Glastonbury calling?

Kylie Minogue has announced a summer series of open-air shows for 2019 that will see her playing some of the UK’s most iconic outdoor venues.

The Aussie pop queen is set to play two nights at London’s Hampton Court Palace Festival on June 20 and 21, before headlining Nocturne Live Festival at Woodstock’s Blenheim Palace on June 23.

Kylie will then perform at the Eden Project in St. Austell on June 2, before visiting Manchester’s Castleford Bowl on July 11, Edinburgh Castle on July 14. She will then bring the string of dates to a close at Scarborough’s Open Air Theatre on August 1; with “more dates to be announced soon”.

Tickets go on sale from 9am on November 16th and you can buy them HERE.

All eyes are currently on the Princess of Pop in anticipation for a Glastonbury Legends slot announcement. As it was recently rumoured that Kylie could be set to play Glastonbury in 2019, 14 years after she was forced to pull out of topping the bill over a decade ago.

Earlier this year, festival curator Emily Eavis revealed that the traditional Sunday tea-time legends slot often thought of as the “fourth headliner” would be filled by somebody female and “not British” in 2019.

The 50-year-old superstar was set to headline the iconic festival and take to the Pyramid Stage on the Sunday night back in 2005 but had to cancel her performance so she could undergo treatment for breast cancer.

UK dance music duo Basement Jaxx was subsequently drafted in to replace the Australian singer.

Minogue later made her debut on the Pyramid Stage with a guest appearance during US group Scissor Sisters’ set in Glastonbury 2010.

When asked by the Press Association if she would like to be offered another chance to close the night at next year’s festival, Minogue said: “When I was supposed to do it I think I would have been the first solo female to headline in however many years it was, so I was really proud of that at that time.

“Obviously it didn’t happen. So yes, it would be amazing and very emotional to be standing there and doing what I didn’t get to do all those years ago, for sure.”

Although Kylie has yet to be officially confirmed, a Glastonbury insider recently told The Sun that: “Kylie had to pull out of Glastonbury in 2005 just a month before she was due to appear so this performance will be a very emotional and poignant moment for her.

“She jumped at the opportunity to appear next year and it is the perfect way to celebrate her career.”
