Kylie Minogue may have been in the music business for 25 years but she's not above forgetting the lyrics to her own hits, it would seem. When the pint-sized pop star took to the stage at London's Hammersmith Apollo on the last of her London dates, she admitted to the loyal gathering that she had only decided to include 'Give Me Just A Little More Time' in the set a few hours before she went onstage.
The Anti tour is a celebration of 25 years of music-making for Minogue. She has decided to celebrate with a series of low-key, stripped-back performances; a far cry from the big budget productions that she usually takes on the road. The set lists for the shows have been largely comprised of B-sides and rarities but she decided to perform a version of the 1991 hit single (number two in the UK) and told the audience "This is going to be painting by numbers," as she held on to a print-out of the lyrics. She still managed to get the first wrong, but the audience joined in, coming to her rescue and covering up the mistake as she laughed. "I might have just murdered that song," she joked afterwards.
