Kylie Announces American Tour Dates!
We are just a few months until the pop deity Kylie Minogue brings her highly anticipated Aphrodite – Live 2011 show to North America!
The tour will kick off April 28th in Montreal and end May 22nd in Las Vegas, playing such markets as Houston, Orlando and Mexico City along the way.
Team Kylie did want us to let fans know, though, NOT to expect the same exact staging that we talked about this weekend for the European version of the show.
A source in Team Minogue tells us, “It should be noted the U.S. leg will be a little different than the European leg. The water element will not be a part of the U.S. staging as the U.S. leg plays in smaller venues and will be a more intimate production than the arena shows in Europe. The show still promises to be a spectacle and will be grand and fabulous as all Kylie shows are. The North American dates will have their own special staging and surprises.”
Sounds amazeballs to us!!!

(New York, NY ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ Jan. 11, 2011) ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ International Pop Star Kylie Minogue has announced North American dates for her Aphrodite ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ Live 2011 World Tour beginning April 28th in Montreal through May 22nd where Kylie will close the tour at the legendary Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV (full schedule below). The tour starts Feb. 19th in Denmark and will play in arenas throughout Europe & Japan before hitting Canada, U.S. and Mexico. The Aphrodite ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ Live 2011 tour promises to be an absolute landmark in the career of Kylie Minogue who is renowned for her groundbreaking live shows. Pre-sale tickets for the U.S. leg of the tour begin on January 14th for American Express card holders and Kylie├óΓé¼Γäós fanbase with public on sale beginning January 22nd.
├óΓé¼┼ôThe reaction to ├óΓé¼╦£Aphrodite├óΓé¼Γäó has been absolutely incredible and has inspired me and my creative team to develop a new show that will take all of us on a euphoric journey of joy, excitement and glamour. I can├óΓé¼Γäót wait to get on the road and see all my fans in 2011,├óΓé¼┬¥ said Kylie.
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 ├óΓé¼┼ôtwo-hour post-disco fantasia of strobe, bass, and glitter├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥an all-out spectacle.├óΓé¼┬¥ The New York Times claimed ├óΓé¼┼ôThe concert (was) efficient, clobbering, expensive, generous├óΓé¼┬ªclose to an alternate reality├óΓé¼┬¥; high praise indeed and the 2011 show promises to be bigger and better in every way!
After the run-away success of the last tour Kylie will be presenting the North American version of Aphrodite ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ Live 2011 in more intimate rooms in the States, where possible, including a much anticipated return to the Hammerstein Ballroom in NY and the Hollywood Bowl in LA.
The North American dates are being presented by Logo TV and produced by Los Angeles-based concert promotion firm Bill Silva Presents (BSP), who also produced the 2009 North American tour.
