Singer Dua Lipa was reported to perform at the opening ceremony as well. However, she has denied all the reports.

WHERE WILL THE OPENING CEREMONY TAKE PLACE?

The opening ceremony will be held at the 60,000-capacity Al Bayt Stadium located 40km north of Doha. The Al Bayt Stadium is the farthest venue from central Doha but also one of the biggest and has a retractable roof. It is named and designed after the tents used by nomads in the Gulf.

The opening ceremony of the World Cup will take place on November 20, ahead of the opening Group A match between hosts Qatar and Ecuador. It is scheduled to begin at 1400 GMT. The original plan was for the opening ceremony to be held before Qatar's first game on Nov. 21, which would have created the unusual situation of two games being held before it. The opening match was then brought forward by a day.
