Kylie Minogue has launched her ‘Aphrodite - Les Folles’ world tour in Herning, Denmark to 10,000 adoring fans.

According to Kylie herself, the show is the result of “nearly a year of planning” and features enormous sets reminiscent of ancient Roman architecture.

There are water features, a giant golden stallion, forty seven billion costume changes (okay eight, all by Dolce & Gabbana), flying dancers, huge screens and a set list covering her entire career.

Below is a sneak-peek of the show. Look further down for the complete set list and the tour dates announced so far. The tour will take up a majority of 2011. Fans in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia need not panic, dates will be added in your area!
