Singer and actress Kylie Minogue first rose to fame in the Australian soap opera Neighbours. She played a mechanic named Charlene for two years, co-starring with Jason Donovan.
Kylie’s music career launched in 1987, and she first hit the No.1 spot in the UK with I Should Be So Lucky. Over the years she’s returned to the top of the charts with the likes of Tears on My Pillow, Spinning Around, Can’t Get You Out of My Head, Slow and more.
In early 2018, Kylie released her 14th album, Golden. It debuted at No. 1 and marked Kylie’s sixth No. 1 album to date. After a UK arena tour last year in support of Golden, Kylie is set to return in 2019 with a string of outdoor summer dates. Shows announced include Blenheim Palace, Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl and Edinburgh Castle.
These shows will see Kylie performing a series of career-spanning hits from her back catalogue. Her latest album spawned the singles Stop Me From Falling and Dancing, the official video for which has over 11 million views and counting. Golden has also spent 20 weeks on the UK album charts and is the bestselling 2018 release by an international female artist.
Kylie celebrated her 50th birthday in 2018. Although she born and raised in Melbourne, she was worked in the UK since the 1990s. Her self-titled debut album came out in 1988. To date, Kylie has released 14 studio albums.
In addition to Neighbours, Kylie has appeared on the small screen in The Vicar of Dibley, Doctor Who and Galavant as well as on the big screen in Moulin Rouge (as The Green Fairy) and San Andreas which featured The Rock.
