Imagine it: Kylie Minogue, icon to a generation of gays in tight clothing singing two songs from the gay Bible, also known as the Abba songbook. Live. Well… as live as it gets when you’re talking about Kylie. In a park. In London. Do you think any gay men might go?
The event is thoughtfully called Thank You For the Music and will feature the musicality of Abba, in collaboration with Benny and Bjorn (the ladies have gone mad, married stalkers and become baronesses so they’re far too busy), and the vocal talents of Chaka Khan, Elaine ‘potato actress’ Paige, Sharleen off-of Texas, The Feeling, VV Brown, erm, Jason Donovan and Lulu, who will be doing ‘Weee-eee-eeell, Waterloo…’ There will also be The Benny Andersson Band, who we have it on very reliable authority, are very good indeed.
Take hampers and booze and set your phone to Grindr and get down to Hyde Park on Sunday 13th September. And we did know what songs Kylie was going to sing but we’ve forgotten.
Honestly, we’d forget our own bottoms if they weren’t screwed off.
