London's Party In The Park On Hold

Annual London concert Party In The Park has been put on hiatus for the second year running, because organisers fear the supergig has lost its attraction for fans.

British royal PRINCE CHARLES' charity the Prince's Trust and London radio station Capital FM have hosted the fundraising gig in the capital's Hyde Park since 1998, but gave the summer slot to the Live 8 gig last year (02JUL05).

Over the years, artists including SIR ELTON JOHN, BACKSTREET BOYS, BON JOVI, SHANIA TWAIN, CRAIG DAVID, NELLY FURTADO, DESTINY'S CHILD, WYCLEF JEAN, USHER, RICKY MARTIN and CHRISTINA AGUILERA have performed in front of 100,000 fans.

A Capital spokeswoman says, "We have had a great eight years with Party in the Park but it is time to move on. People want something different."

However, Prince's Trust chief executive MARTINA MILBURN is hopeful the concert will return in 2007, saying, "Party in the Park sold out every year and raised millions of pounds to help change young lives."
