Kylie Minogue to release New York live set
By Richard Smirke
LONDON (Billboard) - Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue is to release a download-only concert album, "Kylie Live in New York."
Set for global release December 14, the album was recorded at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom earlier this fall as part of the diminutive singer's first North American tour.
The 25-song set contains live versions of international hits "Confide in Me," "The Locomotion" and "Can't Get You Out of My Head" -- the latter in its remixed form with the New Order track "Blue Monday" and renamed "Boombox/Can't Get Blue Monday Out of My Head." ITunes customers will also receive three bonus tracks.
International release is being handled by Parlophone/EMI, excluding Australia and New Zealand, where the artist is signed to Mushroom Records.
To preview the release, YouTube will be running a one-hour audio stream of the first half of the show from midnight U.K. time December 12. The stream will be available for 24 hours.
Kylie Minogue's debut U.S. tour took place September 30 to October 11 this year.
