Kylie Minogue, the Australian pop princess who burst onto the music scene in 1988 with "Locomotion," just announced a 2011 North American tour. But even though Miami's been named the 15th Gayest City in America, the Magic City didn't make the tour schedule. Instead, fans will have to hitch a ride to Sunrise's BankAtlantic Center on May 7.
According to The Guardian, Minogue's tour, Les Follies, features a heart-shaped stage, several dancers, eight acrobats, and 30 water fountains. The 42-year old singer says it's "the most technologically advanced and extravagant stage that has ever been built to date."
Aphordite, Minogue's eleventh studio album, was released in the summer of 2010, and debuted at the top of the UK Albums Chart. "The reaction to Aphrodite has been absolutely incredible," she told The Guardian, "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."
Now how much does a joyful, exciting, glamorous, and euphoric journey cost? Anywhere between $66.50 and $138.25 (after fees) for the Bank Atlantic Center show. Tickets go on sale to the general public on January 22 at 10am, though die-hard fans with an American Express card can buy tickets as early as tomorrow, January 14, via Ticketmaster.
