Live and Proud: Sydney WorldPride Opening Concert
WorldPride is coming to the Southern Hemisphere for the first time — and who else but Kylie Minogue could open it?
February 15, 2023
On The Domain's stage on Friday, February 24, here's hoping that Australia's princess of pop utters five specific words: "come into my Sydney WorldPride". The massive LGBTQIA+ festival is heading to the southern hemisphere for the first time, taking over Sydney for two and a half weeks — and who else but Kylie Minogue could open it?
Sydney WorldPride's lineup isn't short on highlights, but Kylie headlining Live and Proud: Sydney WorldPride Opening Concert, spinning around and making sure that Sydney WorldPride festivalgoers can't get her out of their heads is obviously massive.
LOVERS! For the first time ever, WorldPride is coming to the Southern Hemisphere. YES! I'm so excited to announce that I will be performing at the opening concert in Sydney on 24 February, 2023 at The Domain. Can't wait to see you there! 💖 https://t.co/ExghPi5NEw pic.twitter.com/Wt0q1Szg2n

Sydney shall be so lucky — and so will Live and Proud: Sydney WorldPride Opening Concert attendees, because it'll mark Kylie's only WorldPride performance. Her set for the night is also being created especially for the evening, so this isn't the kind of Kylie show you've seen before. Also, she'll be sharing the stage with Charli XCX and Jessica Mauboy.
The performance will be broadcast live nationwide on the ABC, too — and on a night like this, Casey Donovan and Courtney Act will be on hosting duties.
"Kylie is not only a beloved musician and rainbow icon, but the highest selling Australian-born solo artist of all time," said Sydney WorldPride CEO Kate Wickett, announcing the news.
"We are honoured and INCREDIBLY excited to have Kylie again stand with our community at Sydney WorldPride 2023 — the global rainbow family reunion we've been waiting for."
