Kylie Minogue is back, having now performed two shows in Sydney, Australia. She is set to perform 18 more this year in her native Australia, then 12 in the UK next year. Not only is Kylie back performing, but her ‘Ultimate Kylie’ album released in December 2004 is back in the Australian Charts (ARIA) at number 8.
In a revised show that borrows its roots from the Showgirl Tour she was forced to cancel, Showgirl Homecoming has all new outfits and several song changes. In addition, Kylie also performs a new track called ‘White Diamonds.’ In the second show, Bono from U2 did a duet with Kylie during her song ‘Kids.’ ‘Especially For You’ was dedicated to her family and especially Dannii Minogue.
Outfits included a brand new feather extravaganza by Lido of Paris to a beautiful red dress and a leopard print ‘catsuit.’ The show also included a 20 minute intermission due to Kylie’s continued recovery. Overall, including the intermission, the show was about 2 hours and 30 minutes in length.
