LONDON — Sunday is the much-anticipated closing ceremony of the London Olympics, titled "A Symphony of British Music." Expect the tone of the program to be much different from the opening ceremony. Don't expect to see any belching smokestacks or tributes to children's hospitals. You may see a Spice Girl or two, though.
Like the opening ceremony, much of what will happen is being kept under wraps. But a few details have trickled out, and some interesting people have been spotted around town, so we can make a few educated guesses.
How else can you explain the rumored appearance of Muse and One Direction?
With the latter, the boy band, it seems to be an attempt to corner the 9-and-under market.
(Then again, the 9-year-olds I know will probably be in bed by the time the closing ceremony starts to get interesting on the West Coast.)
Annie Lennox, Kate Bush and Kaiser Chiefs, if they appear, could help the gala nudge into bronze-medal territory, up from the DNF zone.
