Post-Olympic interest in stadium is music to the ears
One of the biggest questions hanging over London 2012 is what will happen to the Olympic Park AFTER the Games?
I've learned that a bidding war could be under way beween two giants in the music industry looking to turn the Olympic Park into one of the world's most sought after music venues.
We knew that AEG, which runs the O2 and is the owner of the world's most profitable sports and entertainment venues, was in the market to take over the main stadium but I've learned that a company called Live Nation is also interested.
This is a significant development because Live Nation is the world's biggest concert producer.
It's signed up major artists like Madonna, U2 and Lady Gaga but more importantly it runs about 140 venues around the world and puts on 20,000 concerts each year.
I've learned Live Nation is not just interested in taking over the main stadium it also wants to take over the handball indoor arena which would allow it to put concerts on, all year round.
This would turn this part of London into a music mecca.
What London 2012 wants to do is get independent companies coming here and running these venues.
The danger is if you don't there's a drain on the taxpayer so it's manna from heaven to have two major international independent entertainment companies saying they're interested.
So, it may be that the solution is that an entertainment company comes in, takes over the whole park and turns into a fascinating place that people want to go to long after the Games have ended.
