So.. mixed reactions to say the very least it would appear is the general feeling of the nation after Sunday night’s closing ceremony. With performances from the likes of Muse, Liam Gallagher, The Spice Girls, The Kaiser Chiefs, Tho Who, Brian May, Ed Sheeran, Jessie J and many more the evening was certainly jam packed with enough to get us all talking but not everyone was as blown away with proceedings as designer and choreographer Stephen Daldry would have liked in fact reactions we’re entirely split.
And we really mean split. From “a numbing, disheartening disaster ….The biggest floating turd we ever did whiff.” – Strong words from NME’s Chris T, to The Times who dubbed it a “raucous, exuberant celebration of modern culture” and The Independent who tipped it’s hat to it’s “display of exuberant revelry” with one message: “Let’s dance.”
Not like us not to join in one way or another this time we’re genuinely torn somewhere between the two – Epic at points – Yes we’re talking about you Borris dancing to the Spice Girls – you little beauty and of course the fireworks were pretty easy on the eye, and yet then there was disaster that was George Michael plugging his new single and Russell Brand singing – WTF guys?
Whichever side of the fence you’ve fallen on we’re pretty sure you’ll agree after those glorious few days with a pint glued to one hand we were left in dyer need of monday OFF. Is it just us or should that have been a bank holiday?
Heres a reminder of that special moment showing we’re pretty dam good with explosives.
