The 'Lego House' singer admits he "might" be playing the event with a "big rock band".

Ed Sheeran has hinted that he could be set to perform at the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony event alongside legendary rockers The Who.

The 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' star told MTV that he has been frequently asked to not mention his possible appearance but refused to deny the rumours.

"I was told not to say anything about that and then as soon as I was told not to say anything about that it was in the Daily Mail the next day. It was a bit odd," he confessed. "The closing ceremony, there were rumors I am playing the closing ceremony. Those rumors may or may not be true."

The Who have been one of the strongest names linked with the ceremony since reports first emerged earlier this year and Ed revealed he "may or may not" be appearing alongside a famous rock band.

"If I was to play the closing ceremony, I might be playing with quite a big rock band and I might be playing one of their most famous hits," he revealed. "Might be. And if I was doing that, it would feel quite fun, I think. And it would be quite a moment for me. But that's if I was doing it."

Other stars expected to appear at the event  on 12th August include the likes of One Direction, Tinie Tempah and George Michael.

The BRIT award winning star is currently on tour in Australia and will perform in Brisbane this evening (31st July).

Ed is also currently working on his new album and the follow up to the hugely successful '+' and has written tracks for inclusion on One Direction's upcoming second record.
