For more than 20 years pop sensation Kylie Minogue has fascinated fans with her studio releases and live tours. Kylie stops at The Pearl Concert Theater inside the Palms Casino Resort as part of her six city, first-ever U.S. tour on Saturday, October 3, 2009.
In July 1987 Kylie released her first single; a remake of the 1962 Little Eva hit “Locomotion.” The song hit #1 in Australia and remained in the top spot for seven weeks, becoming the biggest Australian single of the ’80s. Twenty years later she now holds the record for the most played female artist on UK radio over the last 20 years.
Kylie’s recording career began in 1987 when she released “Locomotion” which topped the charts in Australia and S.E. Asia. Her eponymously titled debut album, released July 1988, contained the hit singles “I Should Be So Lucky,” “Got To Certain” and “Je Ne Sais Pas Pourquoi.” It sold more than 5 million copies worldwide. Her duet with Jason Donovan, “Especially For You” debuted at #2 and shipped silver on release bringing Kylie’s single sales in the U.K. to well over 2 million in under 12 months. The album sold similar quantities, going seven-times platinum in the UK. Through the years, multiple successful releases followed the impressive debut including Rhythm of Love and Impossible Princess (aka Kylie Minogue).
In March 2005 Kylie’s sold out Showgirl – The Greatest Hits Tour opened to great critical acclaim. She went on to perform 23 sold out nights at only four venues in the UK including seven nights at Earls Court Arena where she set the record for the most dates by a female artist ever at a UK venue. The tour also played 14 sold out dates throughout Europe before travelling to Australia where the rest of the tour had to be postponed due to Kylie being diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. Kylie spent the next twelve months focusing on her treatment and on November 11, 2006 Kylie made an emotional return to the stage in Australia to resume her Showgirl Tour which was retitled, Showgirl Homecoming. The reviews were superlative.
Kylie is currently working on several projects, but concentrating on her tenth studio album.
