KISS TO HEADLINE LONDON'S HARD ROCK CALLING AT NEW OLYMPIC PARK? From www.stereoboard.com
Are Live Nation on the verge of announcing one of the world's biggest bands, KISS, for a Hard Rock Calling headline performance at London's Olympic Park this summer?
At the end of last week, Live Nation announced they had secured London's Olympic Park and Stadium for future live music events. The Live Nation move to the Olympic Park marks the end of a 10-year deal with The Royal Parks. Last year, Live Nation had to deal with a number of complaints from local residents about the noise levels surrounding Hyde Park during events. You may recall Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney being "cut-off" after their show over-ran last summer. With the annual Wireless Festival and Hard Rock Calling - both of which were previously staged at London's Hyde Park - already confirmed for the brand new venue, glam-rock legends KISS are rumoured to be this year's headliners for the Hard Rock Calling event.
