Kylie Minogue announces first US tour, or Why your gay coworker just screamed

Depending on your fondness for robo-pop beats, respirator vocals and spangly full-body leopard suits, this may or may not be earthshaking news: Kylie Minogue is coming to America! Twenty years into a career that has produced hits on both sides of the Atlantic, the pint-size diva has still never given Yankees a chance to catch her live act. But all that’s changing this fall, when Ms. Minogue kicks off a six-city tour of the states, starting  September 30th in Oakland, CA (tickets go on sale May 15).

My coworker Mandi Bierly already outed me months ago as a massive Kylie fan, so it’s no secret I’m Spinning Around with Fever at the thought that I Should Be So Lucky to get the chance to Come Into Kylie’s World. She’s Like a Drug to me. It was Love at First Sight. Ok, I’m done. Promise(s).

Anybody else out there as excited as I am? A little taste of last year’s European tour, below:

    Kylie’s Showgirl tour (available on DVD) is still one of the greatest pop extravaganzas ever!! Check it out and get those tickets!

    AAAAAH! This makes me so happy! Except I live in Austin. I know the rest of Texas bites, but we would love to have her here! PLEASE!

  • rockgolf

    Technically, it’s a 5-city tour of the states, since Toronto isn’t actually an American city. It just plays one on TV.

  • Lee-B

    There will be more dates. Once these 5 shows sell out in minutes, more cities will be added.

  • Todd

    I totally screamed at work too when I found out on Facebook and through text messages.

    I screamed outloud at work when I saw that Kylie was FINALLY coming to America. I have waited nearly 10 years for this moment and I am SO there at the LA, Vegas and Oakland shows!
