Fútbol and Marc Anthony, anyone? 

The "Vivir mi vida" singer will take the field at the "El Clásico" match between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona in Miami to perform during halftime, becoming the first artist to headline a halftime show at any International Champions Cup match. 

"It's unprecendented. This is surreal to me," Anthony said during a press conference. "Miami is becoming the epicenter of entertainment, so we take on the challenge of being the first on many levels."

The soccer game is set for July 29 at the Hard Rock Stadium, with other activities, including concerts and team pep rallies, taking place leading up to the clásico

Anthony's Magnus Media, the Miami-based entertainment company, includes Real Madrid players Sergio Ramos and Marcelo in its roster.
