<sob>

it's all coming to an end. It has been brillianttorch

I really hope not, Katisha (I was Pitti-Sing once, by the way - not on here, on stage). I fear you may be right though. I hope people have less patience with prima donna footballers after seeing genuine sportspeople at both events. WHat can we do to cahnge it if it isn't what we want?

paRaahhlympiansgoingforgold Sun 09-Sep-12 21:27:04

Is there anyone else on? Or is this a Coldplay gig til 11pm??

I wonder how much of this is clear 'live'or are there lots of screens showing it close up?

Who is she ?

Loved the first bit, not enjoying ColdPlay and may well be saying goodnight soon.

However in terms of 'inspiring a generation' DS (nearly 10) this evening asked to join an athletics clubtorch.......I shall be looking to book tickets for 2024!

He seems to have forgotten the tune to this one...

travellingwilbury Sun 09-Sep-12 21:31:01

And now I know . I have had enough of coldplay now

OhYouGreatGreatBritain Sun 09-Sep-12 21:31:35

Coldplay aren't really my thing, it's all a bit soporific.

cardibach Sun 09-Sep-12 21:31:46

I heard that there were other 'surprise' guests, Raahh. I hope so. BUt they have to play Viva la Vida first or I will be sad.

lapsedorienteerer Sun 09-Sep-12 21:31:47

Most people in the stadium audience will be barely able to see this (except big screen) so suspect we at home have a better idea of what's going on.

paRaahhlympiansgoingforgold Sun 09-Sep-12 21:32:41

ooh, now i like the bike bit.

LeeCoakley Sun 09-Sep-12 21:34:35

Like this better than the other Closing Ceremony. The crowd 'lights' are bloody amazing to watch. And 'normalising' disability - the drummer, the dancers, other people taking part -superb.

I'm annoyed I didn't get tickets when I had the chance.

Thanks London 2012 for a fantastic summer torch

I'm going to stick the TV on mute. I hate Coldplay.

lapsedorienteerer Sun 09-Sep-12 21:35:13

Yes, liking the acrobatic/acting stuff but not ColdPlay. I think the Lance Corporal who was the narrator should clearly be on the stage, not in an infantry Battalion.

ISeeThreadPeople Sun 09-Sep-12 21:35:31

Anything other than Coldplay happening tonight?

SminkoPinko Sun 09-Sep-12 21:36:39

Too much coldplay. All their songs sound the same.

paRaahhlympiansgoingforgold Sun 09-Sep-12 21:36:55

There is a bit too much Coldplay, really. I love the light show though.

TunaPastaBake Sun 09-Sep-12 21:37:02

Are they saving Sir Paul for the end ? grin

lapsedorienteerer Sun 09-Sep-12 21:37:21

I agree with LeeC, in fact I'd go as far as to say this is the best of the four opening/closing ceremonies (with the exception of ColdPlay).

paRaahhlympiansgoingforgold Sun 09-Sep-12 21:38:29

Tuna- maybe that's the 'surprise'grin

paRaahhlympiansgoingforgold Sun 09-Sep-12 21:39:35

Are they singing all the seasons?? How many have we had?

AmIthatbad Sun 09-Sep-12 21:39:39

I love Coldplay, but they should have just done two songs. They have kind of taken over.

Is Rihanna turning up?

tkband3 Sun 09-Sep-12 21:39:45

God Coldplay are rubbish - sound like they haven't played together in months! Isn't anyone else on or is it just an extended Coldplay gig...hope not!

How many people paid a fortune for what is unfortunately a glorified Coldplay concert?

Visually stunning, I'm loving it but not enough music variety for me.

lapsedorienteerer Sun 09-Sep-12 21:41:11

Decorating the Fish now...............

paRaahhlympiansgoingforgold Sun 09-Sep-12 21:41:27

the fish is cool. Let's hope it contains other acts...
