29 April 2012

Kylie Minogue, the Australian pop sensation and worldwide gay icon, is set to headline the BBC’s Proms In The Park concert this Septmember.

Minogue, who is celebrating her 25th year in the music industry, revealed in a statement that she is ‘delighted to be performing at one of the UK’s most outstanding nights of the musical calendar.

‘To sing in front of thousands of people whilst being accompanied by the legendary BBC Concert Orchestra in such a special year is truly a dream come true.’

The 43-year-old star, who recently finished her highly sought-after “Anti-Tour” consisting of rare tracks, demos, b-sides and a noticeable lack of backup dancers, will be upping the ante at her upcoming Hyde Parke gig.

Reports suggest Minogue will be performing orchestral versions of her biggest hits recorded in London’s Abbey Road Studios last year.

Amongst the songs to be re-interpreted for her 25th anniversary were On A Night Like This, All The Lovers and Finer Feelings.

Alongside the Aussie star, Il Divo and tenor Alfie Boe will also be taking part in the 17-year-old iconic celebration, due to be presented by BBC Radio 2’s Tony Blackburn and Sir Terry Wogan.

Speaking to press, Sir Terry said: ‘To have the Princess of Pop herself, Kylie Minogue, performing in Hyde Park promises to make the concert an unforgettable spectacle.’

The Proms In The Park is also a part of the London 2012 Festival and will take place on 8 Septmeber 2012.
