Minogue Visits Pyramids Before Egypt Gig
Kylie Minogue received a guided tour of Egypt's historic Pyramids by famed archaeologist DR. ZAHI HAWASS ahead of her charity gig at the ancient site on Thursday (21Oct10).
The Spinning Around hitmaker was chosen earlier this month (Oct10) by readers of the country's eniGma magazine to perform at the publication's 10th anniversary concert, beating out competition from Rihanna, Shakira, and Jennifer Lopez.
The singer was thrilled at the prospect of performing in Egypt and shared her delight with fans on Thursday by posting a photograph of herself and Dr. Hawass in the shadow of the Great Sphinx monument.
She wrote, "With the amazing Dr Zahi Hawass in front of the Sphinx... yes THE Sphinx!!! To see these sights is so incredible, moving and powerful."
Proceeds from the concert will go to the country's Abou El Reesh children's hospital.
