Olympics: Framlingham’s Ed Sheeran confirms he will play with Pink Floyd at London 2012 closing ceremony
SUFFOLK singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran appears to have put rumours to rest about his involvement in the Olympic closing ceremony.
The 21 year-old musician from Framlingham has admitted that he will definitely be playing at the London 2012 swansong.
Despite rumours that he could play with rock band The Who the former Thomas Mills High School student is reported as saying that he will actually be playing with members of Pink Floyd.
He is understood to have told an Australian radio station that they will be performing, Wish You Were Here.
Nick Mason, drummer of Pink Floyd, has already confirmed that he will be performing on behalf of the band.
Asked if he was playing, Ed said: “I’m playing the closing ceremony - which I think is kinda cool right? A lot of people think that I’m doing a song with The Who but I’m not - I’m doing a song with Pink Floyd. I’m doing Wish You Were Here.”
The closing ceremony will take place on Sunday, August 12 and is set to be a celebration of British music from the last 50 years.
