Australian dance-music diva Kylie Minogue concluded her first U.S. tour with a final show tonight at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. And I was lucky enough to be there.
Minogue put on an incredible two-hour show featuring her hit songs, lots of dancing, costume changes, lasers and a stage lined with giant video screens. It was a spectacle worthy of Las Vegas, so it should come as no surprise that she’s been offered a residency in Sin City, according to various media reports, which offered no specifics.
Minogue’s show was marred by poor acoustics at the Hammerstein Ballroom, which muddied the sound. But Minogue and her crew were able to shine through anyway.
Standout numbers included “Slow,” “I Believe In You,” “In My Arms,” “Love at First Sight,” and a cabaret version of “Locomotion.” I like it when performers play different versions or arrangements of their hit songs in concert. It’s a treat for the fans when musical artists mix things up and don’t stick to the familiar recorded versions.
