It’s been reported today that veteran pop star Tony Hadley, who of course shot to fame in hit eighties band Spandau Ballet, has revealed that he would have liked to see One Direction perform at the opening ceremony of the Olympics.
Speaking to Absolute Radio, Tony explained, “If I’m honest I would have liked a really young band to have closed it.
“If you’ve got Sir Steve Redgrave handing over the torch to the youngsters, it would have been nice to have had One Direction.
“They’re our biggest export at the moment, pure pop.”
He said, “One Direction with the Royal Philharmonic, with about 100 singers in a choir, behind them.
“To me that would have been the new generation kind of thing.”
However it has of course been confirmed that among other stars, One Direction will perform live during the Olympics’ closing ceremony.
