Step back in time: Kylie Minogue performs against spectacular Egyptian backdrop



Spectacular: Kylie Minogue performed last night in front of the ancient Sphinx and Pyramids of Giza in Egypt

She has performed in cities all over the world, but this setting would have to be one of the most jaw-dropping.

With the amazing view of the Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza in the background, Kylie Minogue thrilled fans at an open air concert held in front of the spectacular site in Egypt.

The pop star was in Cairo to perform at the 10th anniversary of Enigma magazine.

She took to the stage in a gorgeous sheer gown by Emilio Pucci that was whipped up in the breeze to reveal the diminutive singer's legs, and a staggering pair of spiked Christian Louboutin heels.

Party-goers, dressed to the nines for the 'Hollywood Red Carpet Glamour' dress code, paid around £330 to attend the charity event, with profits going to the We Owe it to Egypt foundation and the Abou el-Reesh paediatric hospital.

The 42-year-old spent some time sight-seeing earlier in the day, gushing to her Twitter followers 'This mystical place is insane!!'

She was given a tour of the ancient city by Vice Minister of Culture in Egypt, Dr Zahi Hawass.

Kylie uploaded a picture of the pair standing in front of the Sphinx, and despite her years of globe trotting, she still appeared in awe of the historical site.

She wrote: 'With the amazing Dr Zahi Hawass in front of the Sphinx...yes THE Sphinx!!! To see these sights is so incredible, moving and powerful.'

Later she excitedly tweeted, 'Rehearsing for our show in Cairo..... in front of ...the .....PYRAMIDS!!!!!'

The day before her Cairo concert, Kylie sent her love to sister Dannii who turned 39: 'Peeps...wish Happy Birthday to Mummy @DanniiMinogue!!!' she tweeted.

The Australian superstar recently spoke out about the feud between her younger sister Dannii and former X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne.

After Dannii wrote about their strained relationship in her autobiography, Sharon's daughter Kelly launched a rant on Twitter about the Australian in response.

Kylie said: 'I feel protective. Dannii is my little sister and I always feel the urge to get involved. But I’m reluctant to get dragged into this fresh hoo-ha

'It’s such a small part of our lives now. I think it’s basically become a pantomime. But it was very real at the time Sharon and Dannii were both on the show.

'We had the Osbournes and the Minogues kicking off. But I know Dannii wishes it would go away. Can we just get past this now? Come on! It’s a bit old and boring.'
