italian compatriot: "He said 'I'd like to come and to sing something'. Wow, that's great. It's great. Why not? He comes to all Leicester, all the community. It's great!"
