Kylie Minogue on Glastonbury 2019 plans: "I'm bound to cry"

Kylie Minogue has been discussing her plans for her upcoming performance at Glastonbury 2019.

Minogue has been handed the coveted Sunday teatime ‘legend’ slot at Glastonbury and the iconic festival slot usually draws the biggest crowds of the weekend. Over the years, the Pyramid Stage has seen the likes of Lionel Richie and Dolly Parton take the lead in this role.

The performance is likely to be an emotional one with Minogue finally making her Glastonbury debut after cancelling her 2005 headline slot due to her breast cancer diagnosis. That year Basement Jaxx replaced her as headliner and, in tribute, performed a cover version of ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’.

“I’m bound to cry – it’s going to happen,” she told Sunday Times Style when thinking about the summer show. “When I was meant to be there, I watched from Australia. I was dealing with much bigger things back then, but when I’m there it will take me back to when I wasn’t there. But I’ll work through that.”

Festival organiser Emily Eavis said she was “delighted” with the news that Kylie will perform at the festival, adding: “We cannot wait.”
