She's been churning out hits for over 20 years.

But Kylie Minogue showed she can still put on as good as show as ever as she kicked off her Aphrodite: Les Folies world tour in Denmark tonight.

The 42-year-old singer embraced Greek mythology as her theme as she performed her newest singles and her classic hits from across the years to a sell-out crowd in the central Danish city of Herning.

Just like Aphrodite was depicted perched on a shell in Sandro Botticelli's iconic painting The Birth Of Venus, so was Kylie was she emerged from a golden shell on stage at the Jyske Bank Boxen arena.

Gold and white dominated the stage, with Kylie wearing several outfits inspired by Greek mythology.

One outfit saw Kylie looking like a winged messenger with feathers over her ears, a white corseted 'mullet' dress and knee-high gladiator sandals.

She was joined on stage by her large troupe of dancers, including some scantily-clad hunky males to lift the pint-sized pop star in the air.

Writing on her Twitter after her first show, she gushed: 'It was fantastic amaZing incredible I am overwhelmed.'

In April she will move on to Asia, before performing 17 gigs in North America, ending at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas in May.

She is also expected to announce the Australian leg of the tour any day now.

Aphrodite: Les Folies is her first world tour since KylieX2008 three years ago.

Italian designer duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana announced last year they would be creating her flamboyant tour wardrobe.

They said: 'Kylie has always been our Piccola Principessa (Little Princess), not just because of our work together but more so because of our friendship! Working with Kylie has always been very spontaneous and easy.

'We are given free reign [sic] to create because she trusts that we know exactly what she likes.

'This will be our third tour with Kylie and this time we have revisited iconic Dolce & Gabbana pieces, adapting them to different themes of the tour. This show definitely cannot be missed.'
