It turns out Kylie Minogue's first live concert performance was in 1988 at Canton Disco, a nightclub in Hong Kong, headed up by none other than Andrew Bull.

“Kylie Minogue was still in [Australian soap] Neighbours at the time and had had a couple of hits,” explains Bull, “but never done a live performance, and her management wanted to take her to England, so they asked if they could come into our club to prepare her.” 

He had his team capture the night on video for posterity, but, much to his frustration, the tape broke.

“It had busted and had spooled off, so I’d unscrewed it to try and tape it back on, but couldn’t get anywhere with it, so I put it aside somewhere and it hasn’t been seen since. 

“Our maid probably tossed it, thinking it was rubbish, which is a bitch… it would be worth a fortune on Ebay if anything else – she’d buy it off me for a million!”

That is until now, as Bull has recovered the video, and in a world exclusive you can watch a clip from the show below (VPN off):
