After much speculation the word is out – Kylie’s announced her first Anti tour shows in Melbourne and Sydney later this month!
Sunday 18th March 2012 The Palace, 20-30 Bourke St., Melbourne
Tuesday 20th March 2012 The Big Top, Luna Park, Sydney
Small, intimate, unexpected. A unique experience, for super fans only. Kylie and her band performing those songs you thought you’d never hear live! The flipside to a huge “Kylie production”, a once in a lifetime chance and a night to remember.
Tickets on sale NOON Wednesday 7 March (Sydney time) via kylie.com and frontiertouring.com/kylie. Numbers are strictly limited. These shows will sell out.
Queen Cheryl “Chezza” Cole, she of The Almighty Aloud and X Factor GIFs aplenty, recently put the finishing touches on her third studio album, which is due out later in 2012.
Now, the pop beans have been spilled by Sunday Mirror columnist Dean Piper, who confirmed earlier today that “We Found Love” hit-maker Calvin Harris worked with Cheryl on “a dance classic” which will likely act as the lead single from the upcoming campaign. (There’s also talk of will.i.am on the song, which is just…)
No. Let’s not get sad. If Cheryl can survive malaria, we can survive will.i.am.
Focus on Cheryl and Calvin. Dream of the possibilities. At best, we’ll get something as bright and shimmering as RiRi‘s “We Found Love” and “Where Have You Been,” Kylie Minogue‘s “In My Arms” or Sophie Ellis-Bextor/Róisín Murphy‘s “Off & On.” At worst, we’ll just get a reductive carbon copy of “We Found Love,” which would still be objectively amazing.
From what I’ve heard from my own sources, this is one of Cheryl’s biggest records yet, and it could even spell out an opportunity to dominate worldwide. 2012: Year of the Cole?

Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan has said the band have 20 songs lined up for their next album.
The singer reckons the band will be hitting the studio in April to lay down tracks for their first LP since 2009's 'Sounds Of The Universe'.
Gahan told Rolling Stone: We've got about 20 songs demoed and we're going to begin recording at the end of next month.
He added: "It's a very different process from what it used to be.
"You've got to put interesting people around you, you've got to work with people who are going to inspire you to take the songs you've written into a completely different direction, because there's nothing more boring than going to the studio and predictably knowing what is going to happen."
Founding member Martin Gore also recently said that the band hope to have their new album finished by the end of this year.
His VCMG side project with ex-Mode member Vince Clarke will release their debut LP 'Ssss' in the UK on March 12.

There¹s a fun moment at the end of the video to the first single Give Me All Your Luvin’, when Madonna flings a baby doll off camera and away from her breast. It isn’t a subtle marker of starting anew with her loyal audience of gays and good-time girls, but it is comically satisfying nonetheless. Party Madonna is back and she wants us to know it.
