Kylie Minogue has announced details of a one-off livestream gig.
Kylie: Infinite Disco takes place on November 7 and promises to take viewers "through a parallel universe from solitary isolation to an alternative euphoric dance-floor community of togetherness".
The 50-minute performance will feature many tracks from Kylie's new album DISCO, released on November 6, as well as plenty of Kylie classics that have been "specially re-arranged" for the event by the singer's regular collaborators Biff Stannard and Steve Anderson.
"It's hard to call it a concert," Kylie told Metro newspaper of the show. "I think of it as a performance as there is no crowd. There's no response to what you are doing. But it will be a very exciting way to present a lot of the new music and a few old hits."
The virtual spectacular, helmed by Kylie and co-directed by Kate Moross and Rob Sinclair, ends in a future time and place where we can, in Kylie’s words from her recent single Say Something, "all be as one again".
Choreography has also been created by Ashley Wallen, another longrime Kylie collaborator also known for his work on The Greatest Showman.
Marc Life Episode 2 will be broadcast on 30 September 2020 at 8pm (UK time) and will be a Marc Bolan and T Rex Birthday Special.
The show will be jam packed with live music and special guests such as Danielz, Toyah, Nona Hendryx, Glen Matlock, Andy Ellison, BP Fallon, Simon Napier Bell, Vicki Wickham, Chris Braide, Neal X and more.
Tickets are just £10 and are available now from Out Savvy.
Marc Life Episode 2 will only be available online at the time of broadcast and will not be available as a 'catch up'.
