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:
