Intimate and Live was the fourth concert tour by Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue in support of her sixth studio album Impossible Princess (1997).

Background[edit]

During the tour, Minogue was accompanied by only two dancers (David Scotchford and Ashley Wallen) and a band mainly consisting of members of Australia's John Farnham band, with added backing vocalists. Despite initial plans not to take the show outside of Australia, she decided to extend it into Europe due to high demand.[1]

Concert synopsis[edit]

Minogue performing "Dancing Queen" in Melbourne.

The tour was divided into four acts and an encore. The concert begins with Kylie's eyes on a screen above the stage. The turret seen on the album cover lights up to reveal Kylie's shadow. She sings the first song on the album "Too Far", remaining at the top of the podium which she is on. She goes on to sing "What Do I Have to Do?", as doors in the podium slide open to reveal stairs which, as Kylie descends them, light up. She goes on to sing "Some Kind of Bliss", "Put Yourself in My Place", "Breathe" and "Take Me with You".

During the second act, Kylie emerge behind a pink "K" in a pink showgirl costume to perform a torch version of "I Should Be So Lucky". Her two dancers make their first appearance by entering behind the "K" to help when Kylie sings ABBA hit "Dancing Queen". Kylie then removes the headdress to sing "Dangerous Game". For the third act, she emerges behind the same K dressed as a cowgirl to sing "Cowboy Style". She removes her cowgirl hat and goes on to sing "Step Back in Time", "Say Hey", "Free" and "Drunk". The K remains at the top of the podium for the rest of the show.

For the fourth act, Kylie struts out from the right side of the stage in a blue tank top and black pants to sing "Did It Again". Her dancers join her again when she sings "Limbo", her drummer/percussionist comes out to play the bongos before Kylie sings "Shocked". The encore sees Kylie emerging from behind the sliding doors, sitting on the stairs, wearing a tassley green dress, to sing a Blues-esque version of "Confide in Me". She then sings a lively version of "The Loco-Motion and "Should I Stay or Should I Go". The final song was "Better The Devil You Know", where Kylie enters the stage in a red corset with devil horns. An array of men dressed in red briefs and horns also enter the stage for the finale.

The concert realized in the Capitol Theatre, Sydney was recorded and released a live album in 30 November 1998. The concert was released on DVD in 23 July 2002.
