How Kylie pulled off the perfect pop comeback — again

Recommended Posts

A lot’s changed for Kylie Minogue since she last toured Australia — but the opening night of her Golden tour proved we should never count her out.

 

For years, Kylie Minogue was locked in a fierce battle — with herself.

Her singles topped the charts and her massive arena tours became ever more spectacular. By 2011’s Aphrodite: Les Folies, she was performing to fans from atop a giant Busby Berkeley-esque water fountain. This was pop music at its most OTT.

But where on earth do you go from there?

For a time, her returns diminished. Her struggle to stay ahead of the crowd perhaps reached its nadir with 2014 single Sexercize, its video showing a leotard-clad Minogue undulating on a fit ball while instructing her lover to “Beat all your best times / Let me see you sexercize / Come on, baby bounce, bounce.”

Love At First Sight it was not. Clearly, something had to change.

A few years later — and with a well-publicised breakup to fuel her creative juices — Kylie returned with her most personal (indeed, she co-wrote every song) album in years, last year’s chart topper Golden.

And its accompanying tour is the first time (2012’s brief ‘Anti Tour’ aside) Aussie fans have seen her playing venues smaller than arenas in more than 20 years. This time around, she’s playing wineries and this, the first of two relatively intimate shows at Sydney’s ICC Theatre.

I think Golden reinvigorated Kylie and that the next album could be out next year (hopefully, I don't wanna wait 3 more years) fall5

Also Sexercize is a huge guilty bop for me katy7

I was at the show they're reviewing (only five rows from the front cheryl1) and the crowd was honestly electric. You'd have thought this was her first appearance in a decade.
