"Money Can't Buy" was a one-off invitation-only concert by Australian artist Kylie Minogue, held at London's Hammersmith Apollo on 15 November 2003, to promote her ninth studio album Body Language. It was so called as no tickets were offered for sale publicly and only invited guests and competition winners attended the show. William Baker and Alan MacDonald served as creative and art directors, respectively, while Michael Rooney and Steve Anderson worked on the choreography and musical arrangements. Display hardware manufacturer Barco provided LED displays for showing graphics as backdrops to the performances. Minogue wore five different costumes, designed by fashion houses such as Balenciaga, Chanel, and Helmut Lang, for the 75 minutes-long show. The total cost of staging the concert was £1 million.
Minogue primarily performed tracks from Body Language during the show, although songs from her past albums were also included in the set list. It was split in four segments: "Paris by Night", "Bardello", "Electro" and "On Yer Bike". Critical reception towards the show was generally favourable, with compliments directed at the visuals and inclusion of past songs. Critics also praised the show's 80s-influences and its Parisian imagery. The concert was streamed live on AOL.com and broadcast on television channels ITV1 and Network Ten a few days later. It was also filmed and released as a DVD, entitled Body Language Live, on 12 July 2004. The DVD performed well commercially in Australia and United Kingdom, where it received a platinum and gold certification, respectively.
The show was split into four sections and an encore. The first section, Paris By Night, began with an accapella chorus of "Still Standing", before the curtain opened to reveal Kylie in the outfit worn on the "Body Language" album cover, seated on a beam, also from the album cover. She goes on to sing "Red Blooded Woman" and "On a Night Like This" which samples "Singin' in the Rain".
The second section, Bardello, begins with a mashup of Minogue's own song "Breathe" and Serge Gainsbourg song "Je T'aime" from 1969. She then went on to sing Body Language tracks "After Dark" and "Chocolate", closing the section.
Electro begins with a performance of "Can't Get You Out of My Head", where the dancers emerged in bondage-style outfits. Following this, Minogue sang "Slow" and "Obsession", tracks from the album, and closes the act with "In Your Eyes".
On Yer Bike begins with "Secret (Take You Home)", which saw Minogue reclining on a motorbike in a complete white outfit. She then went on to perform "Spinning Around", closing the act. After a final costume change, Minogue re-emerged to close the show with a performance of "Love at First Sight".
