George Michael - Singer/Songwriter
George Michael is due to perform at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games in the Olympic Stadium on 12 August!

The Closing Ceremony celebrates the achievements of athletes at the London 2012 Olympic Games, it will include a procession of the participating nations' flagbearers, followed by athletes appearing together rather than divided by nationality, symbolising how the Games bring the world together. The Closing Ceremony also features a Handover from London to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympic Games, and the extinguishing of the Olympic Flame which has been burning in the stadium since the Games opened on 27 July, signalling the end of the Games.

British music will be at the centre of the ceremony. The Closing Ceremony of the Olympic Games will be titled 'A Symphony of British Music', to celebrate the fact that music has been one of Britain's strongest cultural exports over the last 50 years. The worldwide broadcast of the Ceremony will start at 9pm BST.
