Kelly Clarkson Is Heading to Vegas As She Announces 2020 Residency: ‘I’m Stoked’
A full plate! Kelly Clarkson is packing her bags and heading to Las Vegas next year, as the big-time star has announced a residency in Sin City.
“I have so many jobs going on right now and they all involve me being located in L.A. I love everything I’m doing, but the one thing that bummed me out was that I am so busy I’m not able to tour. Vegas was the perfect option for me to still be able to do shows and play music and see the fans,” the 37-year-old told Billboard of her residency which will begin on April 1, 2020, at Zappos Theater inside Planet Hollywood.
“All roads lead back to the ‘Wheel of Fortune’ slot machines,” the singer continued. “Seriously, the gratification I receive when I hear the machine yell ‘Wheel-Of-Fortune’ is a level of bliss that only exists when babies laugh and puppy’s love. I think I may or may not have a problem.” Kelly Clarkson: Invincible is expected to wrap up on September 26, 2020.
“I’m able to do things with this show that I’ve never been able to carry out on the road,” the American Idol alum gushed. “We get to stay for a bit, see and hang with fans, and then you’re not having to travel every night to a different city which can be exhausting. I’m stoked to have a home away from home [in Vegas].”
While Kelly is already busy with her own daytime talk show and working as a judge on The Voice, the TV personality is still hoping for more shows in the near future. “I’ve always loved performing in Las Vegas and the high energy of the crowds. Musicians from every genre of music, young and old, rookies and legends, it’s just become this fantastic city filled with artists from everywhere,” the mother-of-four told the outlet.
“So many of my musical idols have had, and still have, incredible residencies on the Strip, and I’m so excited to create my own,” she added. “We literally could only fit in the amount of dates that are available because my schedule is so crazy but I hope to have more dates in the future.”
We seriously can’t wait for this!
