Five-ringed cir­cus be­gins

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC NEWS -

Un­der­world are the mu­si­cal di­rec­tors of tonight’s Lon­don Olympics open­ing cer­e­mony, and have com­posed a the­matic piece that in­cor­po­rates el­e­ments of iconic British mu­sic, from TV themes to clas­si­cal, pop and rock songs. The live line-up has been kept un­der wraps, but there are ru­mours of per­for­mances by ev­ery­one from Dizzee Ras­cal to The Spice Girls, al­though Paul McCart­ney seems a sure bet. Watch it live from 9pm.
