Following days of speculation, it’s been officially announced that multi-award-winning singer and songwriter Kylie Minogue will be performing in South Africa in July.
The gay icon will put on her Aphrodite Live world tour at the Sun City Super Bowl on the 8th and 9th July and at the Grand Arena in Cape Town on the 13th and 14th July.
The star has been touring since February this year and her show has received rave reviews. The Telegraph in the UK said, “Kylie is not just a pop star anymore she is a goddess.”
“I have been looking for an opportunity to perform in South Africa for a very long time so I am really delighted that I can now confirm I will be visiting Johannesburg and Cape Town in July this year,” said Minogue.
“I’ve been having a wonderful time touring Aphrodite and I’m absolutely thrilled I will be able to bring Aphrodite Live to South Africa.”
If the entertainer’s past shows are a preview of what South African fans can anticipate during her SA visit then they are in for an extravagant treat. The elaborate costumes, dazzling set, immaculate sound and great visuals are all part of the show’s architecture.
Kylie acknowledges that she is considered a gay icon and first became aware of her gay following in 1988 when several drag queens performed to her music in a Sydney pub.
Since then her following has swelled and she often performs at gay venues around the world indulging her most favourite impersonators. In 1994 she headlined Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
The Australian recording artist released her eleventh studio album Aphrodite in July 2010. Minogue is the first women in UK history to have a number one album in four consecutive decades, selling over 60 million albums worldwide.
