Good week /Bad week

It's been a good week for :

Kylie Minogue : Her two British shows at Wembley Arena on Jan 2nd and 3rd sold out in 6 minutes flat.

The shows mark Kylie's return after recovering from breast cancer, which forced her to cut short her last tour in 2005.

Fans jammed phone lines when tickets went on sale at 9am. Two further shows were then announced for January 5 and 6, but the demand was so great that the venue's computer system crashed.

The two additional dates have also sold-out so a final two dates have been added on Jan 8th and 9th, bringing her total number of shows at Wembley to a staggering six in total.

Bad week for : Bob Geldof who scrapped two gigs in Italy at the weekend after selling just 345 tickets out of a potential 27000. The Irish rock musician and political activist beat a retreat back to London at the weekend after cancelling concerts in Milan and Rome because too few fans had bought tickets.

Only 45 people turned up on Friday at Milan's Civic Arena for a performance by the 51-year-old singer and songwriter. The venue has a capacity of 12,000.
