Concert kicks off Games celebration

Tens of thousands of people began their Olympic celebrations at a huge concert in London's Hyde Park to coincide with the opening ceremony.

The extravaganza featuring acts representing the nations of the UK kicked off with Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini, with chart-topping act Snow Patrol set to round off the event.

Also on the bill are Duran Duran - flying the flag for England - as well as Welsh act Stereophonics.

Fans paid £55 a head to watch the show which includes a live relay to the Olympic Stadium, allowing them to watch the ceremony unfold.

Organisers have been given a special extension to allow Snow Patrol, from Northern Ireland, to perform late. It comes after the plug was pulled on Bruce Springsteen at a show in the park earlier this month when he overran a 10.30pm curfew.

The Opening Ceremony Celebration Concert is part of a series of BT London Live shows being staged for the duration of the Games, which will be rounded off with a headline appearance by Blur when the Games come to a close on August 12.

Show-opener Nutini took the stage nearly 90 minutes before the opening ceremony was due to begin. Opening with hit single 10/10, he was greeted by screams and flag-waving from fans clutching flags from the home nations.

He went on to perform Jenny Don't Be Hasty, going on to tell fans: "Thank you, thank you. I want to take this opportunity to play a couple of new songs, I hope you dig them."
