Ellen lands in Melbourne

Waiting fans miss out on meeting Ellen in Melbourne, but she has a public show on Tuesday.

2013-03-25_1217Ellen Degeneres has landed in Melbourne after her whirlwind, love-affair with Sydney on the weekend (yes we use all the clichés here).

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.
