|Kylie Minogue concert chronology|
On a Night Like This is the sixth concert tour by Australian recording artist, Kylie Minogue. The tour supports her seventh studio album Light Years that began in March 2001. Having hit the headlines around the globe for her hugely successful performance at the Sydney Olympics in 2000, and having subsequently performed again at the opening ceremony of Sydney's Paralympics soon after, Minogue seized the opportunity to announce details of her new tour. It became the fastest-selling concert tour of her career when tickets went on sale that November, and with dozens of sell-out shows, she had succeeded in establishing herself as one of the most in-demand live entertainers. The tour began with a bumpy start, however, when the first show in Dublin, Ireland, scheduled for 1 March, had to be cancelled due to treacherous storms preventing air travel into the country.
Minogue was inspired by the style of Broadway shows such as 42nd Street and films such as Anchors Aweigh, South Pacific and the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers musicals of the 1930s. Describing Bette Midler as a "heroine", she also incorporated some of the "camp and burlesque" elements of Midler's live performances. The show directed and choreographed by Luca Tommassini featured elaborate back-drops such as the deck of an ocean liner, an Art Deco New York City skyline, and the interior of a space ship. Minogue was praised for her new material and her reinterpretations of some of her greatest successes, turning "I Should Be So Lucky" into a torch song and "Better the Devil You Know" into a 1940s big band number.
