Kylie Comes To America

09:40 AM Wednesday 5/6/09 |   |

She’s filled arenas across the globe for more than two decades, but pop icon Kylie Minogue has never graced the stages of North America – until now.

Kylie will kick off her 6-city tour September 30 at the Fox Theater in Oakland, Calif. Other lucky destinations on the trek include Las Vegas (October 3), Los Angeles (October 4), Chicago (October 7), Toronto (October 9) and New York City (October 11).

Tickets go on sale the weekend of May 15, but American Express Cardmembers will have a chance to buy tickets beginning May 7. Members of Kylie.com’s mailing list will also receive an e-mail with info on presale tickets.

Over the course of her 20-year career, Kylie has sold more than 40 million albums, scored 50 hit singles – including North American chart toppers “Can’t Get You Out of My Head,” “Love at First Sight,” and Grammy-winner “Come Into My World” – and picked up dozens of awards and an OBE from Queen Elizabeth.

The singer has also sold out eight world tours including last year’s KylieX2008 tour which traveled to 21 countries throughout Europe, South America, Dubai, Asia, New Zealand and Australia, generating an estimated $70,000,000 in ticket sales.

Now she’s finally setting her sights on North America.

“I’ve wanted to tour in America and Canada for years and know that fans have been waiting a long time for this,” Minogue said. “I’m thrilled that the opportunity has finally arrived.”

I am so there, but I’m curious about one thing.

Since Kylie normally travels with a production that rivals those of Madonna and Britney Spears, it’ll be interesting to see how she adapts that to fit the smaller venues she’s booked into for this tour.

    I do not agree with nelson on this one.  kylie has never toured in the US and there is just no previous information on how she will do.  there have been numerous tours of non-American artists (and i would imagine j-lo would be the same), where everyone in the room during tour bookings THOUGHT she would do big numbers and it failed.  i think they are just being tentative and thats why it is small venues.

    on the other hand, you are right about the scalpers, they will get their usual big ticket numbers in comparison to the venue sizes, and the fan will be the one taking the hits.  tough situation indeed.

    to continue this will only help scalpers and hurt the honest fans who have no shot in hell of getting tickets. Makes me feel that the artists are really "in bed" with the scalpers

    what a joke of a tour-- 6 shows for someone that has never played in the USA
