Produced by Live Nation, Hit Factory Live will take place in London’s Hyde Park on 11 July, bringing some of the best pop acts of the 80s and 90s on stage together for the first time.

Other acts confirmed include Pepsi & Shirlie, 2 Unlimited, Sinitta and Sonia, with more to be announced closer to the date. Organisers also hinted at the possibility of a special duet "23 years in the making".

Pete Waterman said: "I’ve been saying no for years to a Hit Factory concert but now, 25 years on, the timing feels right. It’s time to celebrate the hit single and we have a tremendous line-up of our classic artists confirmed to play Hit Factory Live in Hyde Park on July 11."

A proportion of proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Cancer Research UK, and there will be a number of fundraising activities in the run up to, and on the day of, the show.
