The two-hour celebration will take place on Southsea common on July 15th. The show will also feature local singers, dancers, entertainers and sports stars so make sure you get involved and show your support for local talent.
Portsmouth has been chosen as an overnight stopping point for the torch when it arrives in the city from Jersey, before leaving for Brighton the following day.
Rizzle Kicks said: ‘We can’t wait to bring our live show to Coca-Cola’s evening celebrations for the Olympic torch relay. Just being part of the Olympics is buzzing and to be involved with all the young people who are running the Olympic Flame is something we’re really excited about.’
