British Music at the London 2012 Olympics Opening
The U.K.’s rock and pop big guns featured heavily in an edgy and quintessentially British 2012 Olympics opening ceremony, as the London Games began with a bang.
Stars including Paul McCartney, Arctic Monkeys, Mike Oldfield and Dizzee Rascal all performed live in a spectacular and occasionally surreal show at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, East London.
As the opening ceremony unfolded, the BT London Live Celebration Concert was taking place in London’s Hyde Park.
