Christina Aguilera will launch her first Las Vegas residency show this spring, the singer announced today. Christina Aguilera: The Xperience will debut at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in May, with the initial set of dates running through October.
Aguilera made the big reveal in an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. “It’s been in talks for quite a few years now,” singer told DeGeneres of her residency plans. “I’ve been culminating this for a long time so I’m really, really excited for people to enjoy this experience.” Watch the full clip below.
The residency news follows Aguilera’s Liberation Tour, which brought her to nearly 20 U.S. cities last fall and marked her first headlining tour in a decade. The Grammy winner expressed that she will continue to tour in the future, but a residency is ideal to fit her schedule as a working mother.
“It will be a little easier with the kids. I still want to see my fans all over and in Europe and everything but how much easier [it is] for everyone to just come to one place and fill the venue with fantasy and love and excitement and put on a show that I’ve been actually accumulating for years,” she told DeGeneres.
Aguilera is the latest major pop star to invade the Las Vegas Strip with a concert residency. Powerhouse Celine Dion has been a Vegas staple for years, though she is set to fold her residency in June. Meanwhile, Mariah Carey, Gwen Stefani and Lady Gaga have all recently scored their own headlining gigs. Like Aguilera, Britney Spears also revealed residency news with help from DeGeneres. Spears teased her Domination residency her in an appearance on Ellen before confirming the show. However, she has since scrapped the residency following her father’s recent health issues.
