Kylie Minogue has not cancelled tour

Kylie Minogue has branded claims she is cancelling her upcoming world tour “completely false”.

The Australian pop star, who has overcome breast cancer, was reported to have cancelled her tour – due to take place next year to mark her 40th birthday – on the advice of doctors.

However, her representatives have now vehemently denied the claims.

In a statement, they said: “We would like to make it clear that reports which surfaced yesterday (05.11.07) stating that Kylie has cancelled a forthcoming tour on doctor’s orders is completely false.

“When asked, Kylie has said on numerous occasions that she loves touring and that she might tour again in the near future. There were and are no dates currently confirmed. If and when dates are confirmed they will be announced in the normal manner.

“Thus, reports that Kylie has cancelled a tour are not true for the simple reason that no tour had been booked.

“Kylie has not been told by her doctors that touring ‘could seriously harm her health’, and touring is something she is still considering for the future. Her health remains excellent and she is in the middle of promoting her new single and album.”

Kylie’s new album, X, and single 2 Hearts are both due for release later this month.
