Kylie Minogue to play Glastonbury Legends slot 2019?

"This performance will be a very emotional and poignant moment for her."

Kylie Minogue has reportedly been confirmed for the Glastonbury Legends slot in 2019, 14 years after she was forced to ditch a huge headline slot.

The Australian pop icon, 50, pulled out of headlining the festival in 2005 after she was diagnosed with breast cancer only a month before the Worthy Farm bash.

Now, she’s set to make her anticipated return in the Sunday afternoon Legends slot – following in the revered footsteps of Barry Gibb, Lionel Richie and Dolly Parton.

A Glasto insider told The Sun: “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.”

Speaking earlier this year, Kylie admitted that she was eager for a long-awaited Glastonbury performance.

“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”, she said.

“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.”
