We’re sure that Sydney’s still reeling from having the one and only Cher perform at the Mardi Gras parade in Sydney earlier this year, but we’re starting to get the feeling that next year could be just as big and fabulous!!

Kyle and Jackie O were speaking with Aussie icon Kylie Minogue this morning about her latest album and upcoming tour Down Under when Jackie noticed something.

The dates that Kylie is here in Australia match up with the dates for Mardi Gras in March 2019! And so of course, Jackie had to ask whether this meant anything.

Could Kylie Minogue Be Performing At Mardi Gras Sydney In 2019?

“You’re going to be here I think, well your first concert is three days before Mardi Gras,” said Jackie. “Would you do anything for Mardi Gras? Because you know, they’d love you to.”

Umm YES PLEASE! Of course we would absolutely LOVE that! In case you didn’t now, the ‘Spinning Around’ singer will perform her first show in Sydney on March 5 while the Mardi Gras Parade and Party takes place here on March 2. 


Kylie was a little bit coy with her answer though. While she didn’t say, ‘Yes, it’s definitely planned’ she didn’t actually say no either. In fact she seemed open to the idea.

“I know, the pressure! I actually don’t know. That’s the honest truth,” she admitted. “I don’t know.”

Kyle seemed to think it was too much of a coincidence that Kylie’s tour dates line up with the annual Gay and Lesbian festival, telling Kylie that surely someone in her camp was planning something.

“What I think is happening is that somewhere deep in the Minogue camp, some Mardi Gras old hag from the Mardi Gras early days is on her team now and is trying to wire them all in together,” he said.



Well even if Kylie doesn’t perform at the big concert for Mardi Gras, maybe she will appear on one of the floats? The KIIS1065 float perhaps?

Kyle was explaining to Kylie that we had our own colourful float in the parade this year and that she was more than welcome to jump on board next year!

“We’ll get the newsreader off the float and we’ll have a golden space for you if you want to join us on the float,” said Kyle.

“Not to be missed!” replied Kylie.


So we’re going to take that as a solid yes and start preparing the golden throne for the ‘Dancing’ singer ASAP…

Either way, we know that the one sure place we can see Kylie is when she performs her Golden Tour here in Australia next March.
