Before their performance, the band said: ‘Without a doubt, Wembley Stadium will be a highlight of our career and a real squeeze in our lives.

“After two years of waiting, August 6 will be the biggest show we’ve ever had in the UK, all under the arc of one of the world’s most iconic locations.”

The band had to cancel their Wembley Stadium concert in the midst of lockdown last year, but they’ve moved it to this month.

Nicky previously told MailOnline: ‘We’ve seen big bands do it. We’ve witnessed Coldplay, we’ve seen the Take That guys do it, we’ve seen U2 do it, we’ve seen all those legends do it and it’s really a huge honor to be on the same stage as that kind of bands have done.

“I was five when Live Aid happened, I looked at it and I remember Queen, I remember Freddie, I remember all those moments.

Also for the fans, to see these songs like Flying Without Wings, You Raise Me Up, World of Our Own, Swear It Again, Hello My Love. All those hits dating back to ’99.

“It will be nerve-wracking, but we can’t wait to do it. We take those nights to the grave.’
