Kylie Minogue to close Commonwealth Games - report

Pop star Kylie Minogue is set to perform at the closing ceremony of the 2014 Commonwealth Games, according to a U.K. report.

The athletics showpiece will take place in Glasgow, Scotland later this month (Jul14) with a closing ceremony at the city's Hampden Park football stadium to be held on 3 August (14).

A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper the Spinning Around hitmaker will perform a five-song set at the event, adding that the singer hopes the appearance will boost her music career.

The source says, "Kylie is putting all her eggs into one basket. She was delighted when her management pulled off this high-profile concert. Although she's huge in the U.K. and elsewhere, she's never fully managed to achieve global status like Beyonce and Rihanna."
