Paul McCartney has confirmed an Olympic-sized rumor, saying he’ll be the closing act at the London 2012 opening ceremony.
Earlier this year the former Beatle disclosed that he was in talks to play a role in the celebrations.
On Monday, he confirmed: “I’ve been booked.”
He told BBC radio station 5 Live that he would be “closing the opening” of the games.

The Olympic Games take place July 27 to Aug. 12.

Sooo excited for the London Olympics. I’m really looking forward to seeing what Danny Boyle has in store for the world! Danny Boyle is the nicest man and so passionate. What director isn’t though? I interviewed Danny Boyle for Slumdog Millionaire. I was only allotted a 1/2hr for the interview but he gave me 1 hr and 15 minutes because he wanted to make sure all my questions were answered. What a great guy! Who can say that they’ve interview 2 Olympic directors? Zhang Yimou (Beijing Olympic director and Danny Boyle. I’m such a lucky girl!
