The Quins men face Northampton in the Premiership and the Quins women meet the Wasps in the Allianz Premier 15s on December 27 at Twickenham Stadium, a short walk from their usual home, the Stoop.
Between the two matches (women go first), Tong will perform a 25-minute DJ set for what is expected to be a sold-out crowd of 82,000. Quins promised “a light show and spectacular dancers”.
Quins CEO Laurie Dalrymple was delighted to have Tong on board, saying: “Big Game is truly London’s biggest rugby party, and the addition of an internationally renowned music pioneer to Pete Tong is worthy of the biggest annual rugby club match ”.
Tong added, “I’ve been fortunate enough to perform at some of the world’s most iconic venues and events for over three decades now, but Big Game particularly appeals to me.
“As a resident of South West London, it’s great to come home to play for my community on the biggest rugby scene in the world. After the past 18 difficult months we have all faced through COVID, Big Game 13 is a time to come together with friends and family to celebrate – and I can’t wait to be at the heart of it! “
