Tonight (September 24th 2014) Kylie triumphantly opened her Kiss Me Once European tour, taking to the stage at Liverpool’s Echo Arena.
The three tracks on Sleepwalker are: Glow, Wait and Break This Heartbreak. Once the tracks were recorded both Kylie and Garibay felt the tracks had a strong cinematic potential, leading to the creation of Sleepwalker. The fourth new track is Chasing Ghosts which features in the live show itself. Kylie wanted to record these tracks as something for the fans to be able to enjoy immediately, all four tracks are up online and available to download now, here: https://soundcloud.com/kylieminogue/sets/kylie-garibay
True to form, the live is show is nothing short of spectacular, complete with a sugar coated hot pink life size dolls house, an incredible light show, giant glowing red lips, showgirls decorated in red lobsters and much, much more. The impressive set design by Alan Macdonald is inspired by Bauhaus architecture and the neons and windows of peep shows and strip clubs.
An array of glittering costumes were debuted this evening including a couture gown by Marchesa, an incredible silver and blue mirrored dress by Julien Macdonald and a Dolce and Gabbana corset accompanied by a sparkling Swarovski crystal headpiece.
Kylie said of the tour:
‘For me, it’s the ultimate because you are really living in the moment. All aspects of what I do have to come together in a live environment, which is at once thrilling and nerve-wracking! Having so much shared energy in one place is amazing. All cast and crew come with as much energy as the audience so it’s a case of chicken or the egg….we don’t know who was first but we are all there for the same thing - united in that space and time. Also, I am aware that almost everyone in the audience has played a part in my life, and I in theirs, although we have never met.’
