KYLIE ARRIVES IN OZ !!
A beaming Kylie Minogue arrived in Sydney yesterday for the second leg of her Australian tour.
Anticipated delays for passengers travelling with the embattled Ansett did not affect the pop star, who arrived 15 minutes early at Sydney Airport.
Wearing pink tinted sunglasses, matching coloured sleeveless top and blue denim jeans, Kylie said the adoration of fans in Brisbane on Saturday night "blew me away. They were incredibly loud. It's a special feeling."
She will perform seven shows at the Sydney Entertainment Centre from tomorrow night, before flying to Melbourne, Hobart and Perth.
Asked how performing in Australia compared with overseas, she said: "It's home, it's different and it's special, and they are so loud."
Kylie admitted feeling nervous before her first show. "It's more excitement, but I had tiny pre-show nerves."
Before being bundled into a waiting van, Kylie hinted there maybe something special for her Sydney fans.
"Each show will change. From the very first show in Glasgow it has been a work in progress," she said.
Kylie said she was thrilled to be performing in Tasmania and Western Australia, places she has previously left out due to budgetary constraints.
