Gig Guides, Music Concert Tickets at Livemusic.fm

 

We were walking through Hyde Park just the other day and it is no understatement when we say that it is a wood chip nightmare in certain places. London's signature green space has been reduced to a dark brown mush as a result of Livenation's summer soirees in the park, so it was no surprise when the ticketing behemoth announced that their annual parties in the park were coming to an end as of summer 2012. 
 
Not that we're knocking the parties whatsoever. Some legendary events have been hosted in that park; Kings Of Leon, Blur and Pulp gigs spring to mind, as do the annual Wireless and Hard Rock Calling festivals. There is no disputing the levels of fun laid on in central London by Livenation, it's just, there were always question marks surrounding the longevity of the park as a venue.
 
LIVENATION FIND NEW SUMMER HOME AT OLYMPIC PARK
Not one to give in on such a good thing, Livenation has confirmed that the hunt for a new space to hold the annual summer festivities is over. After extensive talks between Livenation and the London Legacy Development Corporation, the Olympic Park complex in Stratford is set to re-open its doors for the first time since the sporting spectacle came to an end. The North Park of the huge complex will now host both Wireless Festival and Hard Rock Calling this summer in what can only be described as a major coup by the world's biggest live music company.
 
Speaking on the deal, London mayor Boris Johnson said...
 
"Our vision for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has always been as a destination for world class sport as well as major cultural and leisure events." He continued, "The confidence shown by one of the world's leading live entertainment promoters to relocate two of its biggest music festivals from the centre of the capital is a ringing endorsement of out legacy plans."
 
GREAT NEWS NO?
 
No headliners have been announced yet, but rest assured, we will keep you up to speed with developments.
