Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr rumoured to perform at London Olympics

PanARMENIAN.Net - Stories have been circulating this week that The Beatles will reform for the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games.

When questioned on US TV, Paul McCartney dropped hints that he “might be involved” and, pressed on the Beatles question, added “I hear they’re planning this sort of music.” There have been further suggestions that his last surviving band mate, 70-year-old Ringo Starr will perform with 68-year-old McCartney, although I think we can dismiss as internet fantasy the rumour that John Lennon and George Harrison might be represented by their musical offspring, Sean and Dhani, The Telegraph reported.

Girls Aloud, Spice Girls, Coldplay and Muse were named as other potential participants of opening and closing ceremonies at London 2012 Olympic Games.
