Inside Kyle Sandilands' wild A-list 52nd birthday party after $1million wedding

Kyle Sandilands made sure he celebrated his birthday in style.

After recently spending $1million on his lavish wedding to Tegan Kynaston, Kyle Sandilands once again went big when celebrating his 52nd birthday in Sydney on Saturday night.

The radio star spent the night partying at an intimate Russell Crowe concert at Manning Bar, where the actor dedicated half the show to Kyle – who was joined by wife Tegan, co-host Jackie O Henderson, best friend John Ibrahim and other friends and family.

Rita Ora and Taika Waititi also partied with the gang in their VIP section, before the pop star joined Russell on stage for a surprise duet of Amy Winehouse's Valerie.

Russell stopped the show multiple times to wish Kyle a happy birthday, even passing him a $350 bottle of Clase Azul Tequila from the stage through the crowd as a gift at one stage.

Kyle Sandilands’ $1 million wedding

Kyle married Tegan Kynaston in front of about 130 guests at the beginning of May, including Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Guy Sebastian, NSW Premier Chris Minns and his radio co-host Jackie Henderson.

There has been controversy surrounding the A-list guest list, particularly around Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s attendance.

Mr Albanese quashed rumours he would be manning the DJ deck at the wedding, but confirmed he had secured an invite.


“Yes, I was invited to the wedding, yes, I was invited in the context of Kyle saying how happy he was with Tegan, with this relationship, of his and with baby Otto coming along and I look forward to witnessing their expression of love between two people this afternoon,” Mr Albanese said.

In an interview between Kyle and Mr Albanese, he revealed the Prime Minister would be charged with keeping his mother company at the wedding.

“She’s a fan of yours, so she’s going to lose her mind,” the shock jock told him live on air.

Kyle’s $100K wedding gift reveal live on-air

Just days after his lavish wedding Kyle revealed on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, that their producer Pedro Vitola had looked up the value of each wedding present they had received from their A-list guests

“Guy and Jules Sebastian are first on the list, and don’t forget that Guy gifted multiple performances for free,” Kyle said, saying that the Australian Idol star could easily command a $100,000 performance fee.

Not only did Guy perform during their first dance, he also performed inside the church and gifted Kyle some expensive Waterford Crystal glasses worth $1,500.

Another expensive gift came from Kyle’s groomsman John Ibrahim, who is famous for owning a number of nightclubs in the Kings Cross area.

“John Ibrahim and his gorgeous missus Sarah…I was given a yellow envelope,” the host teased. “If you watch the TV shows, you know the envelopes are full of cash.”

Jackie was taken aback when she heard that Kyle received $10,000 of cash in the envelope, and quickly became nervous about her own gift.

“Okay, s**t, I’m done. I’m done now. I didn’t spend 10 grand,” she told Kyle.

It seems as though Kyle is a big fan of Waterford Crystal, with Today’s Karl Stefanovic gifting him approximately $4000 worth of Waterford Crystal champagne glasses.

On the lower end of the scale, TV host Beau Ryan and his wife Kara gave Kyle a $224 Vera Wang red wine decanter, which the married couple loved.

Jackie gifted Kyle a thoughtful and practical gift — monogrammed Luis Vuitton travel luggage for their honeymoon.

At the end of the segment, the radio host declared that he honestly didn’t want any gifts from his friends, and it didn’t matter how much money people spent.

“I didn’t want to say all the values of things because it wasn’t about how much money spent…it’s true, I didn’t want any gifts,” he said.
