Intimate and Live Tour was a concert tour performed by Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue in 1998 in support of her sixth studio album "Impossible Princess". On the back of the more adult sound of her then latest and most misunderstood album, the 'Intimate and Live tour' revitalised Kylie's love of performing her own songs to a live audience. Australia had taken the Impossible Princess album to its heart and made it a huge hit, the only territory to truly do so, and whilst using a live show once again to thank the many loyal fans in her home country, she also took the opportunity to throw herself head-first into putting on a spectacular evening's entertainment.

A limited budget with barely two pennies to rub together, as Kylie herself put it, dictated a carefully conceived production, and when, on occasion, Kylie was unable to realise all her dreams for the show, the tour motto was brought into force: "if in doubt, apply more glitter!". Accompanied by only two dancers (David Scotchford and Ashley Wallen) and a band. Interestingly, the band was maily members of Australia's John Farnham band, with added backing vocalists. Despite the tight purse strings, with this added sparkle, and more importantly with Kylie performing a full spectrum of her back catalogue with unprecedented confidence and abandonment, no one from the audience, backstage or front of house had time to notice. With eighteen sell out shows, constantly added to through sheer demand, and a peak-time television special that captured Kylie at functions, parties, and backstage, alongside footage from the show, the whole thing was deemed unbeatable. Kylie received the best reviews of her career, with many commenting on the strength of her performance, her vocals and most notably the sheer stage presence that she now displayed.

Despite initial plans not to take the show outside of Australia, pressure from UK fans, who had heard about the show in great detail from the internet, forced Kylie to relent and bring the show to London in the form of three scaled-down shows at the Shepherds Bush Empire. The shows received the same euphoric reaction as back home, and with audiences on their feet throughout, press reports predicted her return to the top of the charts. The experience, and subsequent feedback, reiterated to Kylie the certainty to which direction her showgirl incarnation would now take her.
