FOUR decades since her aptly titled debut, “I Should Be So Lucky,” Kylie Minogue’s career has never been better.
As well as topping the charts with “Padam Padam” – her first Top 10 hit in thirteen years – The Sun can also reveal that the singer landed her first-ever gig in Las Vegas.
According to insiders, Kylie Minogue will be on stage at the brand new mega nightclub Voltaire in the Venetian Tower in October.
The intimate 1,000-seat venue is said to be based on cabaret shows, which will see the “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head” singer use cutting-edge technology in her performances.
Unlike other artists like Britney Spears and Lady Gaga, Kylie negotiated a deal that doesn’t commit her to performing exclusively in Sin City for years.
British fans who can’t make the journey across the pond will be able to see her in 2024 when she embarks on her Arena Tension Tour.
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.
The Sun’z Bizarre column first told the world about the Lostboy track in April, which has gone on to become a worldwide hit.
The clearest indication that she was aiming to finally conquer America was when Kylie debuted the title live on American Idol in May.
A source said: “The deal has lasted about a year and will be officially announced in the summer.”
“Vegas bosses were keen for Kylie to open the show ahead of November’s Grand Prix, which is a huge international draw for the city.”
“Kylie has always been the ultimate pop showgirl and her performance in Las Vegas will be no different.
“After years of focusing on Europe and Australia, it’s a dream come true to close a deal like this in America.”
“Plans for her Tension tour haven’t held up – it will take place next year but the exact dates are still being worked out.”
Fans will no doubt be scrambling for tickets when they go on sale in a few months.
