BT is to headline sponsor a series of London Live events in Hyde Park, Trafalgar Square and Victoria Park. BT London Live will feature as part of the London 2012 celebrations, which will be free to join in, except for two opening and closing ceremony concerts that will be ticketed.

BT customers will have 48-hour priority access to purchase tickets to the concerts from 9am on February 22, and will be able to buy a maximum of six tickets for the concerts on July 27 and August 12.

The act for the BT London Live closing celebration concert in Hyde Park will be announced tomorrow (February 21) with further acts to be announced in the coming weeks.

Gavin Patterson, CEO, BT Retail, said, “London 2012 will not just be about sport – it’s also about people experiencing the amazing atmosphere the Games will bring to the capital. Through BT London Live we’ll give close to a million people a fantastic free experience this summer. Priority access is a great way to say thank you to our customers and employees and we’re delighted to offer this starting with the opening and closing ceremony celebration concerts. Everyone will remember where they were when British gold medals were won – it’s great that for many people, those memories will be of BT London Live.”
