Pink Floyd deny reports of Ed Sheeran Olympic closing performance | Music News

Earlier this week, it was reported that Ed Sheeran would perform with iconic rock band Pink Floyd at the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony. The + singer made the announcement on Australian radio, where he detailed that he and drummer Nick Mason (the only member confirmed to appear) would play “Wish You Were Here,” the title track from the group’s 1975 album.

“A lot of people think I’m doing a song with The Who, but I’m not, I’m doing a song with Pink Floyd, doing ‘Wish You Were Here,” he told Nova 106.9.

However, in a press released issued by Pink Floyd, the band strenuously deny claims of any Olympics performance. It reads:

“In response to press speculation, Pink Floyd state that the band is NOT performing at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.”

Looks like we’re back to the who-will-Ed-Sheeran-play-with-at-the-Olympics guessing game, folks. He did hint that he will be performing alongside a “big rock band,” after all. Stay tuned to SoulCulture for further details as they become available.
