Full details about the line-up for the musical extravaganza that will bring the London Games to an end are being kept a closely-guarded secret, but some acts have confirmed they are playing and there are strong rumours about others.
Fans of Bush had their hopes raised when a new 2012 remix of her classic song Running Up That Hill appeared on the Amazon website with a release date of this Sunday, the day of the closing ceremony.
The listing was later removed and there has been no official confirmation that reclusive 54-year-old British singer-songwriter, who has not toured since 1979, will perform.
Kim Gavin, the artistic director of the closing ceremony, has said that it will be an elegant mash-up of British music from Elgar to Adele, with much-loved songs arranged in a symphonic structure, rather than a conventional concert.
It will be simpler than Danny Boyles epic, spectacular opening ceremony because there are only 17 hours between the end of sporting events and the start of the show in front of 80,000 people in the Olympic Stadium.

Public toilet sex?
George Michael’s performance will not be on stage. He just wants everyone to know that he snagged a ticket in the random draw and will be cruising the many men’s rooms under the stands.
No Keith Moon?
Jimmy Page is really going to be pissed....he was mad they left him out of the opening ceremonies after taking part in the handover in Bejing...
Yep. George Michael - public toilet sex;band Pete Townshend - kiddie porn.
Winning lineup there.. one to miss.
I wonder if George Michael is still hot for his cousin....
How about The Cure and Adam Ant?
Maybe the two surviving Whos can be joined by the two surviving Beatles. The Wheatles?
Why not “The Whotles?”
Met Police constable and George in the toilets:
“GO FOR IT!”
This is, of course, right after George told the constable “If you’re gonna do it do it right (right?) do it with me!”
Very Not Guilty.
Truly one of the greatest musicians in history.
