Re: Kylie Minogue to release double live CD/DVD SHOWGIRL:TOUR + new single,album & book!!
ALSO...the Showgirl Homecoming tour is coming to the end of it's Australian leg, with the final show happening this weekend in Melbourne. Reaction to the show has been amazing, with the crowds leaving the arena bursting with praise after each show. The recording for TV and DVD is now 'in the can' with the nights of the 10th and 11th, again in Melbourne, having been filmed - the 11th for the main bulk of footage, and the 10th for pick-ups and additional crowd footage. We were sad to hear that Kylie didn't perform her now regular 'extras' of a few verses of excluded songs such as Got To Be Certain (one of the very few singles never to have been performed live in recent years... in fact we make it about 15 years...) and her 'The Only Way Is Up' intro to 'I Should Be So Lucky'. She did do these on the 10th though, so we'll hopefully get them on the DVD somewhere!
As we reported quite a while back, Showgirl Homecoming is due to be broadcast in January on TV. Channel 4 have secured exclusive UK rights to broadcast the show, and will first be broadcast on Channel 4 in January 2007, with an additional showing shortly after on E4. Bill Lord and Terry Blamey are executive producers of 'Kylie Showgirl Homecoming Tour' with Marcus Viner as producer and William Baker as director.
"Kylie's Showgirl Tour concert was one of our music highlights in 2005, and so we are delighted that Kylie's spectacular return to the stage will again be broadcast on C4, bringing this emotional journey to a close" says Jules Oldroyd, Head of Scheduling, T4 and Music at C4.
