Liam Gallagher Oasis to Perform at London 2012 Olympic closing ceremony

Oasis star Liam Gallagher is ready to take the stage at the London 2012 Olympic closing ceremony where he is going to perform a new version of the Oasis classic Wonderwall.

Initially the brother Neol was offer to perform but he turn downed the offer and then the opportunity was avail by Liam.

A source told the Sun: "A couple of months back the Olympic production team got in touch with Noel about playing his part in the closing ceremony. “Along with his manager, they thought long and hard about it. It was a big temptation, with 650million people expected to tune in on TV.

“But he knocked it back in the end — he has been on a great tour and he doesn’t really need to do it. The organisers asked Liam if he was game and he said yes.

“The Who are on the same bill, so he was well up for it. “The team wanted something quintessentially British — a real flag-waving, singalong moment to show the rest of the world what this country has produced. Oasis were exactly that and, whether it’s Noel or his brother Liam, they just wanted a bit of rock ’n’ roll in there.”
