PNAU frontman Nick Littlemore — who is appearing just after Kylie Minogue at tonight’s Mardi Gras Party — says his Bondi pad was his “first real home”.
In an exclusive interview, Littlemore, who has his apartment at 2/14 Francis St on the market currently, confirmed that Minogue would be performing and that he is going on stage “just before or just after”.
Other sources said it was likely Kylie would perform with her friend, Jake Shears of the Scissor Sisters, which is scheduled for 12.30-12.45pm in the Hordern Pavilion.

PNAU is set to be at 1.15am-1.55am in the Royal Hall of Industries.
Littlemore said his first property was in Paris but it was “too small to really live in.”
“This was my first real home,” he said of the Francis St apartment.
“Opening up all the windows and letting the beachy breeze flow through the whole apartment, it’s a beautiful feeling.”
He said that he especially loved Bondi because of its “village feel”.

“Although we have space for 2 cars we pretty stay in the area and walk everywhere from restaurants to grocers, barber shops, record stores, markets the lot!”
The charming apartment is scheduled for March 28 auction with Raine and Horne Double Bay agents Ric Serrao and Michelle Brooks with a price guide of $1.1 million.
It’s the size of a semi, with 87 sqm of living space, two spacious bedrooms plus a sunroom.
It’s on the northern side of Macedon, a landmark Art Deco building, and is just two minutes walk to the surf and sand.
Littlemore spends most of his time in Los Angeles, with his wife, Gigi Rose Gray.
However he revealed they have plans to buy a rural property.
“We are craving country living,” he said.
“After Bondi, we are looking at some land in northern NSW.”
CoreLogic data shows that Littlemore bought the Bondi Beach apartment for $760,000 in 2010.
