Kylie Minogue has made a surprise appearance at the Capital Summertime Ball in London.

The Australian singer-songwriter performed her new electronic single Padam Padam to the more than 80,000 fans at the radio station’s show in Wembley Stadium.

Dressed in a red flowing outfit with matching high heel boots, and surrounded by dancers, she jumped around the stage.

Minogue revealed on Instagram that she crouched in a small, stage door lift to surprise her fans before being taken up to Wembley Stadium.


The 55-year-old also sang one of her seven chart-toppers, Can’t Get You Out Of My Head.

Minogue revealed in May that her upcoming record Tension will be a “blend of personal reflection, club abandon and melancholic high when it is released on on September 22.

Earlier, the festival had seen Tom Grennan give audiences an energetic version of How Does It Feel ahead of the singer-songwriter taking part in Soccer Aid at the Old Trafford stadium on Sunday.
