Muse have appeared to confirm they will perform their official London Olympics’ anthem ‘Survival‘ live at the Games’ closing ceremony later this month.
Speaking to NME this week, the band’s drummer Dominic Howard seems to have broken the news, despite the identity of the ceremony’s live performers remaining a closely guarded secret by organisers.
“We showed them a few songs when they asked us about playing the closing ceremony and they loved it,” Howard says. “It represented the enormous competition of what the Olympics is.”
Rumours have also surfaced that Kate Bush will be another artist performing live inside the Olympic Stadium, after online retailer Amazon listed a remix of her 80s classic ‘Running Up That Hill‘ as part of the ‘A Symphony of British Music: Music For The Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games‘ compilation album which will be available digitally on August 12th. The track has since been deleted from listings.
