Glastonbury Festival 2019: Kylie Minogue breaks into tears while delivering a triumphant headline performance at music event 14 years after canceling breast cancer diagnosis
Kylie Minogue set a powerful performance when she took the Pyramid Stage on Sunday morning at the Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm in Somerset.
During her triumphant set, the iconic pop singer, 51, was overwhelmed with emotions when she discussed canceling her scheduled appearance in 2005 after her breast cancer diagnosis.
The award-winning musician told the crowd: & # 39; I had to be here in 2005. Circumstances meant that I didn't make it. I wish things were different, but life is what it is. We are all together right now & # 39 ;.
The singer Kylie gestured to the crowd and told how her performance was one of the moments when she realized not only this story, but also our story. Thirty plus years together & # 39 ;.
The singer added that 14 years ago, when she missed the festival, she watched the music event at home instead. She explained: & # 39; Some artists have covered some of my songs and that is the spirit and courtesy of Glastonbury. & # 39;
Kylie then invited Coldplay star Chris Martin to accompany her on stage where she performed her hit Can not get you out of my head.
Later in her set, the blonde beauty treated the fans to a surprise duet with fellow Australian singer Nick Cave on stage for a duet of their 1995 song Where The Wild Roses Grow.
Passionate: gestures to the crowd, singer Kylie told how her performance was one of the moments when she realized not only this story, but also our story. Thirty plus years together & # 39;
The former Neighbors star then conjured up a selection of her classic songs and fresh new singles, with Love At First Sight, Specially for you and Locomotion.
Earlier this month, Kylie discussed her nerves about the sky at Glastonbury. She spoke with Zoe Ball on her BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show, which was broadcast on Friday morning before going to the famous Pyramid Stage.
She said: & # 39; I can't – I just want – all I can do is hyperventilate. That's my answer. What an honor, what an absolute honor to be asked for this and to share it with so many people. My little bit of mind will definitely be blown up. I do not doubt it.
& # 39; I still can't get over it. I mean, from the moment the words were spoken, I think I've been in shock, joy, surprise, fear ever since.
& # 39; It's excitement, nerves, it's clearly emotional because of my history, and I was supposed to play here in 2005, as you said. Drama followed, to say the least.
She continued: & # 39; So the road to Glastonbury has been long and winding, with some unexpected bumps. Speed bumps!
& # 39; But I'm just like you said – it's a big sing-along, I hope so, just a big love party that you know.
& # 39; And I think with 31 years of songs and what has been discovered with the album with the biggest hits, it is all our history. & # 39;
Kylie said that although she's going up in the air, she's not afraid to walk around the festival and says, "I can let it go afterwards – trust me!"
Zoe said: & # 39; you still have Sunday night to go completely crazy and get lost at block 9 or wherever it is – you may have to wear a disguise, of course.
& # 39; I will just put the cap on the cape, & # 39; she answered.
Kylie admitted that she is struggling to shorten all her hits to a set of 75 minutes.
She said: & # 39; What we decided to do was start with a bang. I mean, with a two-hour show, you can make people a little easier and go up and down a bit.
& # 39; I don't want to give away too much, but you know, it's a party, it's time to sing along, so that's where we start. There will be a bit of an emotional section and then we will just go crazy at the end. & # 39;
