Kylie: She Puts the Fizz Back into Pop Music

"Thank God for Kylie Minogue.When compared to the recent DVD/cable television extravaganzas mounted by Madonna, Janet Jackson and Britney Spears, the Aussie powerhouse emerges as the clear winner. Madonna looks so deadly serious onstage, the effect is not unlike watching a storm trooper in drag going through rather fey combat moves. Janet is only slightly more animated, and can barely manage to keep her breath as she attempts to sing live to her synchronized dance moves. Britney...well, give the girl time. However, the almost complete lack of live vocals (except on the ballads--where the full extent of her producers' talents are plainly [and painfully] audible) is inexcusable.Kylie, on the other hand, sings live for her entire, exhilirating, nearly 2 hour show, and sings WELL--it can't be easy to maintain your breath control while bouncing around in six-inch kitten heels, yet the diminuative diva manages to carry it off brilliantly. She also is having FUN onstage, and that sense of joy and carefree exuberance carries over to the audience.The main strength in the Minogue camp (emphasis on "camp") is Kylie's refusal to take herself, or her stardom, too seriously. Oh, there's no doubting that Kylie is a true, blazing, God-given Star; she has charisma, talent, beauty and charm to spare. But her genuine niceness, not to mention her fondness for keeping her tongue firmly in cheek, are breaths of fresh air when confronted with "serious artists" like Madonna, or assembly-line, mass-market popsters like Britney.From the 1940's-musical-style opener ("Love Boat") to the kitschily fabulous encore ("Spinning Around"), Kylie's energy level never drops once. Highlights abound: a bright, spangly rendition of her 1989 classic "Hand on Your Heart"; a full-steam-ahead Greatest Hits medley that has the audience practically panting at her feet; a brilliant, twisted-cabaret arrangement of her anthem, "Better the Devil You Know"; an unbelievably erotic take on the Olivia Newton-John ditty, "Physical"; a pumping, sexually-charged "Butterfly"; and the aforementioned "Spinning Around" finale.Another key to Kylie's success: despite her bare midriffs, low-rise leather jeans, tush-grazing hot pants and stilleto heels, she never comes across as sleazy or even overtly sexual; she really may just be the most gosh-darndest nice pop star on the planet (and it's evident that her dancers and band adore her), as well as the most non-threatening. The DVD comes with some nice extras: backstage peeks at the show, which highlight the cheeky humor of both Kylie herself, and her tour crew. It makes sense: to put on such a lighthearted, fun show, you need to surround yourself with lighthearted, fun people.This is, without a doubt, one of the most enjoyable contemporary pop concerts available. Buy it! Kylie delivers."
Better The Kylie You Know!

"Kylie Minogue is so marvelous in concert that us Americans should be begging for a US tour. She couldn't have gotten more creative after naming her tour after one of her hits aptly titled "On A Night Like This". This concert is a timeline of Kylie's singing career. Kylie goes through all her hits a most of her "Light Years" album. She does a medley of fantastic cover songs such as "Celebration" and several other great hits. The worldwide hit "Can't Get You Out" was introduced during this concert. Kylie also does a performance of "Your Disco Needs You" which is by far one of the worst songs I have ever heard, but be that is of may, it's different and creative. Kylie also does a ballad/up-dated version of "I Should Be Lucky" which is superb. In addition, Kylie does an updated version of "Better The Devil You Know" which compared to the original is by far much better. Kylie goes on to sing yet another cover song, "Physical" originally performed by Olivia Newton John. Kylie's version of "Physical" is the turn point in the concert and everything from here on out including the dance moves to the songs become more sexual. Kylie does her own solo version of "Kids" being that Robbie Williams couldn't be there to perform the duet with her. Light Years is a great song to end the show with and the dance moves, outfits, and scenery is extremely creative and memorable. With one last surprise she decides to sing two more songs before ending the show and to my surprise the last one was "spinning Around" which is by far one of Kylie's best tracks ever. This DVD also features the video for "Spinning Around" and if you are asking my opinion, I think it would have been an excellent single here in the United States. See what you have been missing out on in the past 15 years of Kylie's career and check this out."

"Never heard of Kylie until it appeared in my recommendations on Amazon. My musical interests are all over the board but this production was "over the top" when it comes to live performances. It is truly "Vegas" style and the performance is stunning. The DTS mix is very good considering the venue. The video is excellent. There is an extreme amount of pure energy from beginning to end....the dancers are obviously professional performers and they are amazing to watch...if you like POP music just a little (a bit of disco too)then this is a must have DVD."
