The ill fated Pete Waterman organised Hit Factory event due to be held in London's Hyde Park on Wednesday 11th July 2012, which was cancelled because of the condition of the Park after Wireless Festival has been re-scheduled and will now be a 'Christmas Cracker' held at London's O2 arena on Friday 21st December.
The show will celebrate the Stock Aitken Waterman songwriting and production team, and Pete Waterman's PWL label and feature a line-up of pop acts that came to define an era in British music history.
Stock Aitken Waterman scored an unrivalled run of global hits in the 80s and 90s and are now acknowledged as one of the most successful songwriting and producing partnerships of all time. 2012 also marks the 25th anniversary of PWL Records, the legendary label originally set up as home for many Hit Factory artists.
The line-up of classic artists, performing on the same bill for the very first time, from the PWL Hit Factory includes Steps, Rick Astley, Bananarama, Jason Donovan, Dead Or Alive, Pepsi & Shirlie, Princess Sinitta, Hazell Dean, Sonia, 2 Unlimited, Lonnie Gordon, and Brother Beyond.
Pete Waterman said, "Hit Factory Live - Christmas Cracker will be the biggest and best celebration of SAW and PWL ever. This will be the perfect party to commemorate our 25th anniversary. 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!"
Tickets are priced at Tickets £49.50 and will go on sale at 9am on Friday 19th October, and eGigs will have links to buy them then. A proportion of proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
