Kylie Minogue Tickets
Details of Kylie Minogue and the Ticket Luck value
Kylie Ann Minogue, OBE (born 28 May 1968) is an Australian, Grammy and Brit award-winning pop singer, songwriter and actress. Minogue rose to prominence in the late 1980s through her role in the Australian television soap opera Neighbours, before she commenced her career as a pop artist in the late '80s. According to Warner Music Australia, Minogue has sold over 65 million albums worldwide.
Signed to a contract by British songwriters and producers Stock, Aitken & Waterman in 1988, she achieved a string of hit records throughout the world. Her popularity began to decline during the early 1990s, leading her to part company from Stock, Aitken & Waterman in 1995. During the mid to late 90s, Minogue distanced herself from her earlier work and attempted to establish herself as a credible and independent performer and songwriter. Her projects were widely publicized, but her albums failed to attract a substantial audience and resulted in the lowest sales of her career to date. She returned to popularity as a dance pop artist in 2000, and became well-known for her music videos and expensively mounted stage shows.
In Australia and Europe, Minogue has become one of her generation's most recognizable celebrities and femininity symbols. In Australia, after being dismissed early in her career by some critics, she has been acclaimed for her achievements.
Kylie Minogue was born in Melbourne, Australia to a family with varied interests. She is the eldest of three children; her sister, Dannii, is also a pop singer, and her brother, Brendan, works as a news cameraman in Australia.
The Minogue sisters began their careers as children on Australian television, and from the age of twelve, Kylie appeared in soap operas such as Skyways and The Sullivans. She gave her first singing performance in 1983, at the age of 15, on the weekly music programme Young Talent Time, a show on which Dannii featured regularly. Kylie was overshadowed by her younger sister until achieving success in 1986 with her role in the soap opera Neighbours.
During a Fitzroy Football Club benefit concert with other Neighbours cast members, Minogue performed "The Loco-Motion" and was signed to a recording contract with Mushroom Records in 1987. Released as a single, and retitled "Locomotion", the Australian recording spent seven weeks at number one on the Australian music charts, and was the highest selling single in Austria for the 1980s. Its success resulted in Minogue traveling to London with Mushroom Records executive Gary Ashley to work with Stock, Aitken & Waterman. They knew little of Minogue and had forgotten that she was arriving; as a result, they wrote "I Should Be So Lucky" while she waited outside the studio. The song reached number one in the UK and Australia and was a hit in many parts of the world. Her debut album Kylie, a collection of dance-oriented pop tunes, reached number one on the British albums chart and became the year's highest-selling album. It sold over seven million copies worldwide, with most sales occurring in Europe and Asia, and it contained six successful singles. In the United States and Canada the album did not sell strongly, however the re-recorded version of "The Loco-Motion" reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart and number one on the Canadian Singles Chart. "It's No Secret", released only in the U.S., peaked at number thirty-seven in early 1990. In late 1988 Minogue left Neighbours in order to concentrate fully on her music career.
Minogue's contract had been for three albums, but she was persuaded to record a fourth. Let's Get to It (1991) was designed to broaden her appeal by presenting a diverse range of ballads and slower dance songs. Despite generally positive reviews it failed to make the British Top 10, although the album spawned two UK Top 5 singles: "If You Were with Me Now" and a cover of "Give Me Just a Little More Time".
By this time Minogue had fulfilled the requirements of her contract and elected not to renew it. She had often expressed the viewpoint that she was stifled by Stock, Aitken and Waterman, and later compared the experience to her time with Neighbours, saying all they wanted her to do was "learn your lines perform your lines, no time for questions, promote the product". Realizing that her fans were growing apathetic towards the Stock, Aitken and Waterman formula, and that she could only develop as an artist if she broke away from them, she decided to leave. She agreed to record three new songs to be included on the Greatest Hits album, which was released to coincide with her departure from them in 1992.
Minogue and Deconstruction Records parted company and following a duet with the Pet Shop Boys' on their Nightlife album, she signed with Parlophone in April 1999. Her album Light Years (2000) was strongly influenced by 1970s disco artists, such as Donna Summer and Village People and included several songs written by Guy Chambers and Robbie Williams who imbued their lyrics with humour. New Musical Express wrote: "Kylie's capacity for reinvention is staggering" and summarised the album as "sheer joy" and "what she does best". It generated career-best reviews for Minogue and quickly became a success throughout Asia, Australia and Europe and sold over two million copies worldwide
On 11 November 2006, Minogue resumed her Showgirl - Homecoming Tour with a performance in Sydney, joking with the crowd that she was, after an 18 month delay, "fashionably late". She had told journalists prior to the concert that she would be highly emotional, and she cried before dedicating the song "Especially for You" to her father, a survivor of prostate cancer. Although her dance routines had been reworked to accommodate her medical condition, and longer breaks were introduced between sections of the show to conserve her strength, the media reported that Minogue performed energetically, with the Sydney Morning Herald describing the show as an "extravaganza" and "nothing less than a triumph".
In January 2007 Madame Tussaud's in London unveiled a new waxwork of Minogue. This is her fourth waxwork and only Queen Elizabeth II has had more models created.
In Feburary Minogue opened the "Kylie Exhibition" at the V&A Museum which documented all the many outfits she has worn over the years from the overalls in Neighbours to the pink John Galliano corset of Showgirl - The Homecoming Tour. She also held a private party on August 3 to celebrate 20 years since "Locomation" went to number 1, marking the start of her musical career. It was also on this night that she launched her second perfume, Sweet Darling.
Minogue released her tenth studio album, X, on 27 November 2007. She was awarded with an OBE on 29 December 2007 for services to music.
