The group performed at the Closing Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics, running through a medley of hits that included “Wannabe” (natch) and “Spice Up Your Life.”
They arrived on the big stage in five separate black cabs, or hackney carriages.
A number of news reports had placed the group as the final act of the widely anticipated event, which had been billed as a grand celebration of British pop music. They were not the finale of the show, however, as Muse, Queen and a host of other acts followed their fun performance. The Who ended the evening with a strong set.
London’s boy band of the moment, One Direction, also performed, charming their way through “What Makes You Beautiful.” Russell Brand sang “I Am The Walrus,” Fatboy Slim DJ’d and John Lennon appeared in a video exclusively remastered by Yoko Ono. Lennon’s performance of “Imagine” was an inspired moment and a true highlight of the evening.
