Kylie Minogue is to tour Europe with a brand new show in 2008. Inspired by her new album ‘X’ (released this week), Kylie and her creative team have devised a new show that she describes herself as “fresh, exhilarating and innovative”.
The new show will be a totally different concept to previous Minogue concerts. The Kylie 2008 tour opens in Paris on May 6 and progresses throughout Europe, reaching the UK on June 26 when she plays at Belfast’s Odyssey. The tour then continues with dates in Glasgow, Manchester and London, concluding at London’s 02 Arena.
Kylie said today: “I am putting together a show that is going to be a new and exciting experience for both the audience and myself. The eclectic mix of sounds on ‘X’ is affording me an opportunity to explore and develop a new live show that will be fresh, exhilarating and innovative. After two celebratory tours, ‘X’ will be a look to the future but will definitely include favorites alongside the new. I can’t wait to share it with you
next year! See you soon!”
Tickets go on sale for UK shows on Monday December 3rd, priced at 49GBP (except Belfast), the same price as her last spectacular “Showgirl Homecoming” tour.

‘White Diamond’ Reveals Kylie Minogue Cancer Toll
November 24, 2007 – ‘White Diamond: A Personal Portrait of Kylie Minogue’ will be shown on Channel 4 tonight in the UK, and News of the World has a preview of the documentary, where the singer discusses the serious respiratory tract infection which left her too weak to walk off-stage after her Manchester date early this year. “At that point I was just so drained. I felt like my body was a battleground,” the 39-year-old admitted. The Australian star said she worried about failing to complete the tour. “We didn’t know how strong I was going to be to get through it,” Minogue revealed. I probably could have waited longer. I really just want to get it done—to be able to move on.”
