Background Information

“Showgirl: Homecoming Live” is a live CD recorded during the second night of Minogue’s Showgirl – The Homecoming Tour in Sydney Australia. This performance was on November 12, 2006, while U2 was touring on the Vertigo tour in Australia. During the performance of the song “Kids”, Bono joins Minogue on stage to perform the song, which was originally a duet between Minogue and Robbie Williams. The original release of “Kids” came the same week that “Beautiful Day” was released in the UK, and although it gave U2 a run for their money, “Beautiful Day” ended up topping the charts that week.

A suited Bono, wearing black, joins Kylie who is wearing a leopard suit on stage for this song. The two stayed close thoughout the song on stage. “Ladies and gentlemen, we are in the company of greatness tonight,” Kylie told her audience at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, “Let me hear it for Bono.” After the song, Bono dropped to one knee and kissed Kylie on the hand.

The performance was also released as a DVD in October 2007 under the title “White Diamond”. For the live performance be sure to look for the two disc version, featuring the live DVD of the November 12, 2006 performance.
