Ellen lands in Melbourne
Waiting fans miss out on meeting Ellen in Melbourne, but she has a public show on Tuesday.
But waiting fans missed out on meeting her after she waved and blew kisses to them from the tarmac between her Ellen-branded Qantas plane and a convoy of cars.
The US talk show host has a public show at Birrarung Marr at 11am tomorrow, followed by a VIP invite-only cocktail party at the Grand Hyatt on Tuesday night.
The city has turned on a pleasant 26C degrees for today and a warm 32C for tomorrow.
Her latest tweets are:
G’Day Melbourne! So far I love it here, and all I’ve seen is the airport. See ya tomorrow! Come early to get a great spot!
Aboard my very own Ellen express to Melbourne! I hope @QantasAirways lets me fly it.
Things are gonna be hot at the park tomorrow at 11am in Melbourne, and I’m not just talking about my live event. Bring water and a blanket!
11am Tuesday in Birrarung Marr Park! Are ya ready Melbourne? I can’t hear you! I can’t hear you! Probably because this is the internet.
Tomorrow at 11am I’m blowing the roof off of Birrarung Marr park in Melbourne. I know parks don’t have roofs, but you get the idea.
Another amazing day in Australia. I hope you’re ready, Melbourne. This Tuesday I wanna meet every one of ya. Make sure you get there early!
While there is speculation about a visit to the Philip Island Penguin Parade, a scheduled visit to Geelong is now off the cards due to the altered itinerary.
Geelong, of course, was once home to Mandy Rodgers, aka Portia de Rossi.
