A projection of a giant Agitos on the White Cliffs of Dover will herald 100 days to go until a spectacular Paralympic Games, the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) are delighted to announce multi award winning band Coldplay as the star act of the Paralympic Closing Ceremony.
Remaining tickets for the Paralympic Games are on sale from 11am to mark this milestone. With the intention to allow as many people as possible to get the chance to attend the Games, over one million tickets are on sale following an unprecedented one million ticket sales last year.
Tickets are available at www.tickets.london2012.com or via telephone on 0844 847 2012.
Seb Coe, LOCOG Chair, said: 'The London 2012 Paralympic Games are going to be spectacular. I am delighted that Coldplay are going to be helping us celebrate not only the end of a fantastic Paralympic Games, but also the end of a seven year journey.
'With tickets back on sale I can guarantee that whatever ticket you decide to go for that Paralympic sport will leave a deep and lasting impression on you. The athletes involved in the Paralympic Games are incredible sportsmen and women and I urge everyone to take this chance to be there and to form memories that will last a lifetime.'
Prices start at just £10 (£5 for young people and seniors) and day pass tickets exclusive to the Paralympic Games present the chance to see up to five sports in the Olympic Park or ExCeL on just one £10 ticket.
Tickets will be made available for both Ceremonies and across all sports, including good availability for Paralympic Athletics in the Olympic Stadium which has been the biggest selling ticket so far, and a limited number for Track Cycling in the Velodrome which quickly sold out last year.
The London 2012 Paralympic Games Closing Ceremony, called 'Festival of Flame' and starting at 8.30pm on 9 September, will see Coldplay, one of the world’s best selling music acts, take to the stage and perform a live and one off concert in the Olympic Stadium, broadcast to an estimated worldwide audience of 750 million.
With over 55 million records sold worldwide, number one albums in more than 35 countries and winners of seven Brit Awards and seven Grammy Awards, Coldplay are one of Britain’s best-loved bands around the world. Their special performance will mark the closing of the Paralympic Games and the last night of the London 2012 Games.
The band have been working with Closing Ceremonies Artistic Director, Kim Gavin, and Coldplay’s live show co-designer and Paralympic Games Closing Ceremony designer, Misty Buckley, to play a set of their most iconic music alongside a cast of almost 2,000 in the Olympic Stadium. Coldplay's music will soundtrack a celebration of Britain's rich culture of festivals – from the ancient to the modern day.
