Kylie Anti-Tour...

I went to see Kylie Minogue perform her Anti Tour last night at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo and it was brilliant. A brilliant show.

Billed as a gig for the uber-fans it was anything but. I knew half the songs really well, recognised another quarter more of them and the rest were a revelation. Surrounded by epic fans, sexy men and good chums (some being all of the above) we sang, danced and sang some more.

I'm guessing the song choices suited her voice better too as there was no squeaking like you ocassionally get in the stadium gigs. And without all that dancing she wasn't out of breath either. She was obviously having a fab time and that was infectious I think. Normally at a gig people are thinking, "Oh hurry up and play your hits". But not last night. Knowing that it was an eclectic choice sort of took the pressue off and everyone enjoyed it more.

A gal at the top of her game she wowed the crowd and had us whipped into a frenzy in a her laid back ripped denim, vintage T-shirt and pearly cap. We counted ourselves very lucky, lucky, lucky to be there.

Big hello and thanks to Stephen, Brendan, Stuart, Marcus, Ben, Nau, Terry et al
