KYLIE Minogue’s first Las Vegas residency has been in such high demand that her first shows sold out within hours of going on sale.
The Australian music icon, 55, will open her first shows in Sin City on November 3 – with the first ten dates going on sale Tuesday.
Within minutes, fans around the world were looking for tickets, and the overwhelming demand caused the site to temporarily crash.
For Kylie’s most intimate performances in over a decade, prices start at $200 (£170) for standing room and go up to $2,000 for bottle service tables.
A source said: “It was crazy. At one point, the digital queue to get to the site took over seven hundred hours.”
“Kylie is a huge artist in the UK and Europe and of course at home in Australia, but America has always been the only place she’s left – if the last 24 hours are anything to go by, she’s finally made it.”
The Spinning Around singer will set up camp at the exclusive new Voltaire Venue in the Venetian Tower.
The state of the launch site is modeled after a cabaret show and can accommodate just 1,000 lucky fans.
Teasing the shows, Kylie told The Sun last month: “It was literally blood, sweat and tears. Bruises, sleepless nights, all those things.
“But the reward and what keeps me going is that there’s a moment in a show where you feel like you’re weightless or you’re surfing.
“I’ve always thought that shows are a cosmic thing because we come with energy and the fans come with energy.
“They’ve got their babysitter, they’re taking some time off from work, they’re spending their hard-earned money to get to a show, or they’re dressed up.
“They come with so much energy before the curtain goes up. You really are amazing. So the blood, sweat and tears are worth it.”
For decades, Kylie, who has sold more than 80 million records, has been playing sold out venues around the world.
But it’s been four years since her last major stage show, after the pandemic wrecked her world tour plans.
The Sun first revealed how Kylie was involved in secret talks to follow the likes of Britney Spears and Sir Elton John to Vegas last year.
While Kylie will be kicking off in Las Vegas just weeks after the release of her sixteenth album, Tension, her Las Vegas setlist will be more of a greatest hits show than fully focused on her new album.
Upcoming album title Vegas High – an electronic pop smash – will be on the setlist, as will lead single Padam Padam.
Since its release in Padam, “Padam” has become a global hit – becoming Kylie’s highest charting debut in the UK since 2011.
