KYLIE ANNOUNCES EUROPEAN TOUR

Kylie Minogue has announced a tour of Europe to commence in May 2008!

Despite reports that doctors advised Kylie not to go on tour to remain in good health, Ms Minogue will still bring her new album 'X' to the stage. "I am putting together a show that is going to be a new and exciting experience for both the audience and myself," Kylie said on her website. "The eclectic mix of sounds on 'X' is affording me an opportunity to explore and develop a new live show that will be fresh, exhilarating and innovative."

Kylie also said that the tour will still include the old favourites. "...'X' will be a look to the future but will definitely include favourites alongside the new."

No Australian tour has been confirmed, however it is likely that she will tour again here late next year!
