Thigh high boots, PVC and hot lips accessorised the queen of pop- Kylie Minogue - when she returned to Nottingham after a 23-year hiatus.
In the first night of a two-night stop-over at the Capital FM Arena, Kylie brought her Kiss Me Once Tour to her fans from the past and present.
Even though Kylie only equates to 5ft tall, the small siren brought a big show to the arena. It wasn’t a show for the faint-hearted as the sweet-loving Kylie of the 80s and 90s is more sex kitten than pop princess.
With more spotlights than Heathrow Airport and searchlights reminiscent of a scene from the Blitz, Kylie cavorted to her latest edgy hits, including Sexercise.
At 46, Kylie clearly still has ‘it’ and shared all 5ft of it with her Nottingham fans who simply lapped it up.
As lasers pierced the darkness with colours like the Northern Lights, Kylie continued to give us hit after hit and countless costume changes from short, sequinned tuxedo to a cutesy pink fluff-ball frock that transformed into a heart-shaped bodice during her Stock, Aitkin and Waterman medley.
Put Your Hand on Your Heart, Never Too Late and Gotta Be Certain brought back memories of the early days of video and coming home from school to watch Neighbours with Charlene and Scott.
With a great interpretation of INXS classic Need You Tonight, we were reminded of the naughty Kylie and her period of penchant for bad boys.
But there wasn’t much time for nostalgia as she whisked us forward a couple of decades for Spinning Around and Your Disco Needs You, Wow,Love at First Sight, Get Outta My Way and Doin’ It For the Kids.
There were pauses to the playlist as she brought her personality to the show by chatting to the audience and singing a few requests-including the Locomotion.
