Press release for the Aphrodite Les Folies DVD/Blu-ray release


“The pop princess set a new benchmark for arena shows with Les Folies and redefined the term ‘spectacular’ along the way” – Daily Star


Parlophone will release Kylie’s amazing performance ‘Aphrodite - Les Folies’, filmed live at London’s O2 Arena last April, on CD, DVD and Blu-ray on November 28th. The tour was Kylie’s most ambitious and spectacular to date and the DVD footage, filmed over 2 nights, captures the show at its absolute peak. Directed by William Baker and Marcus Viner, all formats also feature an exclusive tour documentary.

The ultra theatrical tour was devised with Kylie’s creative director, William Baker and toured 5 continents, 27 countries, 55 cities, 77 shows, with 150 days on the road, 85,000km travelled and audience numbers in excess of 575,000.

With costumes created exclusively for Kylie by Dolce & Gabbana, the stage show followed an enchanting Greek mythology theme, and featured an astonishing water finale. This was a show that truly redefined what a pop concert could be.

Acclaim for Aphrodite: Les Folies

“A dazzling fashion-fabulous spectacle…a show so extraordinarily extravagant and spectacularly indulgent…Kylie was stupendous!” – Sunday Times

“Kylie Minogue is not just a pop star any more, she is a veritable goddess” – The Telegraph

“The most spectacular finale I’ve ever seen at an arena show…she rose to the top of a rotating fountain as acrobats splashed around her and the front rows got gloriously soaked. It was the graceful, breathtaking and unforgettable highlight of a show that saw this modern Aphrodite secure her legendary status” – Evening Standard

“Bigger, better, bolder, camper and brighter than any of Minogue’s previous shows…not to be missed” – Sunday Telegraph
