It’s official! Christina Aguilera announced live on On Air With Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday, January 29, that she’s landed a residency in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood, Christina Aguilera: The Xperience, kicking off Friday, May 31, 2019.
“I’m excited! This is something that has been loosely in the works and being talked about actually kind of since Voice days and things like that," Xtina told Ryan. "It always has to be a family affair and since the success of the Liberation tour as well, I had to feel super confident about what I was getting into."
The Grammy-nominated songstress released Liberation in June 2018 after taking a six year hiatus and followed with a subsequent tour. Christina Aguilera: The Xperience will kick off in May and take place in the Zappos Theater in Planet Hollywood.
"This is a place where I can bring all my fans together and enjoy a magical night to escape and let loose and allow them to use their own imaginations," Xtina continued of her residency. "It's an amazing outlet for creativity so I’m super, super excited for this opportunity and sky's the limit for surprises and collaborations and all the excitement that Vegas has to offer."
The powerhouse songstress explained that her Liberation tour was like "dipping my foot in the water" and that she's ready to embrace her return.
"I'm doing what I love the most and that's getting back to that stage ... after having not being on tour in a decade ... I’m so excited to be back home again and going back on that stage again and being on tour was like coming home," she added. "And my kids were so funny they would get mad at me if I did bring them up on stage after a show so I was like this is going to be good, I got the OK signal from them .. it's going to be a very special Xperience."
