Kylie – North American Tour

Kylie’s first ever major US tour was really a ‘best of’ her live performances – targeted at theatre’s but with an arena production and included such prestigious venues as The Hollywood Bowl and Hammerstein Ballroom where it was recorded for eventual release as “Kylie Live In New York”

The show featured a new section based around the song “White Diamond” including a new overture piece written by Steve called “White Diamond Theme” littered with famous phrases from Hollywood actresses -this section appeared on the Special Edition of Kylie’s “Aphrodite” album. It also premiered new versions of “Speakerphone”, “Light Years” and “Come Into My World” which the original studio versions by Steve appeared on the “Live In New York” album which he also mixed.
