MUSIC
The Nocturne Live concert series, which
returns to Blenheim Palace from Thursday
June 20 to Sunday June 23, has confirmed pop
superstar Kylie Minogue (above) as headliner
for the closing night.
The chart-topping Australian singer will
perform hits from across her back catalogue,
as well as music from her latest album,
2018’s country-tinged
Golden.
Support will come from multi-million-
selling Sophie Ellis-Bextor, whose new album
The Song Diaries
will be released this month.
With more than 40 UK Top 10 singles
between them, this exclusive concert will
feature an array of some of the best-known
pop hits of the last 20 years.
Ciro Romano, Nocturne Live Founder says:
“We jumped at the chance to book Kylie for
Nocturne Live. She’s an incredible performer
with an unbelievable back catalogue to draw
upon and her live shows are always
spectacular.
“We’re thrilled to have confirmed her for the
closing night of next year’s series and look
forward to more
exciting
announcements over
the coming months.”
The four-day event,
which transforms The
Great Court at
Blenheim Palace into
the ultimate open-air
concert venue, will
also feature 30 million-
selling 80s pop duo
Tears For Fears (right).
The duo, who will
headline on Saturday
June 22, has a huge catalogue of hit songs
including
Everybody Wants To Rule The World,
Shout, Head Over Heels
and
Mad World
. They
will be supported by London-based post-
punk five-piece White Lies and chart-topping
synth-pop outfit Scritti Politti.
“Tears For Fears are such an iconic band with
an incredible catalogue of songs that have
truly stood the test of time. We can’t wait to
have them follow in the footsteps of the likes
of Elvis Costello, Jamie Cullum and Gregory
Porter and headline the Saturday night of
next summer’s event,” said Ciro.
Nocturne Live is fast becoming one of the
UK’s most prestigious and popular stately
home concert experiences. Concert goers
can enjoy a range of fast food on sale or
picnic in the beautiful grounds before
the show.
Since its launch in 2015 the series
has presented shows from the likes of
Gary Barlow, Nile Rodgers, Noel
Gallagher, Elvis Costello, Elton John,
Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter, Van
Morrison, Ennio Morricone, The Corrs
and The Jacksons.
Additional acts for this year will be
announced in due course.
Meanwhile tickets for Kylie Minogue
with special guest Sophie Ellis-Bextor
and Tears For Fears are available from
Nocturne Live
at Blenheim Palace
