2014 Commonwealth Games closing ceremony features Kylie
The 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow is coming to an end, with the closing ceremony scheduled to begin less than 24-hours after the end of the track and field events. If you wish to know the 2014 Commonwealth Games closing ceremony time, the finale will kick off at 21:00 UK time on Sunday.
The organisers have confirmed that the 2014 Commonwealth Games closing ceremony will include in excess of two thousand volunteer performers, and have promised to close an ‘amazing games’ with ‘a night out not to be missed,’ reports the BBC.
The Commonwealth Games 2014 closing ceremony will feature Aussie pop star Kylie Minogue performing alongside Lulu, Dougie MacLean and Deacon Blue, and the Hampden Stadium will include over 160-tonnes of staging, 454 flags and 3,000 props.
Apparently Kylie’s performance will represent the game’ transfer to Australia where the games will be held in 2018, whilst Deacon Blue, one of Scotland’s most successful acts will perform to their largest ever global audience.
David Grevemberg, the chief exec of Glasgow 2014 has said, “There is so much for so many people to celebrate. Our Commonwealth athletes have been inspirational and the people of Glasgow and Scotland will give them and all our visitors a great send-off. Never has a city or its people been prouder or more welcoming.”
Also performing is Glasgow synthpop band Prides, and roughly 4,000 are expected to attend the closing ceremony, which will be aired live on the BBC and in 71 Commonwealth nations.
