Kylie!  Kylie!  Kylie!

I don’t even know where to begin because Kylie Minogue’s show tonight left me speechless.  Picture it:  October 11, 2009 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.  Pop princess Kylie Minogue has been on the music scene for over 20 years, selling out stadiums all over the world, but never quite making the biggest splash in the US of A.  That all changed tonight.  Hitting the stage at 8:15 PM, every homosexual in Manhattan was on hand to see Kylie Minogue’s first show in New York City.  There are 100 people involved in the production of the show, 7 costume changes, 8 dancers, 9 US tour dates (3 of them are in New York City), 6 cities over 14 days.  Let’s not forget, Kylie has only recovered from a bout with breast cancer less than 5 years ago.

Kylie is sexy but not trashy.  Her outfits were fierce.  The lighting was incredible.  She sang hit after hit including “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head,” “Wow,” “Slow,” “Come Into My World,” “Better the Devil You Know,” “Love at First Sight,” a jazzy rendition of her first US hit “The Locomotion,” and she also payed homage to the former queen of the NY gay scene Madonna by doing a little bit of “Vogue.” Towards the beginning of the show, she received an ovation that lasted for close to 5 minutes!  She was so gracious, she announced all of her band and dancers twice plus she even gave a shout out to the crew for putting a stadium show together inside a 2,000 seat venue.

K is for Kylie!

K is for Kylie!

She’s got two more shows left in Manhattan and at least one of them is sold out, so RUN don’t walk to get your tickets. You will not be disappointed.

See the setlist and a bunch more Kylie after the jump!

    My hero, Kylie Minogue. She is very nice of doing favors for cancer charity and also understands the need of cancer patients as she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005. She is a brave woman.

    Its nice that Kylie Minogue has bought a new mansion in London. Finally will be living with her partner Andres Valencoso. Hope things work out with them well.
