Last Night: Kylie Minogue At Verizon Wireless Theater

Kylie Minogue Verizon Wireless Theater May 10, 2011

Check out mighty Aphrodite Kylie Minogue in our slideshow.

Kylie Minogue is a wholly heavenly creature among comparably haggard savages in the female pop world. The strangest thing about Minogue's show Tuesday at Verizon Wireless Theater wasn't the intricate Greek-myth production design, or even the heights to which the Australian siren can push her voice, it was how much more elegant she is than most anything else going.

Not that she is competing with any of those children anyhow. Wink.

From the beginning of the show, which included a long intro featuring lithe male and female dancers dressed like the gods' own security detail, Minogue had the mostly male audience in the palms of her tiny hands. Working the crowd into a lather with the title track of last year's Aphrodite, she commanded their utmost respect, and gave everyone ample boogie fodder.
