DAILY STAR - Monday 21st February 2011 - U.K.
"Riding on the back of winged horse Pegasus... Looking like a goddess of love - in tune with her song Aphrodite - she ensured the show, in front of a capacity crowd...went off with a bang... Nobody was left disappointed - the set list featured both songs from the new album and classics like Can't Get You Out of My Head. Vive La Kylie!"
MIRROR - Wednesday 23rd February 2011 - U.K.
"Kylie's latest extravaganza is a 130-minute mind-boggling trip through Greek mythology featuring winged horses, troupes of acrobats, synchronized swimming and gallons of water that even shoot over fans in a special interactive "splash zone"... She's the goddess of love and all the sets and costumes stem from the title...Despite all the special effects, Les Folies remains a good old- fashioned rock 'n' roll show."
DAILY STAR - Wednesday 23rd February 2011 - U.K.
"Kylie Minogue presented her biggest, and, if the audience's comments are anything to go by, best show ever! Over 10,000 elated Kylie fans raised the roof with a standing ovation at the end of Kylie's two hour pop spectacular...When Kylie first appeared on stage in a giant golden clam shell, which appropriately floated up from the depths, the crowd were spellbound, entranced, taken into another world. .. her voice was in fine form, reaching impossible heights effortlessly."
