Kylie Minogue tipped to play her first ever solo set at Glastonbury next year

Get those cowboy boots ready – or should we say wellies? – as Kylie Minogue has been tipped to play her first ever solo set at Glastonbury festival.

The singer has apparently agreed to perform a career-spanning set of her biggest hits on the Pyramid Stage in Somerset next June, when Europe’s biggest music festival returns after a fallow year.

It’s been reported that Kylie will play the popular legends slot on a Sunday afternoon, which has previously pulled in huge audiences both to the stage and on television.

Dolly Parton and Lionel Richie are just a few of the iconic names who have performed during the slot in recent years.

Kylie was originally booked to headline Glastonbury back in 2005, but had to pull out a month before her set after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Since then, she has performed at the festival once, making a special guest appearance during the Scissor Sisters’ set in 2010.

“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,” an insider told The Sun.

“She jumped at the opportunity to appear next year and it is the perfect way to celebrate her career.”

The Glastonbury set will also be in support of her latest album Golden, which topped the UK chart earlier this year.
