Disappointed how there wasn't much in the end except Torch, fireworks and Paul McCartney. I stated up for 3 am for an endinh like the footstep fireworks in China.
I'm sure I read at the time that the footstep fireworks were a fake special effect for television. I may be wrong, it was four years ago.
I think McCartney was rubbish but everything else was spot on. The tribute to the bombing victims was really moving, apparently cut from American TV....a bit disrespectful really.
Apart from the ex Beatle the music was the highlight for me, I dug out my Arctic Monkey albums on the strength of it.
