Kylie Minogue is set to debut new music at her first big gigs in three years.
The Australian pop idol is set to headline WorldPride in Sydney on February 24, and the LGBTQ+ ally has some new tunes up her sleeve to test out on the crowd.

The ‘Spinning Around’ hitmaker is also booked for the New Year’s Eve Gala at Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai.
Earlier this month it was revealed that Kylie had finished working on her 16th studio album.
The ‘I Should Be So Lucky’ singer flew to London from her home in Australia to secretly meet with executives from her BMG label so they could hear the finished tracks and plan the next steps for the record, which should be out next year.
A source said: “It’s all being treated as top secret. Most people at the label didn’t even know she was coming.
“She flew quietly to London to visit the bosses of BMG.
“They’ve been really impressed and discussions have continued on how they’re going to roll it out.
“Details are being worked out, but the album is expected to be released in the first half of 2023.”
BMG boss Alistair Norbury confirmed last month that Kylie would release the sequel to 2020’s ‘Disco’ in 2023.
He said: “So next year we’ll be starting our third album with Kylie, and we only expected to do one. So the roster is building to a size where it’s almost self-sustaining. We already know our first Q1 and Q2 outings for next year.”
The 54-year-old star is believed to have teamed up with a number of “exciting” artists for the record, including songwriter Kamille.
A source said in July: “Kylie didn’t get a chance to tour her last album due to COVID restrictions, but she got back into writing music.
“She really enjoys being in the studio and is spending this summer working on her next album with some really exciting collaborators like [the songwriter] Kamille.
“‘Disco’ has proven that she still has what it takes to make a massive hit pop album and people are lining up to work with her.
“Major projects are on the way and she can’t wait to put out another record and get back on the road.”
Although Kylie was eager to get back on tour, she wanted to make sure she had some new music for her fans first.
The insider added, “It’s been over three years since her ‘Golden’ tour and she can’t wait to perform.
“But that won’t happen now until this new album comes out. It’ll be worth the wait.”
