London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay Finale – Hyde Park, London

On 26th July, my family and I travelled to Hyde Park for the concert to celebrate the end of the Olympic Torch Relay.

The sun was shining and it was a lovely day – great weather for a concert in a park!

The atmosphere at the concert was great – most audience members were families and the air was very celebratory.

All of the artists performed well and the acoustics were good.

My highlight of the day was the performance by You Me At Six’s. They performed Loverboy (the lead single from Sinners Never Sleep), Reckless and Underdog.

All the songs were performed brilliantly, and the audience’s reaction was surprising to me as I didn’t realise how many “Sixers” were in the crowd.

Frontman, Josh Franceschi got the crowd going and seemed quite genuinely surprised when he realised how many people knew of the band.

The only downside was that they only performed three songs.

Rizzle Kicks also performed well, they performed their best known songs as well as a new single – this was my third time seeing them live and I am always impressed! They are always so enthusiastic and also hyper – especially in their dancing.

All in all a wonderful day and a great experience of the Olympics!

  1. I went to the concert too – it was an exciting time to visit London and the concert was great! You forgot to mention the arrival of the Olympic torch and the crowd’s reaction to Boris Johnson!!!
