KylieFever2002 (also known as Fever Tour) was the sixth concert tour by Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue. It was in support of her eighth studio album, Fever. The show was filmed in Manchester, on 4 May 2002 and released on a DVD titled "KylieFever2002: Live in Manchester", along with a bonus CD.

Background[edit]

The tour was the biggest production Minogue had put on to date. The album and its music videos were able to provide and inspire multiple stage sets and costume changes, the first of its kind to use projection. The tour had a much larger budget than past shows due to the success of the album and its singles. Due to the increase in money the stage sets were able to become much grander with two staircases and five projection screens which were used to enhance the different themes of the show.

The costumes for the show were designed exclusively for Minogue by Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana. The choreographer for the tour was Rafael Bonachela.

It was Minogue's first tour to have sponsors, which were Evian and Vodafone. At each of the UK shows, sponsors Evian gave away free bottles of water, the packaging for which replaced the Evian branding with the name 'Kylie'. Bottles were also marked with the words, "Evian - Kylie's official thirst quencher for the 2002 Fever Tour".[1]

As the album's lead single began to grow in the U.S., Minogue devoted time before the tour to promote the song and album. Minogue's visit sparked rumors of a tour in the States. According to Capitol Records president Andy Slater, a U.S. has not been discussed. Minogue commented on her reluctance to tour the States. She felt the American audience wouldn't "get" her live shows and wouldn't know her back catalogue".[2] Despite rumors of a North American leg, plans never developed due to Minogue's status in that country.[3] During the time, British magazine Hello reported a U.S. tour had been cancelled, so that Minogue could focus on her personal life.[4] It was later revealed Minogue was swayed differently by her management. However, Minogue did tour the U.S. with Jingle Ball, an annual concert produced on by KIIS-FM, visiting Anaheim, Houston, Miami, Philadelphia and New York City.[5][6][7]

A special webcast of the show at the Manchester Arena was shown exclusively on MSN UK live for fans around the world.
