Kylie Minogue 2
What do Kylie Minogue and Queen Elizabeth II have in common?
It’s not the title of ‘most played female artist on UK radio’, nor is it the accolade of having nearly 50 international chart hits. The correct answer is that they hold the prestigious distinction of having the most waxworks on display at Madame Tussauds in London—her Majesty having five models to Kylie’s four.
Away from waxwork trivia, you must have realised by now that the Australian poppet is coming to Barcelona. This time she will be arriving as part of her Aphrodite tour, spreading more Kylie love and creating yet another generation of hysterical fans. See, it’s easy to forget that Miss Minogue has been entertaining audiences since the late Seventies. Some of you might even remember her days as Charlene from Neighbours and her romance with Jason Donovan. They were the hottest couple at the time but my, do times change. Kylie now has an OBE to go with 11 studio albums and is the only female artist to achieve UK number one albums in four consecutive decades. Jason can regularly be seen on Iceland food adverts.
Love will be in the air when the Aphrodite tour touches down at Palau Sant Jordi but then what else would you expect from the 21st-century equivalent of the Greek goddess of beauty and sexuality? Kylie’s latest album material will be played alongside old classics for an evening of electropop ecstacy; certainly one for all the lovers.
