Kylie Minogue Announces ‘Flashy’ Las Vegas Residency
The latest music sensation to perform in Sin City is Kylie Minogue. The Australian pop star declared the send off of a Las Vegas residency at The Venetian Retreat, starting off November 3 at the lodging’s new scene Voltaire. The 1,000-seat setting, which promises to blur the lines between an intimate club, concert, and entertainment venue, will host the 55-year-old songstress of “Padam Padam” as the venue’s inaugural headliner.
She told reporters on Thursday at a cocktail reception to celebrate the residency, “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.” I think I’ve found a balance where I feel like I’ve earned the right to be there and have the experience to really enjoy it. Songs from Minogue’s upcoming sixteenth album, Tension, and covers of her greatest hits from her four-decade career will appear on her new show. It is also her first series of concerts in the United States since 2011, and it has been in development for nearly three years.
“I maintain that it should be the sort of pith of what a Kylie show has become, so enough marvelousness and forsake,” she says regarding what fans can anticipate. ” It’s exciting to have some unheard versions and reinterpretations of songs in my collection. Amazing costumes, a live band, and dancers. That is the base — and afterward we’ll see what shocks we can concoct.” Minogue concedes she is still in the improvement phases of what the show will look and seem like, yet takes note of that it will be “a mix of those cozy minutes and afterward some conspicuous stuff” in a space that is a long ways from the gigantic fields she is accustomed to playing.
She says, “I like performing in these smaller environments, I think it’s going to be good” about Voltaire, which is being directed by Derek McLane, an Emmy and Tony Award winner for production design. We still stage the same show of the same size.” The songwriter behind “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” continues, “I’m so grateful to feel a part of the inception of this.” The fact that we will be creating something new is just so exciting.
Minogue says that her upcoming set list is “scraps of paper at this point,” but she also says that it might change in time. I figure it could adjust, it could have some flexibility,” she expresses, calling attention to that versions from her 2020 livestream show Limitless Disco are probably going to show up before a group of people. ” I didn’t get to visit my past collection, which was a genuine disgrace… I’m truly anticipating integrating those into a legitimate show.”
“I figure once the show’s set, it’s so good to have the option to keep yourself deft and honest,” she says, adding that ongoing viral hit “Padam” may show up in the show. Even though Minogue hasn’t asked any famous friends who have been on the Vegas Strip for advice yet, she wants to keep the door open in case anyone wants to show up at one of her performances.
“That’s what I love assuming my show goes over — which you in some cases do on the grounds that ‘Garrulous Jan’ emerges, or somebody will holler something — the band are prepared an adequate number of that we can simply go, ‘OK, do that,'” she says regarding keeping the show new. ” It’s energizing to me what will occur, yet I don’t actually have the foggiest idea yet. The stage configuration looks lovely, I have my group, we’re so amped up for it… it’s a fantasy situation.”
While Minogue hasn’t decided whether she will live in Las Vegas or Los Angeles, she anticipates that fans from all over the world will travel there. According to her, “I’m hoping that there will be international visitors who have either been to Vegas before and enjoyed it, or who have never been there, and that this might be the impetus for them to say, ‘Oh, we’re going to see Kylie in Vegas.’ ” What’s more, I know around that, they’ll have loads of fun with all that Vegas brings to the table.”
