    With the upcoming tour it's almost impossible for them to play the opening or closing ceremony. It wouldn't surprise me if Sir Paul McCartney would play. I also read Madonna and The Rolling Stones are rumors to play.
    I was armed with a spraycan soul on:
    09.09.2009: Coldplay @ Goffertpark Nijmegen; The Netherlands
    02.07.2011: Coldplay @ Rock Werchter; Belgium

    17.12.2011: Coldplay @ Ahoy Rotterdam; The Netherlands
    06.09.2012: Coldplay @ Malieveld The Hague; The Netherlands

    'Oh Oh Den Haag, it's really great for us to be here. We can't wait till our band can come and play in Den Haag again!'
    Chris Martin on the melody of the Dutch song 'Oh Oh Den Haag' on the Malieveld, The Hague. (06.09.2012).

    Oh well, if it had to be someone other than Coldplay, I'm glad it's Blur
    I can't think of anything interesting for my sig, so this sentence will do.

    Default Adele, Coldplay for London 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony?

    Adele, Coldplay for London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony?
    Published Friday, Feb 24 2012, 5:36am EST | By Daniel Sperling | 5 comments

    Adele and Coldplay are among the acts expected to appear in "an elegant mash-up of British music" to close the London 2012 Olympic Games.

    Music director Kim Gavin said that the August 12 ceremony will be a "fabulous" collection of contemporary stars, as well as classical composers such as Elgar and Holst.


    "Without saying we have booked anyone, it goes from Elgar to Adele," he teased. "It is not just a pop concert, it is not just a classical rendition. It will be everything that we think is fabulous about British music."

    Gavin added: "We are taking a box of fabulously well-done tunes. We are putting them together to write one piece of music that is fabulously balanced."

    "Usually it is something classical but in this case it is an elegant mash-up of British music," The AP reports him as saying. "It will not be just about the music but also about what makes Britain great. We are trying to introduce something that is an absolute melting pot of British creativity."


    Danny Boyle is tasked with creating the London 2012 opening ceremony, while Underworld were appointed as musical directors in December.

    Sir Paul McCartney, Elton John, Muse, X Factor winners Little Mix and Britain's Got Talent gymnastic troupe Spelbound have all been tipped to appear at the July 27 event.

    Ronnie Wood confirmed last week that he has been approached to perform at both ceremonies with The Rolling Stones and The Faces.

    I hesitantly posted it but it's too vague. I don't know how credible Digital Spy is.

    If all this is true and all those artists appear at the closing ceremonies, I am most DEFINITELY going to be watching that. That sounds like it'd be amazing.

    I really hope it turns out to be true.

    If Adele and Coldplay do the closing ceremony and Muse do the opening, then this if something I can't possibly miss.

    Britpop icons Blur will headline a show at London's Hyde Park to celebrate the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics on August 12th. The bill for the event, which will include giant screens displaying highlights from the official closing ceremony, will also feature performances by New Order and the Specials.

    But what about BLur? I thought it was clear that Coldplay won't do the ceremony. Or it's two different shows? I'm so confused
