Kylie Generates A Fever In Fans

2009_05_kylie.jpg Kylie is coming to Chicago! What? Kylie who? Oh right, you're North Americans. We understand most folks don't realize what a superstar Kylie Minogue is in the rest of the world -- we feel it's similar to what we call "Robbie Williams Syndrome" -- but at least most of you are familiar with her through her infectious single "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" that accompanied endless Bally's commercials a few years ago. And to you folks who are even older, she sang that bubblegum rendition of "The Loco-Motion." In-between those two songs she underwent a number of changes zipping from soap actress cum pop-tart, semi-serious indie chanteuse, disco diva, and finally arriving at her current mix of electro-tweaked pop.

Us? We love all of her incarnations.

The thing is, she never tours the U.S., and since she has one of those multimedia glam live stage shows but no mass following in the States, we can't say we could blame her. So we're tweaked to discover she is finally doing a brief six city tour in the fall and Chicago makes the cut with her landing in town on October 7 at the Congress Theatre! We can not wait.

Check out one of our favorite Kylie videos from her return to disco period after the jump.
