Kylie’s golden touch

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Front Page -

AUS­TRALIA’S favourite pop princess Kylie Minogue will add her golden touch to South Perth’s fore­shore green early next year.

Minogue will head­line the A Day on The Green fes­ti­val at Sir James Mitchell Park on March 9 as part of her Golden tour, which marks her first visit to Perth since 2015.

The South Perth show will be the 50-year-old’s first out­door head­line con­cert in Aus­tralia but it is not the first time the fore­shore has played host to mu­sic’s big names.

Sting and Paul Si­mon per­formed there twice in 2015, fol­low­ing on from Joe Cocker and Ge­orge Thoro­good head­lin­ing in 2011.

The City of South Perth was pleased Mellen Events, which is man­ag­ing the event, had cho­sen to bring A Day on the Green back.

“Unique events such as this one bring thou­sands of peo­ple to our City who might oth­er­wise not visit,” a spokes­woman said.

“They help to show­case the beau­ti­ful Swan River fore­shore and of­fer lo­cal busi­nesses fan­tas­tic ex­po­sure and the op­por­tu­nity to reach many more peo­ple in our com­mu­nity and from greater Perth.”

Golden is Minogue’s 14th al­bum and her sixth chart­top­per in the UK, the coun­try she has called home since the early 1990s.

Pro­mot­ers de­scribe the Golden tour as “a nar­ra­tive con­nect­ing all Kylie’s hits into one glo­ri­ous story”.

Join­ing the pop icon at South Perth will be her close friend, Scis­sor Sis­ters front­man Jake Shears, and Aus­tralian singer-song­writer Hatchie.

Tick­ets to the out­door show, which start at $124.90 but rise to nearly $400 for the best seats, are on sale to­day.
