David Bowie Turns Down Olympics

News around British music continues to hit the press as a result of the Olympics 2012. The recent closing ceremony saw some of the biggest artists in the music business join together in order to put on a magnificent show; this included a major appearance from the Spice Girls.

British music stars who did not appear at the ceremony have now come out to question why they were not included and many have also stated that they turned down the opportunity to do so.

David Bowie is one of the biggest names who chose to turn down the once in a lifetime opportunity of playing to people all over the world. The closing ceremony of the London Olympics 2012 was watched by hundreds of millions of people across the world.

Other artists that the organisers attempted to secure for the closing ceremony included the Rolling Stones, Kate Bush and the Sex Pistols.

The Who almost turned down the opportunity but then accepted the chance to close the ceremony; the decision to play at the event was helped by the announcement of a tour of the US.

Whilst some major stars did choose not to play at the event there was still plenty of high profile stars who chose to accept the opportunity. The Spice Girls, Take That, Elbow, One Direction and Emeli Sande are just some of the popular names who chose to play at the event.

The Olympics 2012 are not only being celebrated for the fantastic success of the sporting events but also for the legacy left behind for British music.
