Olympics: Framlingham’s singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran rumoured to be playing with The Who at London 2012 closing ceremony

SUFFOLK singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran is rumoured to be performing with rock legends The Who at the closing ceremony of London 2012.

The 21-year-old, from Framlingham, is currently touring Australia but will he home in time for the Olympic swansong on August 12.

The former Thomas Mills High School student is reported as saying: “The closing ceremony, there were rumours I am playing the closing ceremony. Those rumours may or may not be true.

“If I was to play the closing ceremony, I might be playing with quite a big rock band and I might be playing one of their most famous hits. Might be. And if I was doing that, it would feel quite fun, I think. And it would be quite a moment for me. But that’s if I was doing it.”
