Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Kylie Minogue concludes her 2001 On a Night Like This tour with an unashamed pop extravaganza on home ground in Sydney, performing to a huge audience that consists of more adults than teenagers. Kylie has undoubtedly matured over the years, too, and--apart from a brief stint believing she could become a "serious" artist--appears perfectly happy in her role as the Princess of Pop. The joy of Kylie is that she has become all things to all people, offered up in a perfectly petite package: for women it's all about adulation; the men are offered a fantasy figure; and she simultaneously manages to be a gay icon without becoming overtly camp. It's clear that the years of work as a performer have paid off--her vocals are much stronger and more professional, and to demonstrate she performs two old favorites, "I Should Be So Lucky" and "Better the Devil You Know," as serious pieces. In true showstopping style, we're offered a multitude of costume changes: from hot-pant mania to refined suits and rock-chick leather, Kylie inevitably appears looking great. --Nikki Disney

5.0 out of 5 stars Kylie: She Puts the Fizz Back into Pop Music April 5, 2002
Format:DVD
Thank God for Kylie Minogue.
When compared to the recent DVD/cable television extravaganzas mounted by Madonna, Janet Jackson and Britney Spears, the Aussie powerhouse emerges as the clear winner. Madonna looks so deadly serious onstage, the effect is not unlike watching a storm trooper in drag going through rather fey combat moves. Janet is only slightly more animated, and can barely manage to keep her breath as she attempts to sing live to her synchronized dance moves. Britney...well, give the girl time. However, the almost complete lack of live vocals (except on the ballads--where the full extent of her producers' talents are plainly [and painfully] audible) is inexcusable.
Kylie, on the other hand, sings live for her entire, exhilirating, nearly 2 hour show, and sings WELL--it can't be easy to maintain your breath control while bouncing around in six-inch kitten heels, yet the diminuative diva manages to carry it off brilliantly. She also is having FUN onstage, and that sense of joy and carefree exuberance carries over to the audience.
The main strength in the Minogue camp (emphasis on "camp") is Kylie's refusal to take herself, or her stardom, too seriously. Oh, there's no doubting that Kylie is a true, blazing, God-given Star; she has charisma, talent, beauty and charm to spare. But her genuine niceness, not to mention her fondness for keeping her tongue firmly in cheek, are breaths of fresh air when confronted with "serious artists" like Madonna, or assembly-line, mass-market popsters like Britney.
From the 1940's-musical-style opener ("Love Boat") to the kitschily fabulous encore ("Spinning Around"), Kylie's energy level never drops once.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better The Kylie You Know! July 28, 2002
Format:DVD
Kylie Minogue is so marvelous in concert that us Americans should be begging for a US tour. She couldn't have gotten more creative after naming her tour after one of her hits aptly titled "On A Night Like This". This concert is a timeline of Kylie's singing career. Kylie goes through all her hits a most of her "Light Years" album. She does a medley of fantastic cover songs such as "Celebration" and several other great hits. The worldwide hit "Can't Get You Out" was introduced during this concert. Kylie also does a performance of "Your Disco Needs You" which is by far one of the worst songs I have ever heard, but be that is of may, it's different and creative. Kylie also does a ballad/up-dated version of "I Should Be Lucky" which is superb. In addition, Kylie does an updated version of "Better The Devil You Know" which compared to the original is by far much better. Kylie goes on to sing yet another cover song, "Physical" originally performed by Olivia Newton John. Kylie's version of "Physical" is the turn point in the concert and everything from here on out including the dance moves to the songs become more sexual. Kylie does her own solo version of "Kids" being that Robbie Williams couldn't be there to perform the duet with her. Light Years is a great song to end the show with and the dance moves, outfits, and scenery is extremely creative and memorable. With one last surprise she decides to sing two more songs before ending the show and to my surprise the last one was "spinning Around" which is by far one of Kylie's best tracks ever. This DVD also features the video for "Spinning Around" and if you are asking my opinion, I think it would have been an excellent single here in the United States. See what you have been missing out on in the past 15 years of Kylie's career and check this out.

3. koochachoo

4. hand on your heart

5. put yourself in my place - kylie slows it down

6. on a night like this - very sexy song.

7. medley (step back in time/never too late/wouldn't change a thing/turn it into love/celebration) - kylie goes back in time with these great hits

8. can't get you out of my head - one of my favorites. she introduced this song on this tour

9. your disco needs you - you gotta love it.

10. i should be so lucky - she sings the 1st verse and the chorus. the song is slower and intimate

11. better the devil you know - she makes this song into a big band version. really sounds great.

12. so now goodbye - my favorite song on the light years cd. also love the performance.

13. physical - a slower sexy version of the olivia newton-john hit. my favorite song performed on tour.

14. butterfly - the peformance was kind of like a huge orgy-thing going on. pretty hot!

15. confide in me - pretty good peformance

16. kids - she sings with both of her back-up singers. kindasexy performance

17. shocked - another huge orgy-thing going on when kylie does the rap. love the song.

18. ilght years - cool futuristic performance and nice set

19. what do i have to do? - i like the faster mix that she sang

20. spinning around - the encore of the show. kylie appears in a sexy outfit and the performance was awesome.

overall, the show was fun, sexy, and awesome.
