Just because MTV doesn’t play music anymore doesn’t mean there’s not tons of live music on television these days. Consider our weekly feature “Live Wire,” your guide to performances, concerts and rock star appearances on the tube. All times are ET.

Live Wire Spotlight – XXX Summer Olympics Closing Ceremony (8 p.m. Sunday, August 12, NBC)

The London games are sure to go out with a bang at this grand finale. Expect to see plenty of British pop and rock stars, including The Who, Muse, the Spice Girls and Liam Gallagher. Plus, there’s bound to be some surprises. For instance, it has been rumored that the surviving members of Pink Floyd will reunite for a performance at the ceremony. “Wish You Were Here,” indeed.
