Kylie Minogue Announces First-Ever North American Tour

kylie-usa-2009OMG OMG OMG.

From the press release:

Over the course of her extraordinary 20-year-career, Kylie has undertaken 8 sold-out world tours including last year’s KylieX2008 tour which traveled to 21 countries throughout Europe, South America, Dubai, Asia, New Zealand and Australia, generating an estimated $70,000,000 in ticket sales. Kylie couldn’t be more excited about her first ever tour through North America.

And – drum roll, please – the dates:

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009 – Fox Theater, Oakland, CA (San Francisco Bay Area)
Saturday, October 3rd, 2009 – Pearl Theatre, Las Vegas, NV
Sunday, October 4th, 2009 – Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles , CA
Wednesday, October 7th, 2009 – Congress Theatre, Chicago, IL
Friday, October 9th, 2009 – Air Canada Centre, Toronto, Canada
Sunday, October 11th, 2009 – Hammerstein Ballroom, New York, NY

I don’t even want to think about how difficult it’s going to be to get those tickets. And, yes, while having only six dates is totally lame, she’s so poorly managed in the states that I can’t blame her. (Case in point: an LA-based PR firm has been hired to promote the tour and the website they created isn’t even readable (ok, they fixed it).)

All tickets (except for the AmEx pre-sale thingee) go on sale Saturday May 16, 2009, 10 AM local time, although TicketMaster isn’t showing all the dates yet for the pre-sale or regular sale.
