The best of British pop and rock talent will perform at the Olympics closing ceremony on Sunday.
The three and a half hour musical extravaganza will feature performances by some of the UK’s top acts - past and present - including George Michael, the Spice Girls and The Who, as well as Devon’s Muse and Brit Award winner Ed Sheeran.
Speculation is mounting that reclusive 1970s chart topper Kate Bush will make an appearance, too.
Kate Bush is rumoured to be making an appearance along with Suggs, from Madness, who have been booked in for the big finale
Fans of the singer had their hopes raised when a new 2012 remix of her classic song Running Up That Hill appeared on the Amazon website with a release date of this Sunday, the day of the ceremony.
Her management has declined to comment on the rumours.
Despite the best efforts of Olympic organisers Locog to keep the line-up secret, details have slowly emerged.
Called A Symphony of British Music, the closing ceremony is intended to celebrate Britain’s music industry.
