Kylie Minogue is the latest pop star to head to the Las Vegas strip!
Rumors that the “Padam Padam” singer had landed a residency in Sin City began circulating in late 2022 and reached a fever pitch earlier this summer after Kelly Clarkson appeared to confirm that something was in the works.
On Thursday (July 27), Kylie broke the big news herself and shared some details about what fans should expect when they come to see her.

Kylie‘s residency doesn’t have a title just yet. However, it does have a location. The pop icon is taking over the Voltaire, which is hosted at the Venetian Resort. She’ll kick things off this fall based on her Instagram teaser.
What can fans expect when they secure tickets? For starters, it’s being described as “more than just a residency.”
“I want it to be the kind of essence of what a Kylie show has become, enough glamour and abandon. I’ve got some versions of songs that have not been heard, like reinterpretations of songs, which is exciting. Live bed dances, amazing costumes. That’s the base and then we’ll see what surprises we can come up with,” Kylie explained at a press preview, according to Variety.
She noted that she has a history in Vegas, but only as a touring artist.
“When I did Aphrodite, which was a tour with so many waterworks in like precision fountains… My team at the time kept saying, ‘why isn’t this in Vegas? We’ve got to do it at some point,’” Kylie recalled.
She’d had similar thoughts: “I was thinking years ago I want to do it when I’m younger like, I don’t want to do it when I’m at the sunset of my career. So, I think I’ve got it right somewhere in the middle where I feel like I’ve earned the right to and have the experience to really enjoy being there.”
Tickets for the show go on sale on August 3, according to EW.
Kylie‘s new album Tension is set to arrive on September 22. So far, we’ve already gotten a taste of her summer smash “Padam Padam.”
