Blur will headline the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games at London's Hyde Park on Aug. 12.
The band announced the news via a Facebook post saying, "We're rowing in, going for gold, grabbing the baton, for the high jump. No, hang on, is that right? Fact is, Blur have accepted the invite to headline the Olympics' Closing Ceremony Celebration Concert in Hyde Park on 12th August." Nice easy to reveal the news, right?
New Order and The Specials are also set to perform.
Anyone out there planning to head to London for the 2012 Olympic Games?
