Blur To Headline Olympics Closing Concert

Not content with picking up the outstanding contribution award at the Brit awards on Tuesday night, Blur have been announced as the headline act for the 2012 Olympics closing celebration concert in Hyde Park. It will be Blur’s only major live performance this year. The gig takes place on 12 August to coincide with the closing ceremony of the games at the Olympic stadium in Stratford but is a distinct event, the climax of London’s celebrations for the games. Joining Blur for what is being billed as a “Best of British” line up will be the Specials and New Order with a further act to be announced.
