Wembley Stadium Elmor rock out in the shadow

Promising young bands one of Guildfoed's took to the stage in front of more than 20,000 people in the shadow of the Wembley Stadium arch last week.
Elmor were hand picked to entertain the masses prior to the New England Patriots versus Tampa Bay Buccaneers American football match.
The band played a 40 minute set at NFLUK’s official party, which was held next to the famous stadium.
Lead guitarist Tristan Patrick Sherfield said: “It was absolutely amazing. We’re used to playing in front of 250 people so playing in front of 20,000 was a shock to the system.
“It didn’t phase us though, we lapped it up.
"We came on after the Buccaneers cheerleaders. We were backstage with them, I should’ve at least got my photo taken with them.”

“Old Blighty”, NFL plays

The game might not have been the most exciting, but it did help the NFL move the ball a bit further down the field towards its goal of at least MORE games abroad…and maybe even an international team.
The New England Patriots beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 35-7 Sunday at the third regular season NFL game to be played overseas.
The game was played before a sell out crowd of 84,254 at London’s Wembley Stadium which usually plays home to the soccer (or “football”) crowd. And if you think it was just an ex-pat crowd you’d be wrong.
“The vast majority of the crowd were British fans of the sport,” NFL UK publicist David Tossell told me. And the majority of them came from outside London, some even from continental Europe.
For their trouble, aside from the somewhat one-sided game, the fans got singers Toni Braxton and Katherine Jenkins in a battle of the national anthems, flags and graphics which gave the game the feel of a “home” Tampa Bay game, and the very well- received Tampa Bay Buccaneer cheer leaders.
So could there be more NFL games abroad next year? “It will take a little more groundwork to develop the fan base here,” NFL official Tossell told me. The teams don’t love the travel, and the owners miss the home game revenues.
But all spoke highly of the reception and the facilities. “It was like a Super Bowl,” New England Patriot quarterback Tom Brady is quoted as saying.
When the Giants played here in 2007 they went on to win the big game. It might work again for the Pats!

when Patriots play Buccaneers at Wemble, Brady, Belichick not expecting another blowout

Tom Brady and Bill Belichick aren't expecting another blowout when their New England Patriots face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday at Wembley Stadium.
The Patriots (4-2) crushed the Tennessee Titans 59-0 in the snow last Sunday, and they'll play a team this weekend that is 0-6.
"Last week was one of those games where a lot of things went right for us," Belichick said at The Oval cricket stadium, where the Patriots practiced Friday. "(It's) very unusual to have a game like that. I'll be lucky if I'll see another one of those in my entire career.
"We don't actually care about last week anymore. We're on to trying to defend and move the ball against Tampa and handle their kicking game."
Brady missed all but one quarter of the opener last season with a knee injury, but he is back this season and threw six touchdown passes last Sunday against the Titans.
"I like where our team's at. Keep practicing hard and keep making improvements," Brady said. "Whatever we did last week, you take the good from it, you understand the things you did well."
The NFL is playing a regular season game in the British capital for the third straight year, and commissioner Roger Goodell said Friday he expects the league to start playing multiple regular-season games in Britain in the next few years.
The Patriots arrived in London early Friday morning, giving them only one full day in London on Saturday before the game at Wembley, the home of England's national football team and host stadium for the 1948 Olympics.
"It's one of the best-known stadiums in Europe," said Patriots linebacker Sebastian Vollmer, who is from Germany and noted that England won the 1966 World Cup final at the iconic venue. "Germany lost, but I think it's going to be good. Really good."
Last year, the New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers spent almost a week in London getting acclimated to the time change, but the Patriots and Buccaneers arrived late — much like the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins did two years ago.
"What we tried to do was to get all our work done in New England, all our preparation," Belichick said of the late arrival. "We tried to cram three days ... into 2 1/2 (before arriving)."
Now that they're in Britain, the team's schedule will be easy until game time, with only a light practice at The Oval on Friday afternoon and a walkthrough at Wembley on Saturday. That will give the players some free time, if they want it.
Patriots linebacker Junior Seau said he wanted to go see "something that's within a mile. Then I'm going to go back and take a nap."
Seau said it was his first time in London, and he wasn't at all upset that the fans back in the United States wouldn't get to see the Patriots and Buccaneers play there. Tampa Bay gave up a home game to play at Wembley.
"They've seen enough of us live," Seau said. "It's time for us to come to London."
Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who called himself an Anglophile and said he is a regular at Wimbledon, was also glad with the decision to send his team to London for a game.
"When you get to Wimbledon and the have an chance to own a team that's going to play at Wembley, that's pretty cool," Kraft said. "I'm looking forward to that."
American football is not nearly as popular in London as the English version, but Wembley has still been packing in the NFL fans over the last few years. Many will be there this year to see Brady, one of the greatest quarterback to ever play the game. But despite being relatively anonymous in London, he still doesn't go unnoticed.
"Americans, they recognize me," Brady said with a smile.

Handover Ceremony

embers of the cast for the Handover Ceremony in Beijing visited Wembley Stadium today to get a feel for performing in a large iconic stadium.
The cast will perform in the eight-minute segment during the Closing Ceremony of the Beijing Games, when the Olympic Flag is handed over from Beijing to London. Dancers from the Royal Opera House, CanDoCo and Zoo Nation are among those taking part.

Handover Ceremony Director Stephen Powell said: ‘This visit to Wembley Stadium was a vital part of our rehearsal process. The object was to give the cast a sense of scale and occasion and of what it might be like walking onto the field of play in a beautiful and iconic stadium. ‘It also reminds us that we are part of major sporting as well as a major cultural event. It has certainly done that and I can’t think of a more fitting start our Olympic Handover rehearsals.’

The Handover will start with a performance of the national anthem by the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain, it was also announced today. A special soundtrack of the anthem has been recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Handover Ceremonies’ Musical Director Philip Sheppard. Paul Roseby, the National Youth Theatre’s Artistic Director, said: ‘For the National Youth Theatre to be part of the historic Handover Ceremony in Beijing sends a positive message to all young people across the globe. We will not only be representing the best of Britain’s youth, but our group of culturally diverse, talented young people will take this life changing experience to inspire thousands more to celebrate youth, innovation and friendship at the London Games in 2012. We applaud it!’
