Aussie superstar Kylie Minogue gives her Irish fans a free pint of Guinness

Aussie legend Kylie Minogue has endeared herself to her Irish fans by giving them free pints of Guinness as a thank you for coming to her shows.

It was her way of making up for having to postpone two big events earlier in the year.

She was due to play in Belfast and Dublin in October but was unable to sing due to a throat infection.

The pop princess wanted to let her Irish fans know how much she appreciates them and told them via her Twitter page that she would be doing something unusual to mark her Dublin and Belfast shows.

She has arranged for anyone with a ticket to her Irish shows will be granted free entrance to Dublin’s Guinness Storehouse (provided they are aged 18 or over of course).

Once inside, they will be treated to a pint of the black stuff.

She tweeted: “”Tonight is the first of the rescheduled shows in Dublin and Belfast. I promised the Guinness was on me, but wait… @homeofguinness have made it even better!

“Here I am with ‘The perfect pint’ and you can have the same! Present your #GoldenTour ticket for the Dublin or Belfast shows and you’ll get free entry to @homeofguinness in Dublin and a pint of the black stuff. (For over 18’s only) CHEERS!! Details: www.guinness-storehouse.com/en/kylie

Kylie has also spoken about how much she enjoys playing in Ireland.

She told evoke.ie: “Irish audiences are great audiences – you’re loud, you’re up for the most fun night. Last time I played in Dublin, it was a little joke that I had that I don’t even know how it started.

“I was singing In Your Eyes as if it was a cover [in Irish accent], I think everyone laughed!

“Everyone loves going to Ireland, I even had a Guinness. Just a little one, I don’t think I could drink a pint of anything.”

She added that she has learned to appreciate the little things in life.

She said: “Life is made of moments so try and recognise good moments and the problem is we don’t.

“Because a good moment, compared to a tough moment is that you’re ok you’re happy, you’ve got good people around you, you’ve got food on your plate.

“Highs are great, but I think that the middle zone, we need to appreciate so much more.”
