Kylie's New Year's Eve London gig
Kylie Minogue
Minogue's gig will be her first UK show since her cancer diagnosis
Pop star Kylie Minogue is returning to the UK stage to play a one-off London concert on New Year's Eve.

The Australian singer, who recently took time off to receive treatment for breast cancer, will play the 31 December show at Wembley Arena.

"I've been to some great New Year's parties over the years and I can't wait to host what will be the biggest party of all," Minogue said.

The concert will start at 2000 GMT and run until midnight.

Dancefloor for 3,500

The newly-announced show comes on the heels of Minogue's Showgirl comeback tour in Australia last month, which received widespread critical acclaim. It will be her first UK show since her cancer diagnosis in May 2005.

A dancefloor with capacity for 3,500 people will be built at the Arena for the show. The venue will stay open until 0100GMT.

Transport for London (TfL) has announced that Tube services will be free and run until 0430GMT, as well as normal night bus services.

Tickets for the New Year's Eve show - which cost 65 - will go on sale at 0900GMT on Thursday 14 December.
