Memoirs Of A Kylie Minogue

It is now just under one week way from the launch of Kylie Minogue's new tour KylieX2008, which kicks off in Paris, France on May 6th, and new promo images for the show are starting to be released. A few weeks ago, Kylie posted a behind the scenes video from tour preparations on her website and we got to see a glimpse of Kylie in full geisha finery as she shot background screen video for the show. Today, we get to see a full on photo of Kylie in that amazing pink geisha costume:

She looks like she's just stepped out of a Tokyo tea house. With her elegant kimono, bird's nest hairstyle and porcelain pale complexion, this lady is classic geisha material. But underneath the white foundation and heavy eyeliner is Kylie Minogue experimenting with her latest look. The singer - known for her stunning costume choices - looks breathtaking in a red kimono as she poses as a geisha in a shoot to promote her forthcoming world tour. The tour begins in Paris on May 6th and will reportedly cost more than £10million to stage. It includes shows in Greece, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Luxembourg, Russia, Latvia and Spain, and has already taken over half a million in sales. KylieX2008 is the singer's first major tour since her battle with breast cancer ... KylieX2008 kicks off in the UK in June at the Belfast Odyssey Arena before moving to Glasgow, Newcastle and Manchester ending at the O2 Arena in London. Meanwhile Kylie is said to have abandoned plans to crack America after her latest attempt failed. She reportedly told a friend, "I gave it my best shot. I won't try again."

Well, if the mountain won't come to Mohammed, I guess Trent is gonna have to go to London ;) As I've mentioned before, I am *very* excited to be seeing Kylie Minogue in London later on this year. David and I will be making our way to the UK in July for my birthday with the trip centered around seeing Kylie Minogue at the O2 Arena. It's gonna be real hard to stay way from tour spoilers (well, too many tour spoilers, I'm sure I'll have to check out the press photos from the tour kickoff next week) but I am DYING to see KM live in concert this summer. I have no doubt that Kylie is going to turn it out ... I've seen pretty much all of her tours on DVD so I know the show will be amazing. Woot! If any Frenchies out there get to see Kylie next week and want to send in photos or reports from the show, please do ... KylieX2008 is bound to be a stunner!! [Source]
