London 2012 adds to closing ceremony team

A creative influence behind Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball tour and

the man who composes the music for the James Bond movies have

joined the team in charge of the closing ceremony for the 2012

London Olympics.

Es Devlin has been appointed designer. She has worked on tours

for Lady Gaga, Muse, Kanye West, Take That and Pet Shop Boys.

Music director David Arnold composed the scores for the most

recent Bond movies and has written songs for George Michael, Iggy

Pop and Bjork.

They will work with artistic director Kim Gavin. He

choreographed and directed the Concert for Diana in 2007 on the

10th anniversary of the princess’ death.

The same team, led by executive producer Stephen Daldry, will

also be in charge of the Paralympic closing ceremony.
