Is anyone else starting to get the distinct impression that the organizers of the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics are still stuck in the “throwing mud at the wall” stage of development? We’ve already had the rumor of a Beatles/Rolling Stones/Sex Pistols supergroup, there’s been talk of Muse or Coldplay playing; heck some optimists are even suggesting a full Spice Girls reunion.
So it’s not really all that surprising that a mere one day after Girls Aloud confirmed that they will get getting together for a tenth anniversary tour at some point next year, the rumour should do the rounds that one of their gigs will be at the Olympics.
M Is For Music even has a quote from a source, saying: “With the girls already planning to reform next year Olympic Officials are keen for them to open the games.”
“They are the biggest British girl group in recent years and what better way for them to celebrate their tenth anniversary?”
By being upstaged by Sir Paul, Geri Halliwell and all of their wrinkly mates? LOADS of other ways.
OK, who would YOU like to see at the opening ceremony? Tell us here.
