Olympic Music to Be Immediately Released [VIDEO]

The Opening Ceremonies for the London Olympic Games will take place on Friday and some big names will be performing both to start and  end the games and you will be able to buy it immediately. Here’s the run down.

Music Week is reporting that there will be a sound track for each of the different events and immediately following the event, you can go and buy the music for that event.

The music from Friday’s Opening Ceremonies will be available at midnight on Saturday and the music from the Closing Ceremonies will be available August 12. There’s a lot of secrecy and Universal Music Group is not saying exactly who will be included on the sound tracks but they are working closely with the International Olympic Committee to make sure it’s the best of the best and to make sure that everything is official and the money goes to the right places.

Most of the music will be performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, but there are a couple of pretty big names on the bill for both the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Paul McCartney will be part of the finale on July 27 and as the Games come to a close, The Who will help hand off the torch August 12 to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympics.

In the mean time, enjoy this video of Jimmy Page helping to hand over the Olympics to London as he and British songstress Leona Lewis perform Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love.
