In Stourbridge a near 100 piece Ukulele band will be performing their own renditions of Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" to mark the end of the games. Hundreds of outdoor community concerts will be staged across the UK for the the event as the song is performed by all bands simultaniosly at 2pm on the day.
Bandstand have been gathering voluteers to perform at outdoor performance spaces across the Uk and locations all over the the region including Birmingham, Burton-upon-Trent, Telford, Walsall and Leek.
Coldplay’s Chris Martin said: ‘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.’
The Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: ‘Millions of people across the capital have already enjoyed an astonishing variety of music, drama, and spectacle from around the world and the Bandstand Marathon renditions of Coldplay’s instantly-recognisable megahit Viva la Vida will be fittingly upbeat coda to the London 2012 celebrations. We want as many Londoners as possible to take part and after the Games are over I hope many more will be encouraged to bring the sound of beautiful music to their local communities. Long live life indeed!
