BURBANK, Calif. -- After first announcing to Access Hollywood that she’d be touring North America again in 2011, Aussie pop princess Kylie Minogue announced Tuesday the dates for her upcoming “Aphrodite – Live 2011” tour.
The tour will begin April 28 in Montreal and run through May 22 where Kylie will close the tour at the legendary Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, NV. Kylie’s world tour starts February 19 in Denmark and will play in arenas throughout Europe & Japan before hitting Canada, U.S. and Mexico. Pre-sale tickets for the U.S. leg of the tour begin on January 14 for American Express cardholders and Kylie’s fanbase with public on sale beginning January 22.
“The reaction to ‘Aphrodite’ 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’t wait to get on the road and see all my fans in 2011,” Kylie said in a press release.
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. After the run-away success of the last tour Kylie will be presenting the North American version of “Aphrodite – 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.
Kylie’s eleventh album ”Aphrodite” was released in July and debuted at #19 in the U.S., marking her highest U.S. chart position since 2002’s “Fever.” “Aphrodite” became Kylie’s fifth #1 album in the UK, hitting the top spot a full 22 years to the week since her debut album “Kylie” entered the charts. The album also made Kylie the first solo artist in the history of the UK charts to have a #1 album in four different decades. Around the globe ”Aphrodite” debuted in the top 10 in 13 different countries.
