KYLIE "doing" ABBA
the gayest ticket in town has just gone on sale
More from Bob Henderson
ONE: It's called Radio 2's Thank You For The Music… A Celebration Of The Music Of Abba
TWO: PintsizedPopPoofPrincessTM Kwylie is playing
THREE: tickets are twenty five quid
Brave Kylie will perform Super Trouper (you: yay! go gurl! etc) and When All Is Said And Done (you: cry, sob, but ultimately feel uplifted by the joyous gift of being alive. Even though it has the lyric "not too old for sex") She's performing with Benny Andersssson, her only UK live stint this year.
There are lots of other details like: Chris Evans hosting, the cast of Mamma Mia, some ropey Chess numbers, Lulu ruining Gimme Gimme Gimme, Chaka, Chaka, Chaka Khan! doing The Winner Takes It All (possibly the best song ever written, even with the odd dodgy rhyme) The Feeling, Sharleen Spiteri, VV Brown, Elaine Paige and the RIGHT IN THE SMALL PRINT Jason Donovan. Did anyone else see that terrible Kylie ITV Show where they had horrendous "comedy" sketches where Kylie didn't recognise Jason backstage? Literally the only good bit of that whole show was the cat fight between dannii and kylie and then out of nowhere a hairy male stunt double looking like Mel-B-in-Bo-Selecta got thrown into a clothes rail.
Recap/Cut'n'paste: Thank You For The Music... A Celebration Of The Music Of Abba, Sunday 13 September 2009, Hyde Park, London.The event will be broadcast live on Radio 2 from 6.30 to 9.30pm.
