The Showgirl Returns
I'm sitting here with Kylie Minogue's Showgirl Tour DVD blaring in the background, wondering what I'm going to write my first official blog about, and it hits me...Duh, write about Kylie's triumphant return to the stage. After a year of treatment since being diagnosed with breast cancer last May, the Impossible (to defeat apparently) Princess is heading back out to wrap up the Australian leg of her tour. It promises to be quite an emotional home-coming for Kylie who received most of her treatment in Paris while staying with her (very handsome) beau Olivier Martinez. The shows will start in her hometown of Sydney on November 11th, wrap up in Melbourne on December 17th, and then it's off to the UK to do a six night engagement at Wembley Stadium in January 2007 (of which the first two nights announced sold out in an astounding six minutes).
Kylie is by far one of the most (seemingly) genuine stars in the public eye today. Always beautiful, upbeat, positive, sparkly eyed and ready to give to her audience. She (and her music) just make you want to have a good time. Someday she will bring one of her tours to Canada and I will be a happy boy. Until then, Welcome Back Showgirl! I missed you.
