|Kylie Minogue tour chronology|
The Let's Get to It Tour was the fourth concert tour by Kylie Minogue. The tour was technically a continuation of the previous Rhythm of Love Tour which had already visited Australia and Asia. Together with five dancers, Kylie staged the tour in support of the album Let's Get to It (1991).
The show comprised an all-new couture wardrobe created by John Galliano and several new additions to the set list, many of which were written by Kylie herself.
By her choosing of outfits on the tour, the title "SexKylie" was given by the media in this period.
Background and development
The tour was an updated version of her last tour promoting for Rhythm of Love (1990). A whole new stage wardrobe was conducted by British fashion designer John Galliano, Kylie's first major fashion designer.
In August 1991, Kylie said she was churning ideas around about different costumes, different designers and so on. "I've already got some ideas starting to simmer inside me", said Kylie.
Kylie talked about her inspiration for the tour's fashion: "Well, I don't know if this makes any sense but I'm looking into the future for inspiration. It probably sounds a bid odd but I know what I mean by it. Every one – me included – usually looks back into the past to get inspired for a new look but I'm trying to imagine what life's going to be like in the year 2000."
After the first show of the tour, a tabloid accused Kylie of copying Madonna's look from her Who's That Girl World Tour.
Writing for Chronicle Live in 2014, Gordon Barr said the performance she gave on the tour was a "polished" one he has seldom seen at the many other gigs he has been to.
Kylie also got criticised for her choice of costume on the tour. When being asked about the subject on Tonight Live with Steve Vizard, Kylie stated:
|“||I would like to think that people in England—and also around the world—don't take what they say as being gospel. I actually had a lot of really good press, and so, as far as I can tell it was about time to give me a hard time, but, for me, the only way I can judge the shows was from the audiences' reactions and they were just great. And of course the outfits were a bit, maybe, a little bit too much, but that wasn't a mistake, that was meant to cause a bit of a stir.||”|
In 2013, VH1 listed her in the fishnet costume as one of her ten most "butt-iful" moments. Irish Examiner called the outfit "risque", but stated: "There IS such a thing as too much fishnet, and this is definitely overstepping the mark."
