George Michael and Pete Townshend to play Olympics
Last week we learned that Paul McCartney will be playing the opening ceremonies for the London Olympics and it has now been revealed that the Who and George Michael will be playing for the closing ceremonies.

For Michael, it will be his first live performance since his close-call with death late last year. The Olympics organizers said 'George is a global icon and this will be a major comeback. The gig will be a fitting Olympics send-off.'

They added 'The committee wanted four major artists, representing Britain over the past 50 years, to headline. The Who are an inspired throwback to the swinging 60s.'

It was recently stated that the Olympic committee had contacted the the band on whether Keith Moon was available to play at the closing. Moon died in 1978.

The other two acts on the closing ceremonies bill are Take That and Emeli Sande. The Olympics close on August 12.
