The reformed Manchester band performed an exclusive show hosted by adidas Underground to celebrate the Olympics in a front of star-studded audience which included the heroic duo, other athletes and numerous stars.
Before the band played 'Something's Burning', Ian said: ''We've got the queen of England Jessica Ennis and the king of England Bradley Wiggins here. And our musical heroes, you don't know who that is right?''
The band - also comprised of bassist Gary 'Mani' Mounfield, guitarist John Squire and drummer Alan 'Reni' Wren - took to the stage just before midnight at the east London venue which is located just miles from the Olympic Park.
As the four-piece walked on, Ian joked: ''Sorry we're late, we were having a shoot out backstage.''
The group then played a phenomenal greatest hits set which included 'I Wanna be Adored', 'Waterfall', 'Fools Gold', 'Love Spreads' and 'This Is One'.
They closed the gig with a rousing rendition of 'I Am the Resurrection' as athletes, celebrities and competition winning fans all danced wildly.
