Pop princess Kylie Minogue celebrates her 40th birthday tomorrow.
The singer performs in Cologne in Germany tonight, on the eve of the landmark day.
Tomorrow the petite star will take a break from her 'X' tour to mark the date with a small group of family and friends.
Dannii Minogue will be joining her sister at what is expected to be a lavish sit-down dinner in Germany, while mother Carol and father Ron are flying in from Australia.
Minogue's tour resumes with a gig in Munich on Thursday, before moving to Switzerland, France and Spain.
Last week, she kicked off her birthday celebrations in Greece.
Minogue booked a three-storey hotel overlooking the Aegean sea for her entourage.
More than 100 people celebrated at an all-night party, attended by people from her record label, her tour and management.
Her catering staff from the 'X' tour were also invited - with Minogue hiring outside caterers so they could get the night off.
A spokesman said: "Kylie will be celebrating her birthday with her family and close friends."
