Paul McCartney will sing Hey Jude at the Olympics
Beatle fans from around the world should definitely tune in to the coverage of the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics on July 27 2012.
Paul McCartney will close the ceremony with a rendition of that old-time favourite Beatles song "Hey Jude", supported by 60,000 spectators.
Around 1,000,000,000 (yes, that's one billion) viewers are expected to tune in to Danny Boyle's £27,000,000 extravaganza.
Real fans had already known that Hey Jude would be played, since Sir Paul refused to play the song at Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee party.
But Paul McCartney will not be the only Beatle-related topic at the ceremony, because Danny Boyle plans to recreate the history of Britain, which will include performers dressed in Sgt.Pepper's uniforms.
