Kylie and Jason reunion washed out

Wednesday July 11, 2012

A concert that would have seen Kylie Minogue reunited on stage with Jason Donovan has been axed.

The Hit Factory show, celebrating the music of Pete Waterman, was cancelled with hours to go because of safety fears due to heavy rainfall in London's Hyde Park.

Kylie was set to join former Neighbours co-star Jason on stage for the first time in more than 20 years, for a performance of their hit Especially For You.

Promoters spent hours trying to get the site into a fit state after the ground was churned up by downpours and visitors at last weekend's Wireless concerts.

But the site was declared "unfit" on Wednesday morning.

"The potential risk to staff and music fans was too great for the event to go ahead," organisers said.

The show was due to feature many of the acts Pete catapulted to fame through his PWL record label - which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.

Kylie said: "I am so sorry to hear that the concert tomorrow had to be cancelled. I feel for all the fans who had bought tickets to this special event.

"Jason and I were rehearsed and excited to share this moment with everyone."
