Frontier Touring and Roundhouse Entertainment are thrilled to announce that iconic Australian pop princess KYLIE MINOGUE will bring her Golden Tour to Australia, performing a string of headline shows at arenas and outdoor venues across the country next March. The tour will include playing a day on the green concerts for the very first time.
The Golden Tour marks Kylie’s first shows since 2015’s Kiss Me Once Tour and her first time performing outdoor headline concerts in Australia. Cementing her reputation for a unique and captivating live show, each performance on the Golden Tour is a narrative connecting all Kylie’s hits into one glorious story.
The tour includes three a day on the green shows – Sir James Mitchell Park in Perth WA on Saturday March 9, Bimbadgen, Hunter Valley NSW on Saturday March 16 and at Sirromet Wines, Mt Cotton QLD on Sunday March 17.
KYLIE will be joined by special guests JAKE SHEARS – of Scissor Sisters fame – and Australian singer-songwriter, HATCHIE, with a further special guest to be announced soon.
“Quite frankly, she was breathtaking … this woman is the epitome of what hard work and giving the fans what they want can get you.” – Metro
“The Golden Tour is AMAZING … a must-see … Kylie Minogue put on of the best pop shows I’ve ever experienced … and she looks incredible.” – ChronicleLive ★★★★★
“… the Golden show might just be her most stylish effort yet.” – The Scotsman
With an incredible thirty years in the music industry and fourteen studio albums to her name, Kylie has dominated the music charts with five number one albums in both Australia and the UK, sixteen ARIA Awards and an induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2011.
Kylie’s most recent release, the Nashville-recorded and country-influenced album Golden, (out now via Liberator Music/BMG), debuted at number one on the ARIA and UK Charts. The result of an intensive working trip to the home of country music, Kylie worked alongside key writers Steve McEwan and Amy Wadge, with producer Sky Adams. The result was an outstanding personal album that blends Kylie’s signature pop style with a Tennessee influence; this exciting change of style is sure to enchant audiences next March when performed live.
Tracks from Golden, like Dancing and Stop Me From Falling, fit seamlessly in the tour setlist alongside Kylie’s endless pop classics, including Can’t Get You Out Of My Head, Spinning Around, The Loco-Motion and Love At First Sight.
“Underneath the bangers, costumes and confetti canons is an artist who craves to feel connected and delights at bringing joy.”– Time Out London
“Pop queen shines on golden year victory lap.” – Evening Standard
Joining Kylie across all Australian shows will be close friend JAKE SHEARS. As the lead singer and a primary songwriter for the multi-platinum selling glam rock band Scissor Sisters, Jake shot to fame off the back of hit singles such as Take Your Mama, I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ and Comfortably Numb. Earlier this year he made his debut on Broadway in the lead role in Kinky Boots, released his debut book and memoir Boys Keep Swinging and released his self-titled debut album in August, featuring the single Creep City.
Kicking things off at a day on the green will be Brisbane’s HATCHIE. It’s been a huge past year for the talented singer-songwriter, with her debut EP Sugar & Spice winning praise across the globe. The five-track collection, which has notched up 7.5 million streams and counting, includes singles Try, Sure, Sugar & Spice, Sleep (Pitchfork’s “Best New Track”) and Bad Guy. Her latest single Adored is already a favourite at triple j and showcases another exciting chapter for Hatchie.
The Golden Tour is the first opportunity for Australian fans to see Kylie’s new music performed live in addition to a number of classic hit singles. Fans are encouraged to secure tickets early to avoid disappointment!
