Kylie prepares for 40th birthday bash

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."
