Ed Sheeran Fans Mistake Pink Floyd Hit For New Song
Ed Sheeran fans mistook the Pink Floyd song he performed alongside Nick Mason from the band at the Olympic Games closing ceremony for a new song. Sheeran performed "Wish You Were Here" inside the Olympic Stadium last night, playing the song alongside Pink Floyd's Nick Mason, Genesis' Mike Rutherford and The Feeling's Richard Jones. However, not boasting the widest knowledge of Pink Floyd's back catalogue, some Sheeranites confused the track for a new single. Elsewhere at the closing ceremony, Liam Gallagher performed the Oasis classic "Wonderwall" with his Beady Eye bandmates and Muse performed their Olympic single "Survival". George Michael also made an appearance, performing his hit single "Freedom" as well as new track "White Light".
Thanks for the report to Gigwise.
