London, Jan 23 (ANI): Olympic organisers are hoping for a coup of sorts by planning the biggest music event in music history with twelve days of concerts during the games.
While it has been revealed that the musical extravaganza could see Madonna, Paul McCartney, and the Rolling Stones headlining; the organizers are also hoping to see Led Zepplin and the Spice Girls reformed for the events, the Daily Mail reported.
It is also hoped that Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder, Pink Floyd, Take That and Simon and Garfunkel would perform during the games in July.
Charities are expected to benefit from the concerts, which will be promoted by the Live Nation entertainment company.
"Everything is being done to make sure this will be the biggest music extravaganza ever," People magazine quoted a source as saying.
"It is going to be huge. The hope is that the organisers can persuade some of the most successful and popular music acts ever to perform.
"Led Zepplin are at the top of the list. If they will re-form then it will be a massive coup for London and the Olympics.
"The idea behind the project is that artists from across the world will come together to celebrate the games.
"Pink Floyd coming back together would be huge. It would be the most exciting event to happen to London in a long time," the source added.
More than one million tickets will go on sale for the shows, which will be held at Hyde Park and Victoria Park in Hackney, east London.
The first show is to kick off on July 28, the night after the opening ceremony.
They will run for a further 11 nights until the closing ceremony on August 12, when the Olympic torch will be handed over to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
At the farewell ceremony in Beijing in 2008, Led Zepplin's Jimmy Page performed Whole Lotta Love on top of an iconic double decker bus as Leona Lewis sang.
Organisers are apparently going to approach, Page's band mate Robert Plant to join him for this year's spectacular. (ANI)
