Still have to get used to calling Harry "Henry", but agree with you - he'll so totally rock Rio!

It's OK Susan, I'm in a good mood, you understand...

Now, The WHo...
"Won't Get Fooled Again?"
but I suppose it will be "Pinball Wizard", yet AGAIN.

"Won't Get Fooled" or "Baba O'Reilly" with that distinctive and cutting synthesiser intro would sound great. One can dream.

I was thinking the same thing: very smooth transition.

They are due to perform 2 songs and then sing 'all together' with the audience joining in with a 'famous song'.

Thought the Brazilians would have more skin on display like at Carnival, but perhaps they do not want to offend some more sensitive cultures. Guess we will have to wait for 2016.

It may be as simple as turning the gas knob down slowly until it's off, ie no big effect, just a gentle shutdown and mega fireworks to follow.
