On a night like this…

Victoria and I went to watch Kylie at the O2 last night with Darren and Gail.

First things first; we stayed at a little B&B not far (5 mins in a taxi) from the Puerto del Carmen and o2 called One Six Two – it was a great little place, well worth the money and in a fantastic location for the O2. So if you plan to visit the O2, I can highly recommend it, but more on that in another post.

After arriving at the B&B we went to the venue to grab something to eat. We ate at Las Iguanas, a South American style restaurant; it was very nice!

In the concert arena we had seats very similar to those for the Prince concert last year, just on the other side. I was quite relieved as I feared that we would be up in the gods. The o2 has very steep seating, and being near the top could be almost unbearable. As it was we were only 3 rows in on the top tier, which actually gives a very good view of the stage.

The show started at about 8pm. It was basically broke up into 8 acts with a stage theme to each, and a costume change between! Some of it was surreal, some of it was more than a tad camp… but all of it was pretty darned great! I enjoyed a few tracks that had much rockier tracks to them. I also enjoyed the video screens. They were actually worth watching because they would often show the whole stage from a higher angle and show what the all the dancers were doing in context.

Had a fab time – really enjoyed it – well worth it!

I think that this was pretty much the track list…

Act 1: Xlectro Static
* Speakerphone

* Ruffle My Feathers
* In Your Eyes

Act 2: Cheer Squad

* Wow
* Shocked

Act 3: Beach Party
* Loveboat
* Copacabana
* Spinning Around

Act 4: Xposed
* Like a Drug
* Slow/Free
* 2 Hearts

Break

Act 5: Naughty Manga Girl
* Sometime Samurai (video projection)
* Come Into My World (Fischerspooner Mix)
* Nu-di-ty
* Sensitized

Act 6: Starry Nights
* Flower
* I Believe in You (ballad version)

Act 7: Black versus White
* On A Night Like This
* Your Disco Needs You
* Kids
* Step Back In Time
* In My Arms

Encore
* No More Rain
* The One (Freemasons Vocal Club Mix)
* Love At First Sight (Ruff & Jam US Radio Mix)
* I Should Be So Lucky

  1. Chris,

    Tickets are being released for Kylie in Bangkok this weekend.

    Its easy for me to get at the front as the Thais can’t pay the money. The problem is the first 5 rows are for ‘fanclub’ which I am not!

    I will do a search in the morning and join asap!!!….. to get at the front.

    Question being, did you get your tickets through the fan club?? I need the url, its confusing on a quick search, so I will spend more time manana. But if you have it….?

    Looking forward to it, she’s a legend!

    Regards

    C.x
