The site has been declared "unfit" to host the special musical event with Hard Rock Calling 2012 still planning to go ahead.

The Hit Factory Live Concert, which was set to take place in London's Hyde Park tomorrow (11th July) evening, has been cancelled.

Stars such as Kylie Minogue, Steps and Rick Astley from the Stock Aitken Waterman era were set to take to the stage, however, it has been confirmed that the site is "unfit" to host such an event due to the adverse weather conditions which have hit the country recently.

"The decision was made following full consultation with all of the relevant authorities and the safety advisory group," read the official press release from partners Live Nation. "The safety of our customers, performers and production crew is of utmost importance and the decision was made unanimously. The potential risk to staff and music fans was too great for the event to go ahead."

CEO of Live Nation, John Probyn said everyone had been working extremely hard to get the site ready in time following this past weekend's Wireless Festival.

Anyone who purchased tickets for the event will be offered a refund and this weekend's Hard Rock Calling will still go ahead

Other concerts upcoming at the venue include Madonna's 'MDNA' UK tour show and the London Olympic Games opening concert - which are also all still scheduled to go ahead.
