Having recently made her return to the UK with an appearance at the 2019 Glastonbury Festival where she wowed fans on the Pyramid Stage, Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue made her way to Lytham where she helped the Lytham Festival celebrate its tenth anniversary with a hit-packed set to an unsurprisingly sold-out crowd.
Now, considering this is a hit-packed set that contains material that is almost thirty years old, some of the Lytham crowd can’t even have been born when the pop princess first burst onto the music scene after making her name in hit Australian soap opera Neighbours. It wasn’t long as well before the pop princess starting breaking out the hits with I Should Be So Lucky making an early appearance in the hit-drenched set. It wasn’t all just about the hits though, with Kylie making a number of costume changes throughout the show as well as throwing in a few covers along the way including Kids by Robbie Williams and Especially For You by her fellow Neighbours and Aussie pop star Jason Donovan.
As the hits continued flowing, the crowd needed no excuse to get up on their feet and dancing as Hand On Your Heart, Better The Devil You Know, Locomotion and more had this Lytham crowd celebrating not only the festival’s anniversary but some of the finest pop of the last thirty years. By the time the celebration had reached Friday, it’s fair to say that this pop legend made sure they continued with a night the town of Lytham and the thousands of fans that poured into it will be remembering for years to come and it will be on the festival is surely going to find difficult to top.
Supporting Kylie was British singer/songwriter Sophie Ellis-Bextor who spent an hour warming the crowd up with a set full of dancefloor anthems including her hit Murder On The Dancefloor and, by the time her set drew to a close, Ellis-Bextor had certainly made sure the crowd were warmed up for possibly the biggest pop party night Lytham has ever witnessed.
