Rock legends AC/DC will be the first band to perform at the former Olympic Stadium.

The arena at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford is currently undergoing major works that will be completed by next year.

The concert on June 4 will be the first major event in the stadium after works - which began in 2013 - are finished.

The stadium is being turned into a multi-use, year-round venue, which will host West Ham as the anchor tenants, but also welcome a series of other groups and events.

Once complete the venue will have one of the largest roofs of its kind in the world, a community track, innovative retractable seating, spectator and hospitality facilities and external landscaping.

The stadium's chief executive Linda Lennon CBE said: “Having the legends of rock, AC/DC, perform the first major concert in this world-class venue will be a spectacular way for the stadium to start its new life.

“This summer has already demonstrated what a great venue the stadium will be and next summer it will only go from strength to strength.”

The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) - the Government body that is in charge of the venue -was keen to keep it for part-public use, but have taken on West Ham football club as anchor tenants.

West Ham and the LLDC recently came under fire after negotiating a 99-year lease that some complained will see taxpayers footing the bill for running costs.

The Information Commissioner told the organisation in September it must publish the agreement without redactions - but the LLDC are currently appealing.

An LLDC spokesman said: “We are lodging an appeal against the Information Commissioner’s judgment. This follows careful consideration, informed by legal advice, and is limited to a smaller number of redactions.

“The appeal relates only to information which if released could significantly reduce the level of financial return to the taxpayer as it would undermine negotiations with future users of the stadium and other partners.

“We have listened to the Commissioner’s comments and as a public body are committed to maximising transparency. As a result we will shortly publish more details of the agreement with West Ham United in all areas that fall outside the scope of our appeal. ”
