British rockers The Kooks were left devastated after their unlikely musical hero Kylie Minogue refused to allow them entry to her latest tour's after-party.
The group were in Paris shooting the promo for upcoming single 'Do You Wanna' at the same time the Australian pop star kicked off her X2008 tour in the French capital last week.
Being huge fans of the 'Can't Get Your Out Of My Head' popstress, the group desperately pleaded for invitations to the exclusive event, but were left disappointed after the superstar snubbed them.
The band's frontman Luke Pritchard explained: "We heard she was having a party so asked if we could come. We were gutted (when refused). I like her and her songs."
The knock-back will not stop the rockers trying to party with the diminutive singer in the future, However.
Pritchard added: "I won't give up. We'll try again next time we're in the same city."
