The rock band have given further hints that they are involved in Sunday's closing ceremony show.

Muse have seemingly confirmed their involvement in this weekend's London 2012 Olympic Games closing ceremony, after posted a picture of them rehearsing alongside several colourfully clad performers.

The 'Supermassive Black Hole' trio were reported by the NME as confirming their involvement in the ceremony this week, after recording their single 'Survival' as one of the official Olympic Games songs.

"Warming up…," Muse tweeted this afternoon (9th August) alongside a picture of singer Matt Bellamy playing guitar while marching in front of a group of musicians dressed in gold uniforms, each with a large drum suspended over the heads on stilts.

Alongside Muse, both Ed Sheeran and George Michael have openly confirmed their involvement in the Olympic Games closing ceremony this Sunday (12th August), although the show's organisers have refused to acknowledge or deny the claims.

The likes of One Direction, The Spice Girls, Take That, Kate Bush, The Pet Shop Boys, Pink Floyd and The Who have all also been strongly linked to the highly anticipated show, which will bring London 2012 to a close with a celebration of British music, organised by music director David Arnold.

The closing ceremony is said to involve 4,100 performers in total, and will culminate in the extinguishing of the Olympic cauldron and the official handing over of the flame to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, where the 2016 Olympic Games will take place.

Muse are currently preparing to launch their latest album 'The 2nd Law', the follow-up to 2009's 'The Resistance', which is due out on 1st October.
