In the Fall of 2009 Kylie stormed America to sell out her first ever North American tour. The 6-city tour kicked off in Oakland and made stops in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto and New York, wowing fans and critics alike at each stop. Entertainment Weekly called the show a â€œtwo-hour post-disco fantasia of strobe, bass, and glitterâ€”an all-out spectacle.â€ The New York Times claimed â€œThe concert (was) efficient, clobbering, expensive, generousâ€¦close to an alternate reality.â€ Kylie treated her U.S. fans with a new song â€œBetter Than Todayâ€ which she played for the first time during the tour.
Over the course of her extraordinary 20-plus-year-career, Kylie Minogue has been a global force in pop music and is one of the worldâ€™s most successful female artists with more than 60 million albums sold worldwide, 50 hit singles including the U.S. Billboard dance-chart toppers â€œCanâ€™t Get You Our of My Head,â€ â€œLove At First Sight,â€ â€œSlow,â€ and the Grammy-Award winning â€œCome Into My World.â€ She has received countless awards and accolades including an OBE from the Queen, 8 sold-out world tours including the KylieX2008 tour which traveled to 21 countries throughout Europe, South America, Dubai, Asia, New Zealand and Australia. Minogue has released ten studio albums, three live CDs, eight live concert DVDâ€™s, plus her Greatest Hits, Ultimate Kylie double album and Boombox The Remix Album 2000-2008.
