Pop diva Kylie Minogue is to headline the Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time concert in Hyde Park on Sunday 21 June.
The Australian pop siren has sold over 70 million records worldwide in a career spanning over 25 years, boasting the kind of success and longevity most performers only dream of. During her career she has clocked up 33 UK Top 10 singles, including seven #1 hits including ‘I Should Be So Lucky’, ‘Spinning Around’, ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’ and ‘All The Lovers.’
Kylie said: "I'm so excited to perform at Hyde Park this Summer. I have great memories of playing shows there and am looking forward to doing it all again. Given the amazing artists performing and that it will be the longest day of the year, I can't wait!"
Also taking to the stage on Sunday June 21st and performing live for the first time in 2015, will be the one and only Grace Jones. Since releasing her first single ‘I Need A Man’ in 1975, Grace has become one of music’s singular icons, known as much for her incredible outfits, on stage hula-hooping and larger than life character as she is for her ground-breaking club hits ‘Pull Up To The Bumper’, ‘Slave To The Rhythm’ and ‘Nightclubbing’. When Grace is around, anything can happen. She said: "I'll bring the Jekyll to Hyde Park"
Prepare for an unforgettable day of floor-filler hits with two queens of the club and the man who pioneered disco, performing tunes you just can’t get out of your head. With many more incredible hit-makers to be announced in the coming months, Your Disco Needs You!
Kylie is unquestionably one of the top pop entertainers on the planet, famed for her fabulous and extravagant live shows. She took her awesome Kiss Me Once tour around Europe last year, featuring glittering renditions of her heart thumping greatest hits. And she is once again causing palpitations on her latest collaboration with disco legend Giorgio Moroder. ‘Right Here, Right Now’ the first track to be released from his forthcoming album.
Liz Mullins director of events at The Royal Parks, said: "Since it began in 2013 Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park has become a firm favourite in the events calendar, bringing a diverse range of entertainment and the world’s biggest artists to this iconic park. From The Rolling Stones to Black Sabbath, Lionel Richie to Tom Jones, comedy nights and family days there has been something for everyone. We are looking forward to working with our partners AEG Live to once again bring this truly unique event to Hyde Park."
