Kylie To Play Ischgl! (24-Feb-09)

Ischgl, Austria, Feb 24., 2009 - Ischgl, the showbiz centre of the Alps

Ischgl, the showbiz centre of the Alps, has pulled off another coup by signing Kylie Minogue for the ski resort's end-of-season concert in May.

Kylie follows in the footsteps of a galaxy of other superstars who have entertained skiers and boarders in the Austrian resort's traditional Top of the Mountain gig, including Elton John, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Sting, Bon Jovi, Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, Peter Gabriel, Alanis Morissette, Pink, Scissor Sisters, Melanie C, Rihanna, Lionel Richie, Leona Lewis and Gabriella Cilmi.

About 20,000 are expected to attend the concert, held in a natural bowl near the top station of the main Silvrettabahn gondola from the centre of the village. It will be held at lunchtime on Saturday 2 May – the closing weekend of the Tirolean resort, with the last skiing of the season being on Sunday 3 May. The concert is free for those with lift-passes – necessary anyway to reach the venue.

Kylie will close a season that has so far been one of Ischgl's best for snow on record, with superb skiing conditions from the opening at the end of November. The opening was marked by a concert in the village starring Leona Lewis and Gabriella Cilmi.

Kylie is reported to be delighted to be returning to Austria for her first daytime concert.
