Rizzle Kicks Feel "Part Of History" As They Play Olympic Torch Relay Finale Gig - Audio
26 July 2012, 16:02
The duo of Jordan and Harley thrill fans with a hit-filled set at the event in London's Hyde Park.
Rizzle Kicks told Capital they felt "part of history" as they played a concert to celebrate the Olympic Torch Relay Finale presented by Coca-Cola in London today (26th July).
"There's a lot of people here. It's a huge momentous occasion. We're super-excited," Jordan Stephens told Capital FM.
Rizzle Kicks followed Wretch 32 onto the main stage and entertained fans with songs from their debut album 'Stereo Typical'.
Jumping energetically around the stage in shorts due to the blazing sunshine, the duo's hits 'Mama Do The Hump' and 'Down With The Trumpets' enjoyed the biggest cheers of their set.
Speaking before they took to the stage in front of nearly 80,000 fans on the eve of the London 2012 Olympic Games, Rizzle Kicks admitted the performance meant a lot because they had already carried the Olympic Torch.
The duo joined a host of musicians who have also carried the Torch when they ran with it through the streets of Eastbourne earlier this month.
"It feels like a huge part of history," Harley said, before jokingly adding: "If we flop after our second album, at least we'll be in the history books for carrying the Torch."

As well as live performances, the event will also celebrate the 8,000 torchbearers who have carried the Olympic Flame on its 70-day journey around the UK.
This includes the Coca-Cola Future Flames - a group of people who have done inspiring work in their local communities around the country.
