SOUNDBITE: Singer Kylie Minogue, saying (English):
"Welcome to my Anti Tour"
She might be wearing her trade mark hotpants - but Kylie was in no mood to spin around at a gig in London on Tuesday.
The Pop Princess is celebrating her 25th year in the music industry with a series of stripped back intimate performances:
SOUNDBITE: Singer Kylie Minogue, saying (English) :
"It's so nice to see you all, so you know what tonight's about yeah, you're probably not going to hear, I don't know (singing) La La La or I'm Spinning Around or I should Be So or Love At ... or any of those guys, I know a lot of you wrote your own lists of what you would like in the Anti Tour, I too have my list many, many versions of that list and this song was constantly in it."
A b-side from her 2007 album X, Cherry Bomb was one of a number of rare tracks on her set list.
After two successful nights in Manchester Kylie's K25 mini-tour moved for the last of her UK dates to London's Hammersmith Apollo.
Sold out in ten minutes, die hard fans were delighted to have tickets:
SOUNDBITE: Kylie fans Stephen Wycart and Paul Hutton, Wycart, saying (English):
"It's really cool, it's kind of a bit gig-ish, it's not really what she normally does she's normally got lots of feathers and sequins, it will be more fun I think, it should be good."
SOUNDBITE: Kylie fans Helen Black and David Arney, saying (English):
David: "It's a chance to see rare B-sides and different versions of the songs." Helen: "Can't wait."
Ditching her chart toppers proved a hit, Kylie looked happy and relaxed and her supporters clearly felt lucky, lucky, lucky to be there.
