Could Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr be joined on stage by the children of the other Beatles for a gig at the Olympics opening or closing ceremony?
The possibility comes at the end of a long chain of speculation by The Sun. First Macca teases an interviewer thus: “I hear there’s a rumour that I might be involved.” An ‘insider’ then provides additional, juicier details. “The organisers want The Beatles legend to appear alongside other big British acts…and they want Ringo on stage as well to make it extra special. There’s also the possibility that George Harrison and John Lennon could be represented by their kids.” (Note: Quote edited to remove The Sun’s shouty formatting.)
