Australian princess of pop Kylie Minogue is set to perform in her first Las Vegas residency later this year.

On Friday (Jul. 28, 2023), the music superstar and Grammy award winner announced the news on Instagram and X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

She is slated to perform a three-month run at luxury Las Vegas hotel The Venetian Resort in its cabaret-style nightclub Voltaire.

Shows will start in November, with tickets available from August.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the 17-time ARIA Award winner said she “couldn’t be more excited” during a Los Angeles press event for the residency.

“Today is the day where it all becomes beautifully real,” Minogue said.

Minogue had been planning these shows for three years, Entertainment Weekly said.

“To finally be able to say, yes, I am doing a show in Vegas and to be at Voltaire at the Venetian Resort, it’s just, it’s such a good match,” she said.

It will be Minogue’s first residency, despite having sold over 80 million records worldwide.

Her latest song, “Padam Padam,” has over 44 million global streams since its release in May and has made its way into numerous top 10 charts worldwide.

Her 16th album, Tension, is set to be released in September.

Minogue said the new album was a fusion of “empowered dance floor bangers and sultry pop cuts.”

“Unlike my last two albums, there wasn’t a ‘theme’, it was about finding the heart or the fun or the fantasy of that moment and always trying to service the song,” she said of the new tracks.

Minogue will join fellow Australian Keith Urban in Las Vegas, who is currently performing his Caesars Palace residency until the end of November.
