Jimmy Page to perform at closing ceremony of Beijing Olympics

Recommended Posts

Well I guess some of the fireworks in the opening ceromony were pre recorded or computer graphics so I guess they might well of mimed the song as some of you say !! Though Page did a good job of sweating well while playing lol :)

OK so Jimmy wasn't live (it was the solo that really showed that - his left hand was nowhere near where it should have been) but isn't it great that out of all the possible people that could have been asked to perform in Beijing JP was picked and they picked a LZ song. That in itself speaks volumes for me and at least gives me a bit of faith that some people in a few postions of influence get it right. SS

No Robert required.

Lots of people could sing for J P

Maybe I overlooked it, but I've just gone through over thirty pages on this thread. Please provide the link for the post performance interview with JP. I saw the pre show interview with Jimmy, Leona and Becks. Thanks.

Great job by Jimmy. He was spot on even if it may been pre-recorded. Leona did an admirable job with the vocals.

I concur. I think that's the majority's feelings as well.

Even though it wasn't "live" which would have been great, it was still Jimmy playing and sounding great. It's just great to see him rejuvenated and clearly ready to get back to where he should be...on the stage :D

Stupid question, I'm sure, but can anyone give me a sense of when in today's Olympics broadcast Jimmy performs? The program just started about 30 minutes ago in the U.S. Eastern time zone, and they're playing basketball right now ...

Will the hand-off be near the end of the program, in the middle, or what? With my luck, I'm afraid I'll be out walking the dog when Jimmy comes on :o:lol:

Yeah, the closing ceremonies with volleyball and a couple of other things started to air at 7pm ET in the U.S. It ends at 10:30 pm with a highlight show to follow. I'm guessing the closing ceremonies to start airing around 8:15-8:30 (minutes from now). Jimmy around 10 pm or so probably, but I'd start watching no later than 9:30 just to be certain you don't miss it. I hope the American broadcasters don't talk over Jimmy's performance like those igornant French asshole announcers who didn't seem to give a shit about it. Totally irresponsible journalism IMHO. Agreed?

Should be 9.15 PM EST unless NBC did a nice edit job and interspersed non- closing ceremonial footage in their broadcast. I think USA is the only country in the world that does not air live broadcast of closing ceremonies

Awesome! Any chance to see Jimmy is great! I really like Leona Lewis. Also, very cool that London is hosting the 2012 Olympics! B)

I gotta agree with that. It was hokey but Jimmy looked great and ready for the next gun fight. :D

You look at him and think 'fuck, this man is the mayor of our capital' and then he talks and it's just genius. Where does he get it? :D

He gets so much ridicule, but I actually like him. Total nutter, but he's got personality.

Wiff waff :D
