The Enemy have admitted their gig on the roof of Wembley Stadium "might be tricky" - as bassist Andy Hopkins is afraid of heights.

The Coventry band will take to the roof of the stadium before the FA Cup final on May 5, with their 'Talk Of The Terrace' performance set to be broadcast on ESPN along with the game.

Speaking to NME about how the booking came about, Hopkins revealed that The Football Association simply called their management and asked if they'd like to play on the roof of Wembley Stadium.

He said: "We've worked with the FA quite a bit and obviously 'Be Somebody' is the FA Cup song. They just phoned up our management and asked if we wanted to play on the roof of Wembley on cup final day. Of course we said yes."

Then asked what songs the Coventry trio would be playing, Hopkins added: "We're going to play 'Saturday' and hopefully one more. I think it's just going to be for TV, I can't imagine there'll be any crowd up there. I definitely won't be stage diving."

The bassist then admitted that he's a bit nervous about the gig as he's not good with heights, but hopes that the band are playing in the safety of a glass box.

He said of this: "I don't have a clue how they're going to get the gear up there. To be honest, I'm not that good with heights, which could be tricky. I think there's a little glass box we'll be in, but I'm not totally sure."

The Enemy release their comeback album 'Streets In The Sky' on May 21. The Coventry trio recorded the 12-track album with The Bronx's Joby Ford. You can watch the video for the first single, 'Gimme The Sign', by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
