Kylie Minogue coming to Hard Rock Live in Orlando




Robyn and La Roux have played the Ritz Ybor. Lady Gaga is coming to the St. Pete Times Forum. If that's still not enough sparkly dance pop for you, you better plan a trip to Orlando.

Grammy-winning Australian dance-pop icon Kylie Minogue is coming to Hard Rock Live in Orlando on May 8, according to her website. She'll also be at Fort Lauderdale's BankAtlantic Center on May 7.

For fans of the pint-size singer, and they are legion, this is gigantic news. While we can't find proof that these will be her first Florida shows, we do know that Minogue didn't stage her first North American tour until 2009. This could be because despite hits like Locomotion, Can't Get You Out Of My Mind and Love at First Sight, Minogue has simply never broken stateside like she has in Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa, South America and, presumably, Antarctica. To the rest of the world, she's like Madonna.

Minogue will bring her glammy gams (and supposedly insane stage setup) to Orlando on May 8, and tickets go onsale at 10 a.m. Jan. 22. They'll be priced at $75-$139 via Ticketmaster. Click here to purchase.
