Can anyone confirm the story that the opening of the Shard has been put back until after the Olympics?

The 'inauguration' is going ahead next week but the building won't be completed.

Can anyone clarify what time exactly the 'show' will begin and what will we see? Presumably fireworks, lights, etc.?

Well done Scott77 - this is great. And a perfect choice of accompanying soundtrack

Thanks for that, Scott77 - what a super video. I love all the different skys/colours. It seems like yesterday that it started. No doubt it will feel the same when they finish the station in 2018.........:p
