Kylie Minogue, Grace Jones and Nile Rodgers team up for Hyde Park concert

By Nick Bond

WE’RE calling it now: This might well shape up to be the party of the year.

After announcing headlining shows from Taylor Swift and The Who, this morning the folk at Hyde Park British Summer Time concerts unveiled their trump card:

Kylie Minogue.

Grace Jones.

Chic ft. Nile Rodgers.

With the Aussie pop princess taking the headlining spot, ably assisted by disco legends Chic and Jamaican queen Jones, the mammoth show will take place on Sunday June 21.

Can we start the petition now for these three dance floor titans to finish the show by playing a few songs together?

Kylie was her usual chipper self in today’s announcement, saying: GJ©Jean-Paul GOUDE

“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!”

However, Jones kept her cool with this oh-so-Grace-Jones guarantee: “I’ll bring the Jekyll to Hyde Park.”

Tickets on sale 9am this Friday.
