Woah! When I headed to work on Tuesday 3rd April 2012 it was just like any other ordinary work day.
That all changed as soon as I received a tweet from @yahooOmguk saying I’d won tickets to see Kylie Minogue at Hammersmith Apollo as part of her intimate Anti-Tour.
I couldn’t believe it.
Anyone who really knows me, knows how much seeing Kylie would mean to me.
The tickets went on sale before I’d been paid and with holidays fast approaching, I couldn’t really justify paying £79 to see the princess of pop.
When I received the tweet I was over the moon- I’m not going to lie I couldn’t focus much on work after that, well not until I’d been told the details about collecting the tickets.
I always seem to be jinxed when Kylie’s in town, when she first played the O2 arena in London I was in Sydney.
Yep, you couldn’t make it up.
If I’m not away there’s usually another reason I don’t get to see her but not this time.
To see such a raw and intimate show I was well and truly humbled.
I even had a cry at ‘Tears On My Pillow’ my did it make me think of being a kid.
I played and played Kylie until the tape was knackered.
This fact makes me think of my uncle Michael.
My beloved uncle had some sort of kit to repair tapes.
I couldn’t even tell you how many times he mended my Kylie tape, I do remember the moment he said it was beyond repair.
I was crushed, I loved singing along to ‘Tears On My Pillow’ and to hear Kylie do that live- it was an emotional moment for me.
I know Michael would have been so pleased that I’d seen Kylie live at such an intimate gig.
It’s something I wish I could speak to him about, but I know he’s smiling down on me.
Kylie also sang another of my all time faves ‘Got To Be Certain’ I sang along like the child I was and I loved every single minute of it.
The set list was awesome and as Kylie said there is still a dozen more she could have added to that list.
I think every single member of that audience was begging for more.
The 3rd April 2012 is by far one of my best days so far this year.
The awesome Anti-Tour set list

Tears On My Pillow
If I was to have a bucket list seeing Kylie sing ‘Tears On My Pillow’ would be on that list, and today I can say yep, done that.
That is why Kylie was in my previous post for being an inspiration.
I truly adore her and I’m still smiling after yesterday.
