Aguilera will follow Aussie sensation Kylie Minogue, who is set to open the brand new venue with a residency beginning November 3.

I look forward to bringing Las Vegas a new show that fuses music, sophistication, and art in ways I have never performed before,” Aguilera said in a press release. “What I love about the intimacy at Voltaire at The Venetian Resort is how up-close-and-personal I can be with the audience … a truly modern twist on the performance experience.”

Aguilera’s first two shows are December 30 and 31, with a slate of 2024 dates set to be announced on Friday, October 13, according to the release. That’s the same date seats will go on sale for all shows via
