London - With less than 24 hours to go until the London Olympics opening ceremony, tickets to the biggest show in town are still available - for a price.

The Danny Boyle-directed opening ceremony cost £27m to produce and is expected to draw an estimated global television audience of 1 billion.

Olympic organisers confirmed late on Thursday that the extravaganza has not sold out, saying that tickets are still on sale in the two highest price categories. Available tickets cost £2 012 or £1 600 apiece, organisers said.

Organisers would not say exactly how many tickets remain on sale, describing the quantity as "a few".

But The Guardian reported that a telephone ticket salesman told the newspaper that tickets are still available in groups of up to four.
