Olympics closing ceremony to be a Blur
Date Posted: 22/02/12
Blur will headline the BT London Live closing ceremony in Hyde Park and Victoria Park, which marks the end of the London 2012 Olympics.
The closing ceremony will take place on Sunday, August 12th.
Also playing the concert dubbed the Best of British is New Order and The Specials, with one more special guest to be announced. The line-up gives even those who do not want to attend the Olympics a reason to visit London during the legendary sports event's residency.
The famous London parks will be hosting a series of events throughout the Olympics, as well as broadcasting on giant outdoor screens.
Blue won the Outstanding Contribution Award at this year's BRIT Awards on Tuesday, 21st February.
The band first formed in 1989 before splitting in 2003. After a six year absence they reformed in 2009 to play a reunion show in Hyde Park, where they now return to play one of the biggest shows of their career in August.
