Thousands of British fans brought in the New Year with pop star Kylie Minogue as she staged her first UK show since her treatment for breast cancer. The Australian singer, 38, launched the British leg of her Showgirl Homecoming Tour last night at Wembley Arena in north west London. The event drew 12,000 fans who saw the singer make five costume changes during the show. Fans in Sydney were the first to see the tour in November as Minogue, covered in pink feathers, returned to the stage following treatment for breast cancer. The star - who wrote a children's book during her recovery - said the show would be "the biggest party of all". Minogue has another six dates planned at Wembley in 2007, followed by a six nights in Manchester.
