The Single Showgirl

So Kylie’s now single. Well I knew it would happen. The moment I realised I was in the same room as her I knew it was a matter of time before she’d come to her senses and ditch Oliver for the fine specimen of man that stood before her.

Of course, I’m completely ignoring that fact that there were a few thousand other people in that same room too.

One of the great things about seeing a band live is that feeling that for those few hours you’re experiencing something that only a few thousand will ever see. Your own gig with the band. The things they say, heck even some of what they sing will only ever be heard by the ears of those attending that particular concert.

Sadly with Kylie you knew that everything she said and did was totally scripted and rehearsed. Still, put this observation aside and Kylie: Showgirl Homecoming was one of the most amazing sound & light shows I will ever see. The delicious costumes, the fantastic songs, stunning dance routines and sublime light show.

In the last 10 minutes Kylie finally let down her guard, finished her script and talked to us. She picked out people from the audience and chatted to them, poked fun at a few and even entered into an impromptu song with sister Danni. It’s a shame that she didn’t do this more throughout the 2 hours as her great personality completely shined through and gave hints as to how intimate the concert could have been.

Amazing concert, amazing lady and a fantastic night out.
