The Invictus Games - an international Paralympic-style multi-sport event, created by Prince Harry - will take place in Canada this year and Springsteen will join Bryan Adams, Kelly Clarkson, Bachman and Turner and Couer de Pirate for the September 30 closing ceremony in Toronto.

A message on his website states: "At the Invictus Games, it's not just about the hurdles that competitors experienced during competition, but about overcoming the obstacles that life has presented them.

"The Games are a remarkable opportunity for brothers and sisters in arms to join forces and demonstrate the true strength of their spirit. It is an absolute honor and privilege to perform for them at the Closing Ceremony as a send-off to a week of competition in Toronto."

Michael Burns, CEO, Invictus Games Toronto 2017 Committee added: "Talk about closing the Games with a bang! As a committee, we couldn't be more thrilled to add the iconic Bruce Springsteen to an already outstanding lineup of Closing Ceremony talent. We wanted to deliver memories from these Games in Toronto, and this represents the culmination of two years of planning and work."

550 injured service members and veterans from 17 nations will compete in the third annual Invictus Games in September.
