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.

SO DOES ROBBIE.....BUT WHY ????

Just heard that Mr. Robbie Williams flew into Sydney on Sunday.
Word is that Sydney is the venue for the filming of Kylie's concert.

ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS TOUR VIDEO

Latest information says that Kylie is to release "On A Night Like This 2001" world tour on video.
Tickets being sold in Australia state that the concert may be filmed

'80's Mania screens on Saturday 14th April, on ITV.


Kylie set to to star in stage musical of "The Prince and the Showgirl" in 2002.

Reported on 1st April (April Fool's Day) was that Kylie has been offered $15,000 AUS to appear as herself in a club scene in "neighbours" later this year.
The suspicious story claimed that Kylie was thinking about
the offer.

In an interview feature with Malaysia's NSTP, Sheyne Coates of Madison Avenue backs Kylie's decision not to use the
song they wrote for her on the 'Light Years' album.

"After I heard the album Light Years, I had to agree with her move not to include the song. It's a great song but it
didn't fit in with the mood of the album.
Maybe I'll give it to Britney Spears," she says.

Kylie lingerie will not be on sale in UK

Kylie Minogue's new range of lingerie will only be available in Australia.

The singer is launching the underwear in her native country in April.

It will be called Love Kylie.

But UK fans will not be able to buy it.


Kylie to sell home to Marky Mark
Wahlberg wants singer's LA house

Kylie Minogue looks set to hand over the keys to her Los Angeles home to Perfect Storm actor Mark Wahlberg for 1 million. The Australian singer is moving out to live in London and spend more time with her boyfriend, model James Gooding. A friend of Minogue's told PeopleNews: 'Mark has seen the house and loves it. He's very keen and is intent on having it.' Minogue bought the four-bedroom house with its pool and spa in fashionable West Hollywood a few months ago. But the success of her collaboration with Robbie Williams and her relationship with Gooding have meant she is spending more time in London and looks likely to make the capital her permanent home.

Kyie In Talks To Appear in Radio Play

Kylie Minogue is set to put her hugely successful singing career on hold to make a return to acting. The Australian star is in secret talks with the BBC about returning to her first love, Boomerang can reveal, although this time around she wants to do it on the radio. Minogue, 32, has seen recently seen her pop career undergo a renaissance with her latest album Light Years, and is known to be gunning for a cameo television role in the long-running EastEnders' series - 12 years after she first appeared on British screens in Aussie soap Neighbours. However, sources close to Kylie have said that she is equally keen to star in a BBC Radio play. One friend of hers said: 'Kylie is looking for a way to ease herself back into acting after being away for a long time. She feels a radio play would be perfect. The productions are highly regarded and are put together relatively quickly, which would be a big advantage with her busy schedule. She is determined to show she is a serious actress and is thinking about life after her pop career is over.

WARNING !!!!!

CONCERT REVIEW



Kylie Minogue has played Manchester Apollo for four nights running and packed out the concert hall each time earning an estimated 50,000 per show, with each show selling out well in advance at 20 per ticket. Touts outside asked us if we had tickets if not they were selling them easily at 50 each.

Kylie who is 33 in May wowed 3,500 devoted fan for nearly two hours.

As the lights faded the crowd began to chant her name and the thunderous appauding and screaming like i've never heard before. The backdrop slipped and revealed a massive ships deck with an 8 piece band and four male and four female dancers and two backing singers.




CONCERT SET LIST


As she came down from the ceiling on a glittering anchor wearing a kimono-style robe which was discarded to reveal the silver tassly bikini and mini skirt we've all seen in the daily papers she started to sing Loveboat, Kookachoo, Hand on your heart and Put yourself in my place. After a costume change into a red leather jacket and tight trousers with yellow flames up the legs she went onto start the hit single On a night like this Can't get you out of my head (new song) a medley of Step back in time, Never too late, Turn it into love, Celebration and the single which has been released in Germany and has a big campaign to get it released in the UK Your disco needs you.
Another costume change and a new backdrop of a Manhatten skyline and wearing white top hat and tails and lying on top of a baby grand piano launches us into a slow version of I should be so lucky/Better the devil you know. Yet another costume change and she does a fabulous version of Olivia Newton John's Physical while slithering around a lapdancers shiny pole. Next came Confide in me whilst sitting on the stairs that light up one by one and yet another costume change into black and silver glittery trouser suit she sings Butterfly, So now goodbye and Kids (without Robbie) but still nontheless good and Shocked. The curtains went down and the crowd screamed for an encore to which she duly obliged with the backset now a space ship she did a three song encore dressed as a air stewardess of Light years, What do I have to do and Spinning around.

The end of the show after the crowd quietened down she thanked all her fan for all the support over the years and was in a hail of streamers and glitter Kylie was gone !!!

Kylie says she's the one that they want

Kylie Minogue desperately wants to play Olivia Newton John in a film about the Grease star's life.

In a bid to convince directors she's the one that they want, the ex-Neighbours actress has even recorded a version of her fellow Australian's big hit Physical.

Kylie still reckons she's got what it takes to be an actress despite appearing in film flops like Street Fighter and horror movie Cut which went straight to video.

A spokesman for Kylie's management has told the paper: "It's a dream role - she really admires Olivia and considers her one of her idols. She's concentrating on her March tour and a new album. But if the role did come up, I'm sure she'd drop everything."

Be sure to let me know what you hear and I'll add it to this page!
