Kylie Minogue will make her only UK live appearance this year at an ABBA tribute concert in London‘s Hyde Park this September.
The Australian singer is set to take part at the ‘Thank You For The Music: A Celebration of the Music of ABBA’ event on September 13.
Minogue will be joined by ABBA‘s Benny Andersson to perform a version of ‘When All Is Said And Done’. She hailed the chance to perform with an ABBA member as a “dream come true”, reports BBC News.
“Their music has played such a great part in my life from a very early age and I’m thrilled I’ll be able to share that with them personally,” she said.
Other acts appearing at the show include Jamie Cullum, Lulu, Chaka Khan, The Feeling, Sharleen Spiteri and Elaine Paige.
ABBA‘s Bjorn Ulvaeus will also perform, as well as the cast of the West End ABBA musical ‘Mamma Mia!’.
The event is being broadcast live on BBC Radio 2.
