Kylie Minogue claims she ''set the benchmark'' for Lady Gaga with her groundbreaking large scale shows

Kylie Minogue claims she "set the benchmark" for Lady Gaga.

The 'All The Lovers' singer - who kicked off her 'Aphrodite: Les Folies Tour' in Denmark on Saturday (19.02.11) - believes her ground-breaking shows have had an influence on the eccentric 'Born This Way' hitmaker.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I set the benchmark for Gaga. We've done it before, with all our creative shows, and now the new artists are following us.

"She inspires me and I love what she does. But we've done it before. I had the Aphrodite theme and no one has done that before. Think outside the box is what I do, and that's what keeps it fresh for me. I set the benchmark and now I can't wait to see what the new talent will do next."

Kylie, 42, also revealed how she would love to do a residency in Las Vegas and thinks her new stage show would be a perfect concert to take to the flashy US gambling capital.

She said: "I've got my Las Vegas show right here. We've been talking about it so if I do a residency I definitely have the show for it. It's crazy. I definitely can't top this one."

Kylie's spectacular new concert is themed on Greek mythology, and involves a £6 million stage, 'winged horses' and a cast of 25, including troupes of acrobats and synchronized swimmers, as well as an audience interactive 'splash zone' which closes the show.
