Elton John set for 2012 Olympics performance

Elton John is planning for a special concert in London during the 2012 Olympic Games, The Sun has reported.

The pop star has also requested Muse to perform alongside him at the show. A source said: "Elton has never put on subtle live shows but he wants the Olympic gig to be even more overblown and spectacular than ever.

"He’s been a huge fan of Matt Bellamy’s band for years and is desperate to collaborate with them.

“A show during the London Olympics will be the ideal opportunity. And with Muse’s reputation as one of the best live groups in the world it’s bound to be special."

Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin have also been rumoured to involved with the opening/closing ceremonies of the 2012 Games.
