Kylie Arrives In Colombia

31 10 2008

Kylie has arrived in Colombia to kick off the second leg of her KYLIEX2008 tour, when she makes her first appearance in Latina America at Bogota Parque tomorrow night. Dubbed locally as the ‘largest Halloween party ever’ the night features Melbourne act Cut Copy as the ‘warm-up’ with Kylie taking to the stage at around 11pm (3pm Sunday 2nd November AEDT).

Kylie’s decision to perform in Colombia is said to have stunned local event promoters and fans because of the country’s reputation for drug barons, kidnappings and bombings. “It was difficult for us to believe that an such an important artist, such a big artist, would want to come to Colombia.” explained Juan Arbelaez, project director at event management group Evenpro Colombia.

While in Bogota, Kylie will get presidential-style security with 15 around-the-clock armed guards, and travel in bulletproof cars with motorcycle escorts. In a pre-show interview with a local radio station, Kylie said she was ‘muy emocianda’ (very excited) and expected Colombia to be exciting and vibrant.

Kylie is said to have asked local fans to do their research and learn the lyrics, while promising to include the song Locomotion in the line up. The Australian icon has a strong Colombian fan base, with her albums selling between 20,000 to 30,000 copies, even though it is often easier and cheaper to get a pirated copy on the streets.

After Saturday nights show in Colombia KYLIEX2008 will stop in Venezuela, Peru, Brazil, Chile and Argentina before heading to Asia.
