its goodbyes and show the world that it knows a thing or two about throwing a great party.
Tiny ballet dancers, singing schoolkids and a sea of volunteers will take centre stage.
They are expected to be joined by some of Australia’s biggest pop stars, including Guy Sebastian, Dami Im, The Veronicas, Amy Shark and Samantha Jade.
Yothu Yindi and the Treaty Project and Anthony Callea are also expected to be involved in the closing party.
Six dance schools will take part in the spectacle, along with a choir made up of singers from nine Gold Coast high schools.
The closing ceremony is the less formal of the two events at both Commonwealth and Olympic Games meets. The opening ceremony alone was to reach a global broadcast of more than 1.5 billion people.
Iconic singer Jimmy Barnes will be on the Gold Coast for a show at The Star but is not believed to be involved in the closing ceremony.
But don’t rule out a rumoured surprise appearance by Midnight Oil frontman Peter Garrett as part of tomorrow’s finale.
From 7.30pm tomorrow at Carrara Stadium
Varies depending on seating
st what promises to be an emotional, fun and dazzling closing ceremony.
