ITV has announced that Kylie Minogue will host an evening of live music to be broadcast on ITV1 and ITVX later this year.


An Audience with Kylie will feature "sensational live performances", while the pop icon will also answer questions from the floor posed by specially invited VIP guests including celebrity superfans.

It will see the Australian star perform beloved numbers from throughout her career – including both early classics and more recent songs, such as this year's smash-hit chart-topper Padam Padam.

The event will take place at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday 1st December with several A-listers expected to be in attendance, and tickets are set to to on sale from Friday 8th September.
