Thousand of music fans were set to fill Hyde Park tomorrow to see the likes of Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan at The Hit Factory Live concert.

Following the recent severe and unprecedented weather conditions across the country the site was declared unfit this morning to host the concert.

Live Nation and The Royal Parks consulted with all of the relevant authorities and the safety advisory group before making the decision.

Doubts about the site's condition were raised following last weekend's Wireless festival, which turned the park into a mud bath.  

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.” 

Steve Edwards, Hyde Park manager, said: “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.''
