Foo Fighters will headline the Jaguar Land Rover Invictus Games closing concert.

The US rockers will lead a star-studded line-up including Kaiser Chiefs, Ellie Goulding, Ryan Adams, The Vamps, Rizzle Kicks and James Blunt, when they perform at the event in London on September 14, their first UK gig in some time.

The gig will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London to celebrate Invictus Games, launched by Britain's Prince Harry to use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect of those who serve their country.

Foo Fighters said: ''Invictus games, look out...THE FOO FIGHTERS ARE COMING. What a perfect way to finally return to the UK for the first time in years...been waaaay too long! Thanks for having us, it is truly an honour to come play for these incredible men and women. Can't wait to do our thing for you...''

Prince Harry added: ''I am hugely grateful to all the artists and organisers for coming together in September to put on what will be a truly awesome concert. It will be a celebration of everything the competitors will have achieved over the four days of the Invictus Games, not to mention the efforts of the hundreds of other athletes we couldn't fit into the teams this year. And for those who didn't make it back from operations, this is also for you.''

The concert will also include the medal presentations for the inspirational winning competitors. Starting at 5pm, the five-hour multi-artist event will have highlights broadcast by the BBC.

Tickets will go on sale at 09:00am BST on Friday 1 August priced £49 from axs.com / stubhub.co.uk
