Kylie Minogue and G
I won’t be forgetting May 3, 2011 any time soon.¬† It’s the day I met pop goddess Kylie Minogue!¬† She was extremely cool.¬†¬†In addition to taking a photo with yours truly, she signed a photo for me that I took on her last tour.¬† Wow Wow Wow Wow!¬† I saw her Aphrodite Les Foiles tour last night and it was incredible.¬† The show features amazing costumes, dancers, acrobatics and music that will put you in a great mood.¬† The show is a must see (and take my word for it – I see several hundred bands a year).¬† All I can say is thank you so much Kylie.¬† I believe in you!

Kylie Minogue is more than a pop princess, she’s a goddess!¬†¬†Her Aphrodite Les Foiles tour rolled into New York on May 2, 2011 for¬†the first of a 3 night run, and even if you don’t care for her music, I cannot recommend strongly enough that you go see her perform.¬† There’s great lights,¬†visuals, costumes and of course, highly addictive dance grooves.¬† You¬†can see pictures, a review and the setlist here.¬†¬† One of the highlights of the show for me (and there were almost too many to name) was Kylie’s cover of Eurythmics’ “There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart).”¬† You can see the video below.¬† I had no idea she’d be performing this song, so I missed the first line.¬† When you hear this dance version of one of my favorite Eurythmics songs, I think you’ll agree that seeing Kylie is non-negotiable when she comes to your town.¬† Kylie plays the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York on May 3 and 4, 2011 – so don’t miss it!

In 2009, when Kylie Minogue performed her first tour in the US, I left her show thinking it was one of the better shows I’d seen that year.¬† 2 years later, Kylie Minogue is back with her Aphrodite Les Foiles Tour and it’s one of the best shows I’ve seen in 2011.¬† Playing the first of 3 nights at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom, Kylie hit the stage at a very early 8:30 PM.¬† Gone from this tour, were Pink Floyd worthy laser lights and instead replaced with a mythological stage set up that included a golden chariot, a marble statue and a bunch of dancers with amazing bodies who all wore very little.
Kylie played so many hits in remixed versions including a rock version of “Can’t Get You Outta My Head,” a swing version of “Slow” (that finally gave way to a dance version by the end of the song) and also sang an acoustic/dance version of “The Locomotion,”¬†– at the request of the audience.¬† Also played were her classics such as “Better the Devil You Know,” “”I Believe In You,”¬† “Spinning Around,” “On A Night Like This,” “Wow,” “The One”¬†and “In My Arms.”¬† She also focused on playing material for her latest album “Aphrodite,” including “All The Lovers,” “Get Outta My Way” and “Put Your Hands Up,” which saw the entire Hammerstein Ballroom doing just that!¬† Kylie also did 2 covers:¬† Eurythmics’ “There Must Be An Angel Playing With My Heart” (and a video of that is coming soon, so stay tuned) and Prefab Sprout’s¬† “If You Don’t Love Me.”

My amazing sense of timing has given me another great experience! ¬†On November 10, 2010, I met singer Jonsi (of Sigur Ros).¬† ¬†Jonsi is performing on his own these days and I was very fortunate to catch his first solo show in New York earlier this year. ¬†As I was walking towards the Hammerstein Ballroom, I saw Jonsi walking down the street with his friend! ¬†He was extremely nice and posed for the above photo with me. ¬†He also autographed 4 photos that I took of him when I saw him over the summer and he complimented me on the photos. ¬†WOW! ¬†Thanks again so much Jonsi for putting on such a great show, for all the great music and for being so very nice!
Jonsi is performing at the Hammerstein Ballroom on November 10, 2010. ¬†Don’t miss him!
