Paul Rodgers “Open” To Performing With Queen At Olympics
Paul Rodgers says he’d consider reteaming with Queen — especially for a special occasion. The rocker tells Billboard.com he’s heard speculation about the band possibly getting an invite to perform at the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. While he admits no one has “actually approached” him about it, he says he’d “be open to something like that.” Rodgers explains that he liked the partnership, which ran from 2005 until 2009, but just “didn’t want to do it forever.” But he says getting together for an event like the Olympics would be “ideal.”
A number of stars have been named as possible performers for the upcoming international sporting event. However, The Rolling Stones and The Who have denied that they would be involved in the special show, while Paul McCartney has said he’d be agreeable to participating. No acts have been confirmed as yet for the ceremony.
