The Industrial Revolution segment was the moment the Pandemonium Drummers appeared for the first time.
None of us expected to be drumming the same buckets two years later.

The Pandemonium Drummers were the 965 volunteer drummers who supported a dramatic soundtrack to the Pandemonium segment that saw one of the biggest live stage set changes in history.
Stephen's endless cheery optimism lifted everyone who met him. He made extraordinary things happen and will never be forgotten by those of us fortunate to have met him.When we return to Wembley Stadium this weekend, we will drum in memory of Stephen.
Rest now, Stephen. You taught us a great deal about life, and have inspired thousands to carry on your work.
