Kylie Minogue Puts on Her Most Musical Performance to Date REVIEW

by Paul Cashmere on March 14, 2019

in News

Kylie Minogue’s Golden Tour has captured the Australian icon at her most musical ever. Kylie tours in the past have been over the top, no budget spared theatrical experiences but the restriction in space at Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl has meant less theatrics and more music.

The Bowl simply doesn’t have space for the massive sets we have seen on preview tours. That has worked in Kylie’s favour. For this show the focus was on the music … and she excelled.

The Golden tour revolves around the Golden album, Kylie’s 2018 release. Golden was a country-tinged side-track for Kylie.

Kylie is now in her Golden-years as a performer and Golden the album is a break from what is expected from her to what is right for her. This tour could be somewhat of a transition for Kylie who, if freed from having to stay musically in character, can now start to venture into other musical territories. Golden proves she can handle the change so it sets her up for an interesting next decade. As a 50-year old, she still has decades in front of her as a performer if she wishes and why not have some fun doing it?

This show recognised some of her benchmark music moments of her career including her ‘coming of age’ song ‘Where The Wild Roses Grow’ and her ‘look at me, I’m not a kid anymore’ classic ‘Confide in Me’.

‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’ also paid homage to Fleetwood Mac with a mashup towards the end with ‘The Chain’.

Donna Summer also got a look-in. ‘The Locomotion’ started with Donna’s disco classic ‘Bad Girls’.

There is a lot of history to Kylie. ‘Especially For You’ is now over 30 years old and still a crowd favourite.

Kylie Minogue has created a lot of shows over the decades. For me, Golden was the best so far.
