We are not really sure how she managed to sing "Locomotion" and never make it to the U.S. to tour, but Australian pop diva Kylie Minogue, has finally announced the dates of her first ever North American tour. Minogue will be making a six-show run through the U.S. and Canada starting in late September.
The first show of Minogue's tour will kick off on September 30 at the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA and will end on October 11 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Tickets for the tour go on sale on the weekend of May 15.
"I've wanted to tour in America and Canada for years and know that fans have been waiting a long time for this," said Minogue. "I'm thrilled that the opportunity has finally arrived."
Minogue is currently recording her 11th studio album and will be performing on the Today show on May 8. In the past, Minogue has seen blossoming success around the globe, having been on eight sold out world tours, but has struggled to gain as strong of a fan-following in the U.S. "Kylie has such a successful career outside of North America that it has taken quite a while to find a window in her schedule for the U.S. and Canada," said Bill Silva, Minogue's tour promoter. "Her amazing fans in North America will be well rewarded for their patience when they experience her show and its entire spectacle. We are confident in the tour's success, and hope that Kylie will make this the first of many tours to our shores."
