A message from Kylie in her dressing room just before she goes on stage for her first night

The Tour started tonight in Denmark. we can’t wait for the tour to hits New York City in May!

THE SHOWGIRL RETURNS…
AS THE GODDESS OF LOVE… RISING FROM THE SEA!!
Nine years ago, in 2002, Kylie Minogue embarked upon her KylieFever world tour– it was her 5th world tour and her biggest to date – breaking box office records everywhere and setting a new standard for pop concerts throughout the world. The NME said “One day all concerts will be like this: phenomenally staged, flawlessly performed”!

KylieFever was followed by Showgirl in 2005 (“The gig of the year? No doubt about it!.” THE TIMES), Homecoming in 2006/7 (“it was her imagination and professionalism which established a new benchmark for the pop concert. Simply, Minogue is the best act in town” DAILY TELEGRAPH) and most recently by KylieX2008 (“Pop is the highest of the arts, because it encompasses all the others.. (and Kylie) is the ultimate practitioner of this ultimate discipline (and) on the issue of her supremacy, I won’t give an inch… Kylie is actually a pop genius” THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY).

Unbelievably each tour has been bigger and more spectacular than the preceding! Now, in 2011, she’s on the road.


Aphrodite-Les Folies Tour 2011 promises to break all previous records – the show is grander than anything you’ve seen to date! This incredible show was created by Kylie and William Baker, her long-time creative collaborator.

Rehearsals started in locations throughout the world before Christmas – Kylie is currently rehearsing with her new band in London; the dancers and aerialists are being put through their paces by not one but three top choreographers in Los Angeles; the tech crew are putting together the props and staging on the East coast in Pennsylvania and Montreal whilst the video team are furiously at work back in the UK. Phew!

The bespoke stage for the European leg of the tour (including UK) is the most technically advanced, complex and precision stage ever created for an arena. It features over a million moving parts, including 30 high impact water jets, rain curtains and fountains! The stage, alone costing over $10million, was built by Tait Towers, the largest staging company in the world, responsible for building stages for the Rolling Stones, U2, Madonna, The Wall etc. etc.

The water elements featured in the show have been designed by the same team who engineered the famous water fountain show at Bellagio in Las Vegas, and the spectacular “World of Colour” show at Disneyland in California. Aphrodite-Les Folies will feature a totally unique “SPLASH ZONE” within the stage itself, where fans can be in the centre of the action in an amazing 4D experience.

The entire production is valued at over $25 million, and will see Kylie joined on stage by a huge cast of dancers and aerial performers along with her live band. The show will be moved throughout Europe by a crew of over 100 personnel in a fleet of 25 trucks!

The North American leg of the tour entitled Aphrodite Live 2011 has been specifically designed to take maximum advantage of more intimate rooms offering the audiences in America, Canada and Mexico a unique experience tailored specifically to the market. Please note that the Splash Zone will not apply in North America or Japan.

Kylie said today “Rehearsals are well underway and the show is shaping up to be more than I could have wished for. All departments are doing a stellar job and the combined level of expertise is nothing short of mind blowing. My friends, Dolce & Gabbana have designed an amazing wardrobe for me. I’m overwhelmed with the love and talent that is going into this tour and I can’t wait for my fans to be part of it”
