Kylie's hometown comeback
16:30 15 May 2006
Kylie Minogue will perform a comeback concert in her home town of Melbourne.
The pop princess - who is recovering after battling breast cancer for the last year - is planning a string of shows at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena in November.
A source is quoted in Britain's The People newspaper as saying: "She insists on Melbourne for her family, friends and hometown supporters.
"And her people have already pencilled in the dates in November - the height of summer in Australia - to guarantee a booking."
The singer - who was forced to cancel several dates of her sell-out 'Showgirl' world tour after she was diagnosed with the disease last May - is already practicing for the concerts.
Manager Terry Blamey said Kylie, who got the all-clear from cancer four months ago, is "going to come back better than ever".
Meanwhile, the star is also back in the recording studio.
The 37-year-old said: "I'm feeling much better but I'm taking things slowly. It's just good to be back. I've had a great week in the studio. Things couldn't be better.
"I'm working as fast as I can to bring out a new single."
