The Who, Spice Girls to rock Olympics closing ceremony
LONDON (AP) - Get ready for a star-studded spectacular: Olympic Stadium is being transformed into a giant jukebox of British pop and pizzazz for the closing ceremonies of the London Games.
The Spice Girls and The Who are among the acts prepping performances to celebrate the end of the Olympics. Although organisers have tried to the ceremony under wraps, many details have leaked out in the British media - and some of the performers have let the cat out of the bag themselves.
Director David Arnold is calling the production "the greatest after-party in the world." "If the opening ceremony was the wedding, then we're the wedding reception," Mr Arnold told the Daily Telegraph.
The Who, George Michael, Muse and Ed Sheeran have all said they will take part in a show that will include performances of 30 British hit singles from the past five decades. The Pet Shop Boys, Annie Lennox and Fatboy Slim will also be on hand to get people dancing.
