Kylie Minogue Made A Golden Return To Oz With Flawless Sydney Show
It was raining glitter in Sydney last night as our pop Princess kicked off her 'Golden' Australian tour.
It's been four long years since the London-based Kylie last toured the country -- and she made it very clear how special it was to be spinning around on her old stomping grounds.
After belting out her early '90s bop, "Better The Devil You Know", Minogue told the Sydney crowd how proud she was to be back.
"I took great pleasure backstage, in our backstage huddle, saying 'Welcome to my home country'," she beamed.
Kylie later revealed that whole Minogue fam was in the audience, which prompted thousands of people simultaneously sigh, 'Awwwwwwww' after learning that her parents -- Ron and Carol -- were cheering on their talented daughter.
Kylie dedicated "Shelby 68" to her dad, a gorgeously wholesome tune she wrote about his beloved car, a 1968 Shelby GT 350.
Minogue continued to rip through her extensive back catalogue, reminding us all that she's been consistently pumping out pop bangers for the last three decades.
From a super sultry, leather-clad rendition of "Slow" to a Studio 54, disco-infused "Locomotion" to a high-energy trip back to the year 2000 with "Spinning Around", the 50-year-old didn't miss a single beat.
And despite performing to thousands, our Kyles managed to make it feel like an intimate club show --but with like, lasers and stunning choreography -- paying extra attention to two very lucky audience members.
The pop icon decided to take a moment to sing directly to a randomly chosen fan, lovingly whispering the chorus to "Where The Wild Roses Grow" to a woman in a stripey shirt named Serena, making everyone in the crowd wish they were Serena.
She also gave a shoutout to the youngest Kylie fan in the crowd -- a munchkin called Poppy who had been brought to the show by her godfather.
Kylie mentioned she'd seen Poppy grooving away to "Raining Glitter" on Instagram and gave her a signed copy of the Golden program.
After multiple explosions of rainbow glitter and thunderous applause, Minogue signed off her encore with "Love At First Sight", ending the whole magnificent, loved-up evening with her 2018 single, "Dancing".
"YESSSSSS SYYYDDDNNNEEEYYYYY!!!!! Thank you for an incredible night!" she wrote on Twitter after the show.
Kylie is set to play Sydney again this evening, followed by dates in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne plus two winery shows in Queensland and NSW before heading back to the UK.
