The BT London Live Opening Ceremony Celebration Concert staged in London’s Hyde Park on Friday 27 July presents a multi-talented headline bill, with live performances from some of the biggest acts in the UK, from all four corners of Great Britain.
Live on stage will be multi-million album selling Snow Patrol, BRIT Award-winning Stereophonics, pop superstars Duran Duran and acclaimed singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini.
This massive open-air celebration concert coincides with the key opening moment of the London 2012 Olympic Games, the Opening Ceremony. Not only will the thousands of ticket-holders in Hyde Park see some of the UK’s biggest bands exclusively live on stage, but performances will be timed so that they will also be able to enjoy live coverage, courtesy of the BBC, of the London 2012 Opening Ceremony from the Olympic Park on giant screens.
The full coverage of the Opening Ceremony from the Olympic Park will also be shown on selected screens.
