PWL Hit Factory Live Gig In London Canceled: They Say It's Gonna Rain

Yesterday Kylie Minogue tweeted the above pic of herself while rehearsing with Jason Donovan for their PWL Hit Factory Live reunion, but this morning brought news that the entire fest had to be called off due weather conditions (and last weekend's Wireless Festival) making the Hyde Park  grounds in London unsafe.

Pete Waterman told the BBC the following:
"People have come from all over the world to make this happen. We're trying to work out what we can do. Police, parks and safety people have said it's completely unsafe at the moment. We saw the damage caused by the Wireless festival at the weekend, but we can't get lorries on to the site to dump bark and mulch on the ground. What can I say? We've had exceptional weather. If it's not safe, it's not safe and you can't control that."
As expected, the mood on the official PWL Facebook page of those who planned to attend the event reflects disappointment.

Hazell Dean, who was due to perform at Hit Factory Live — and who recorded the ironically-titled tune "They Say It's Gonna Rain" — passed this message along:
"Dear All. As you can imagine I am absolutely devastated.
I arrived for rehearsals earlier and was told the news by the guys from Dead Or Alive.
I don't know what else to say, as I only know as much as you which is what is reported on the BBC News website.
I'm sure PWL and Live Nation will make and announcement as soon as they can.
Hopefully with a rescheduled date.
Iam as gutted as you guys.
