Rock legends Pink Floyd are set to reunite and perform at the Olympics.
The celebrated group, whose original line-up last played together at Live 8 in 2005 after more than 20 years apart, are expected to be among the star acts at the closing ceremony in August.
“It’s long been made clear it would take something very special to get Pink Floyd back together again and it doesn’t get any bigger than the Olympics,” says an insider.
“Like Sir Paul [McCartney, who is tipped to open the Games], they have been a major part of the nation’s culture over the past 40 years and it will be very fitting that they’re involved when London is on show to the world. It’s hoped everything can be confirmed in the coming weeks.”
