Get excited America! Kylie Minogue has FINALLY announced the dates for the North American leg of her 2011 international tour. I flew home to Chicago to Kylie in October of 2009 and it might have been the most fun I've ever had at an arena concert. Not only did Kylie sound LOVELY live but she fed off the energy of the crowd. It was ELECTRIC.
NOW, she's coming back and I have decided...I NEED to be there. NEED. NEEEEED! The tour kicks off on April 28th in Montreal and ends May 22nd in Vegas. It's not a long tour but it's looking like it's going to be an AMAZING tour, according to the Facebook page for the tour:
FACT 18: 40,000 litres of water will be used during the show.UM. Water fountains? Heart shaped stage? Acrobats? 'Splash Zone'? No word yet on if the staging of the tour will be exactly the same in North America as it is in Europe but this sounds absolutely beautiful! If you missed Kylie during her first ever North American tour in 2009 you have NO excuse not to see her this time around. Here are the details:
FACT 19: 30 water fountains will be incorporated within the stage.
FACT 20: The stage is heart-shaped.
