Kylie Minogue has promised fans she will return to the stage at the end of next year.
The pop babe was forced to cancel the Australian leg of her Showgirl tour after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in May - but hopes to make her comeback late in 2006.
Fans who bought tickets to the concerts before the tour was cut short will be able to attend the new shows, although exact dates have yet to be announced.
Tour promoter Michael Gudinski revealed: "Kylie's been thinking about these shows a lot over the past months."
He added: "Kylie's touched that so many of her fans are waiting so patiently for the rescheduling of her Showgirl tour."
The 37-year-old star has also announced she will release a digital single featuring live versions of 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' and 'Santa Baby' on Christmas Day this year.
Early next month, singer's official website, www.kylie.com, will also start selling live audio tracks and video clips from Kylie's DVD, 'Showgirl - The Greatest Hits Tour'.
