Big Gig For Bournemouth Choreographer

The Bournemouth-born choreographer behind Take That's successful comeback live shows will be in charge of the closing ceremonies at the London 2012 Games, organisers have announced.

Choreographer and creative director Kim Gavin, who masterminded Take That's live performances on the Circus Tour, is the artistic director for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Gavin, who also choreographed and directed the Concert for Diana and the Help the Heroes Concert, said he was “really excited'' about his new job but is still figuring out the content of the showpiece finales. No decisions have been made including which famous faces might be taking part.

His friend Take That's Gary Barlow said: “Me and the guys are thrilled that Kim has been asked to create the closing ceremony.

“We know with him in charge it's going to be one great celebration for the whole country. We're very proud of our live shows and Kim has always been at the very heart of their creation.

“We wish him all the success in the world and before you ask, no, he hasn't asked us to be in the show - yet!”

London 2012 chairman Lord Coe said the ceremonies “are now certainly in the best possible hands”.
