Kylie Minogue finished off her 3-night sold-out shows at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom on October 13, 2009.  It was every bit as amazing as the first night.  The lights, the costumes, the music, the gays.  What a night!

The setlist was identical to the first night; however, as it was her last show in New York and it was the last show on her first US tour, she played a stripped down version of her smash hit “I Could Be So Lucky,” for the adoring crowd.

I admit it.  I had a few Kylie cds in the G archives prior to these shows and I’ve gotten a bunch more after seeing her live.

See more great Kylie photos and the setlist after the jump.

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!

Opening for Pink on her Funhouse tour, Manchester Band The Ting Tings played at New York’s Madison Square Garden on October 5, 2009.  While their lyrics tend to be on the silly pop song side, their music definitely got asses out of seats to bump and grind. When they played their UK #1 “That’s Not My Name,” the sold-out arena sang along to every word.

Check out some more pictures of Katie White and Jules DeMartino also known as The Ting Tings plus the set list after the jump.

Lady Gaga Live at Carnegie Hall

Lady Gaga live at Carnegie Hall

Here’s a sentence I thought I’d never say:  I saw Lady Gaga perform a piano version of “Pokerface” at Carnegie Hall.

Hot off canceling her world tour with Kayne West and announcing a solo tour instead and then performing on Saturday Night Live with Madonna, Lady Gaga turned up at Carnegie Hall for Gavin Friday’s AIDS benefit to perform “Pokerface.”  She joked that Bono had called her up and asked if she would perform in “Downtown New York for an AIDS benefit.”  She agreed, but said “this is not downtown, but when you are used to performing for 90,000 people every night, he might have been confused.” (Carnegie Hall is located in New York’s Mid-Town area).

Don’t let her stage costumes fool you.  This woman can sing!

See some more pictures that will make you go Gaga after the jump.
