With the Summer Olympics of 2012 in London around the corner, rumours are rive about who will take part in the opening ceremony, which can only be glamorous. Digital Spy reports that Sir Elton John is reportedly keen to hook up with Muse for a performance at next summer's Olympics in London. "Elton has never put on subtle live shows but he wants the Olympic gig to be even more overblown and spectacular than ever," a source told The Sun. "He's been a huge fan of Matt Bellamy's band for years and is desperate to collaborate with them."
They added: "A show during the London Olympics will be the ideal opportunity. And with Muse's reputation as one of the best live groups in the world it's bound to be special." Previous reports have suggested that former Beatles star Sir Paul McCartney will open the ceremony, which will take place on 27 July 2012. Girls Aloud, the Spice Girls and Coldplay have reportedly also been approached to take part in the celebrations.
