Coldplay's 'Viva La Vida' For Special Bandstand Marathon Event To End Paralympics 2012

28 August 2012, 11:46

The British band's hit single will be performed around the country as part of a unique event next month.

Coldplay's single 'Viva La Vida' is to be performed at hundreds of outdoor bandstands to mark the end of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

The 'Charlie Brown' stars have endorsed musicians around the country to offer their own rendition of the song to be played in unison at 2pm on the 9th September to bring the sporting extravaganza to a close.

Front man Chris Martin said it should be a "great moment" when the performances all take place, including on the bandstand outside the Olympic Stadium.

"It's a great honour for us to be part of the celebrations for the Paralympic Games and it should be a great moment when the bandstands of Great Britain strike up in unison," he said.

Hundreds of outdoor community concerts will take place on the same afternoon before the official closing ceremony kicks off – with the group headlining the event.

Coldplay will perform some of their biggest hits on the day with around 2,000 performers expected to join them.

It has also been reported that Rihanna will be appearing at the ceremony to perform their collaborative hit 'Princess Of China' on the night.
