Just like the Olympics’ closely guarded theatrical opening ceremony, the details of the games’ closing ceremony are being well-kept under wraps.
We know we can expect plenty of grand performances, dancers and athletes from all the competing countries joining in on the ceremonious event, but what about the musical performances?
The theme of London’s closing ceremonies titled “A Symphony of British Music” (produced by Artistic Director Kim Gavin), gives off clues as to what to expect when it comes to which artists will be performing at the ceremony. Plus, numerous sitings of music stars at the Olympic Village have generated rumors as to who exactly is scheduled to perform.
One of the most widely known performance rumors is that Britain’s hugely popular ’90s girl group The Spice Girls are reuniting on stage for a performance. The speculation for this rumor is pretty much gone since all five members – Sporty, Ginger, Posh, Baby and Scary – have been spotted on site rehearsing, according to Telegraph.
Telegraph also reports that George Michael, Jessie J, Pet Shop Boys, Tinie Tempah, Brian May and Annie Lennox have also all been spotted by photographers roaming the vicinity.
Other acts speculated to perform during the two-and-a-half-hour closing ceremonies include Britain’s shining star Adele singing “Someone Like You,” Ray Davies of The Kinks singing “Waterloo Sunset” and Kate Bush singing “Running Up That Hill.” British rock acts such as Muse, The Who, and Ed Sheeran with members of Pink Floyd are also rumored to be involved with the closing ceremonies.
From all the rumors buzzing so far, it’s looking like the closing ceremonies will be a jam-packed music spectacle. The London Olympics closing ceremony will take place on Sunday on NBC from 7 to 10:38 p.m. PDT, and will feature over 4,000 performers and the extinguishing of the flame.
Out of all the artists rumored to perform, who are you most excited to see?
