Ronson: Macca must play at Olympics

Mark Ronson has called for Sir Paul McCartney to perform at the London 2012 closing ceremony.

The Grammy award-winning producer joined singer Katy B at Brunel University in west London as they carried the Olympic Torch on day 67 of the relay.

Both music stars were nominated to carry the flame after they produced an anthem for the Games, sampling the sounds made by international athletes training for London 2012.

After running with the flame, Mark revealed he has been working with Sir Paul and said the former Beatles star would be the perfect choice to represent Britain on stage at the Olympic closing ceremony.

Mark said: "I think people like Paul McCartney are ingrained in the history of British music.

"We've been working together a little bit. When he tells you to show up, you just show up.

"I think that the other concerts like Blur and The Specials are great, and with Dizzee and us at Hyde Park on Thursday, London is such a centre for a music. It's a good way to celebrate that."

Recalling that he was nicknamed "Wrong-way Ronson" at school after going the wrong way in a relay race, Mark joked: "This entire week I was doing four and five kilometre runs in the mountains of Corsica so I was sort of ready.

"It's pretty emotional with so many people out. London is such a spoilt city in a way because there is so much in the way of culture. But once the Olympics starts to descend on the city you want to be part of that emotion."

Mark and Katy B will perform their anthem at a concert to mark the arrival of the Olympic torch in London's Hyde Park on Thursday, with a line-up including Dizzee Rascal and Rizzle Kicks.
