Showgirl Homecoming Live
Label: Parlophone UK
Very few live albums deliver a comparable experience to actually being there, and this problem is particularly accentuated with the elfin Kylie, since at least 50 percent of her charm is visual. That said, this on-stage romp through her back catalogue clearly delights her Sydney audience, who go even crazier when Bono shows up to duet on "Kids." Elsewhere she vamps like the diva you know and love, especially on the surprisingly sultry "Locomotion" and the inevitable "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."
