CBC: Rush might play closing Olympics ceremony

Update: 11:00 p.m. - No Rush.


A report from CBC News lists Rush as one of the possible performers at the Closing Ceremony. After the Opening Ceremony rumors, I wouldn't bet on it.

Here's the quote from the CBC News story:

The closing of the Vancouver Olympics on Sunday is expected to be more light-hearted than the show that opened the Games on Feb. 12.

The big farewell celebration may even poke fun at Canada, according to Vancouver Organizing Committee head John Furlong.

Furlong promised some "pretty amazing Canadian talent" will make sure the party rocks.

Reports indicate Michael Bubl�, Diana Krall and rock band Rush may all perform at the closing, which gets underway at 5:30 p.m. local time.

Those names haven't been confirmed, but some features of the closing can be counted on -- the march of athletes into BC Place, the playing of the national anthem of Greece, the extinguishing of the Olympic flame.
