olympic ceremony

Post by adbusters » Thu Jul 26, 2012 4:24 pm

Now of course I don't expect you to answer this until you have actually played there, but are you playing the opening ceremony?ha and is danny boyle as amazing as he seems to be? also does Nigel later on the ceremony become one of the amazing drummers?

So many question but my mind is absolutely buzzing since seeing you play at the rehearsal yesterday and being the only person in my section screaming your amazing lyrics much to the bemusement of anyone around me. By the way this is very much deserved and in terms of being exposed to so many people without being anywhere near a major record label it is epic.

If Frank is playing the opening ceremony, that's absolutely mind blowing and I'm so happy for him.

If he isn't, whatever I'm still buzzing from Mongol Horde.

...when I heard that he /isn't/ playing, of course, I mean, playing to a billion people would have been life changing, gutted for him.

I imagine anyone who has been asked to be part of the ceremony would have signed some form of Non Disclosure form to TRY and keep it all as secret as possible.

I am sure after tonight artists involved will be allowed to discuss matters - but in advance of that they would be breaking their contracts so can't say.

It's only a few hours away - so maybe best just to wait and see what happens

It makes me wonder though....

How many people will be watching just to see if Frank is playing? (probably me for example ;-) )


And how many of them were going to avoid watching it if at all possible before they heard Frank might, maybe be involved? (yep me again)

i've always been looking forward to this as I like Danny Boyle ... and I like Underworld who were a big part of this - so I believe.

Having ;) (maybe) Frank in it just makes it 100000 times more awesome!

If you're near a TV that has BBC 1, any not doing anything else, you might want to have a watch from about 8.20 onwards.
