Kylie’s golden touch
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.
