Kylie Minogue will kick off a tour of the UK and Ireland at the Newcastle Arena later this year.

The Australian pop star, who is known for her extravagant visual shows and jaw-dropping stage costumes, will hit the road in September and October on a tour in support of her forthcoming new album Golden.

She last embarked on a concert stint three years ago with her Kylie Summer 2015 mini-tour across Europe.

The 49-year-old singer's Golden Tour will be at the Newcastle Arena on September 18, and from there she is also scheduled to play in Nottingham, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Cardiff, London, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Dublin and Belfast.

Minogue will release Golden, her 14th studio album, on April 6.

Tickets for the tour go on sale to the general public via outlets including Minogue's website and Ticketmaster on March 2.
