Pete Waterman's Hit Factory Live concert cancelled
Peter Waterman's Hit Factory Live concert due to take place on Wednesday (July 11) has been cancelled following poor weather.
The event was due to take place at London's Hyde Park but the site has now been declared "unfit" after recent adverse weather.
The venue hosted the Wireless festival at the weekend but Hyde Park has not recovered in time.
John Probyn, Live Nation COO said: "The moment the Wireless Festival ended, we put in place a massive plan to prepare the site for tomorrow. Eight thousand cubic metres of wood chip is currently being put in place and over the past 24hours crews have started to make the site safe for our customers. Despite best efforts time has beaten us, but I want to reassure that Hard Rock Calling concerts with Soundgarden, Bruce Springsteen and Paul Simon, plus Madonna on 17 July and the BT London Live Opening Ceremony Celebration concert and the events will go ahead."
Hyde Park manager Steve Edwards meanwhile added: "Woodchip is being laid on the concert site as part of plans to ensure concert goers can be welcomed back as soon as possible. We are confident that the action being taken will enable Hard Rock Calling and the remainder of the summer concert series to go ahead as planned."
One of Hit Factory Live's main talking points was a planned duet between Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan.
