‘The Hit Factory Live’ has been rescheduled for December.
The concert – which had been due to take place in London’s Hyde Park over the summer but was axed due to safety fears following heavy rain – has been renamed ‘Hit Factory Live – Christmas Cracker’ and will now be staged at The O2 in London on December 21.
Steps, Rick Astley, Sinitta, Dead of Alive, Brother Beyond, Sonia, Pepsi & Shirlie and Bananarama are among the acts performing at the show – which is being staged to mark songwriting and production team Stock, Aitkin and Waterman’s years of creating chart success – but it is unclear if Kylie Minogue will join Jason Donovan to perform their duet ‘Especially For You’.
Pete Waterman said: ‘’We were devastated when Hyde Park’s ‘Hit Factory Live’ had to be cancelled but now the party is back on with an epic line-up of our classic artists.’’
While Kylie hasn’t confirmed her appearance yet, Jason previously hinted the duet would go ahead if the concert was rescheduled.
After the gig was cancelled in July, he tweeted:
’’Everyone who was heading to Hyde Park tomorrow ….. What can I say …. we are all extremely disappointed.
’’We appreciate that you all must be extremely frustrated but please bear in mind that this decision was not taken Lightly.
‘’Well… you never know, I’m sure we’ll get another chance !! Fingers crossed. (sic)’’
Tickets for the gig go on sale on Friday (19.10.12).
